I haven't bought any new gear. And I don't think I can afford some anytime soon. So I need to improvise. I've been experimenting with some black cloth, long exposure and the cheap flashlight I was using on the Lego series.
I'm pretty happy with the result. I might write a short tutorial on how to achieve this effect with a $1 worth of gear. The tutorial should be published soon on tookapic's brand new blog.
