    man, I just shoot all mine last minute/on the fly. What I found to work best for me is (for those using SLR cameras) is to bathe the vinyl with the camera's flash a few times, in the dark, before taking your shot. The flash bulb is a really heavy charger, and works both stronger, and quicker (basically immediate) than any other source of light I have at my disposal. There should be a button on your SLR for "flash testing" or whatever you want to call it, just hit the toy from a few different angles without actually snapping pics & you're done. Step by step for me is: place the toy, place the camera, dial in aperture/exposure, auto focus w/lights on, change to manual focus, lights off, flash-charge toy, snap pics. Oh, and always shoot with really low ISO - or else you end up with a non-black background, and grainy noise all over :|

    nice - GID & black blanks of each of those 3 is sweet :D

    black lights are good, but cfl bulbs are fine too (and actually useful for lighting things). my overhead light fixture uses a cfl bulb and after having it on for just a few minutes the glow guys are pretty well charged.

    These are the translucent blue-green ones. The color seems to let just enough light in to charge the BBs and just enough glow out to look cool.
