    Many of us tried the light paint tricks demonstrated by Nokia on Lumia 1020. But we could set the shutter speed to 1 sec at maximum. But I have found a trick to get 4 sec shutter speed. As we know already light paint needs dark surroundings. As usual, set white balance to Incandescent(Light Bulb Icon), Focus to Infinite, ISO to 100. But do not set shutter speed manually to 1 sec. Instead leave it to auto. Make sure you do not have much light in front of camera. In full darkness Nokia Camera App will automatically set the shutter speed to 4 sec. Then quickly take your photo before it detects any light and changes to less shutter speed. After a photo it will change shutter speed to 1/8 or something even less. Just slide the controller to manual and again to auto. It will again adjust the speed to 4 sec. The following screenshots and images are taken from my Lumia 520.
