You should try some long exposures and light painting with a Maglite or small LED flashlight for some of your staged scenes.

I think you'd catch on to that real quick and take advantage of it.

As you can see by the camera screen that it was a 4 second exposure. In this case extra lighting wasnt necessary since I was looking for a light source on the wagon to match the screen. I think the final shot doesnt need any additional light. The only reason I shot it this way was because of the lousy snow storm going on outside. But thanks for your advice. I have a drawer full of maglites and LED flashlights as you suggest just for the purpose you suggest.

Winter sucks sometimes, but your creativity makes up for it. Nicely done, thinking outside the box again.

The chuck wagon is by Franklin Mint in 1:16 scale, the same as the Wells Fargo Stagecoach I posted here earlier. They make a good pair.
