Tom, you said easy, but how can I achieve so "straight" curves?

Hi Chris, no special equipment is required, a dark room/area, black cloth/card, string, small torch/flashlight, mini maglite etc, camera and remote release. I made a small dark tent with black card. Fix the torch to the string and hang it from the centre of the tent ceiling, you require enough height from your lens to be able to focus. I used 50mm focused at 18inches. lay camera on it's back, set bulb in manual turn on torch turn off room lights, gently swing torch experiment with long exposure

Thanks Darrell, it is quite easy to do and fun, never quite sure what pattern will appear.
