    I noticed that A-Team mentioned using tissue paper over the flashlight. Maybe that is the key to keep it darker in the background... to diffuse the light.

    I held a pink camisole over my light but as you can see the room I was in wasn't 100% dark. I suppose if you could make your room completely dark you could achieve the results you're after. I kinda like being able to see a little of the room. Makes it feel more real...to me anyways.....

    Those LED keychain lights work really well for this, and they come in a bunch of colors.

    I did have about 6 feet of space behind me, so that may have helped in achieving a totally black background. Plus, cupping my hand over the flash light before and after I was ready to use it prevented any stray light from reflecting off my surroundings.

    On my next shot I think I will try a longer exposure and a couple colors!

    I just saw an image of a naked girl wrapped in light painting today and I thought, "I have GOT to try this! How does it work?!" And then I came here and I found this. YAY! I can't wait to try it out, my husband wants to see if we can manage it later tonight. Thanks!

    Here's my result - I had to improvise with the focusing, as I didn't have anybody home at the time to focus for me! I focused on the chair next to where I was planning to stand, then just moved the camera over. I used a regular flashlight with purple tissue paper held over the end. f/8 and an 8 second exposure at ISO100.

    Love

    Thanks for the idea!
