2) Tap ‘Light Trail’ for more settings- change your shutter to 15 seconds. This means that there is more lights coming into the camera because the shutter is open for longer.

3) Get a small torch or light object.

4) Place your phone/iPod/iPad on a flat steady surface and click the capture button (the camera)

5) Switch the camera so you can see yourself on the screen – paint yourself with the light from the torch like this:

6) Try to keep still
