QuiteTheKiwi wrote: They're probably using a timer accessory and bulb mode, such that once you press the shutter button on your timer, the shutter will open and remain open until you press the button again to close it. Without the timer accessory, and in bulb mode, you would have had to keep holding down the shutter button during the exposure (well, at least my Canon Rebel that is). Try practicing by setting your camera on a tripod at night or in a dark room at your longest exposure time and "drawing" your name. Remember that the camera will see it backwards so unless you want to mirror them in PS or other editing software, you'll need to draw it backwards. Hope this helps

I chose to use a 2nd curtain flash setting (Some cameras will allow you to set this in the custom function menu for the on-board flash if you don't have an external flash) to freeze my subject at the end. I recently did a shoot for a custom 4x4 shop using a similar technique using the light to catch the same person in two places in the same frame. The overall darkness allowed my subject to move to the final position.
