How was this done...

Assuming it wasn't photoshopped how could the heart have been drawn?

Long exposure, waving a long thin dark stick around with a light on the end, holder out of shot.

@HP, that was my thought but not easy to get right.

Re: How was this done...

Easy if done with TWO light sticks.... ( symmetrical movements...) .. much practiced in a large mirror beforehand, to get an equi-symmetrical (?) effect

Possibly done with laser.

Re: How was this done...

Wasn't there a slow exposure artist who did some very intricate works of "art" with various coloured lights?
A lot more complicated than a simple heart.

In the good old days you'd do this by forgetting to wind on the film between two photo's

Re: How was this done...

given  the array of lights in the backround its possibly done with a heart shaped tube on a wire over the street with a special weave of silver or some such material inside it to change the colour gradually as it shines over the surface, because without using some touch up tools theres no other way to get that image suspended without a person being there ......

Uhmm, everybody is concentrating on the heart shape, but what about the moving traffic trails behind. I would ask if this was actually "old fashioned" film rather than digital, and AliacAdair might have something.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

A lot of 35mm cameras had a sprocket drive release button to achieve a deliberate double exposure.....my Pentax has.

Amazing how the price of film cameras dropped once digital arrived on the scene.
I Sold a Nikon FE for about half what I paid for it but it will be interesting to see if in years to come the old film cameras become a thing of financial value.

Re: How was this done...

With the hundreds and thousands even the most exclusive and expensive of film cameras were produced in, I would think its pretty unlikely gleneagles.
However I have a couple of Pentax ME Super's (an f1.2 and a f1.7) an Olympus 35 Trip and a battered Nikon F body that are just waiting until they're a hundred years old to become antiques, but there will still be thousands around tucked away in cupboards, some boxed in mint condition.
This doesn't apply to large format film cameras of course, many of which are still in use <while the film is still available>

The only way that could happen is by collectors of antiques Wink

Re: How was this done...

Apparently, some film cameras are already collectors' items .. though the prices still don't come close to what was paid for them originally: I read that my Nikon FM2 was collectable, but the prices only tend to be around £100 - £200.
As for the picture: those who guessed long exposure, go to the top of the class.  This is confirmed by the car lights on the left hand side.
