Drawing with Light

Check out this really cool alphabet I found on the blog, Balla Dora Typo-Grafika. I love the idea of using light as a material and how it compliments the angular qualities of these letters, though I’m not exactly sure how these letterforms were created. (perhaps I will post a comment on that blog to find out) My first instinct would be to say they are timed exposures. In other words, the shutter of the camera was left open as the letter was “drawn” with the flashlight. I have done this before, but I don’t think that is the case here, since the hands are completely in focus in all of the photographs. Any ideas?
