I've been working on some color-tips for my Night-Writer light-pen. The colors aren't exactly what I want just yet, but with a few more tries, they should be soon! 

Here is the first image I took with what I thought was going to be a red tip - Unfortunately, I'll need to make another that is actually red and not this pinkish hue you see.

Check out the other colors I'm working on below!

With any luck, these will be looking color-accurate and available soon - the way they work is you just plug them in over the recessed LED tip of the Night-Writer and viola! Multi-colored light-art.

Found a natural pedestal out in Red Rock Canyon - the moon did a nice job of cutting the landscape in half with it's shadow, allowing me to cast color gel'd light in the dark areas while my model was still back-lit.

If you'd like to shoot these kind of images yourself, try using this set of color gels - I tend to like the strongest colors and contrasts - red and blue work best, teal and orange are great too.
