To start, you'll need:
SLR camera  (35 mm Film or digital)
a tripod (or other steady surface)
flashlights, laser pens, glow sticks, sparklers, candles, lighters...anything that lights up!
and the dark.

And you might want some little assistants!

hello. i love ur idea however when i change my canon t3i to the setting you said it just dosnt take a picture. i think because it can tell theres no light in the surrounding it refuses to take a picture i cant change my f-stop in tv mode and i set it to 30'' and the iso is 100. help !!!

i just noticed it has to be on manual focus not auto. =p

good :)
