FIRE!

Couldn't resist tonight as the weather was so calm, and I needed a break from the study. So had another go at this. Love doing it, I think it looks surreal.
Ok... You've got me here. You'll have to explain this one. Is that you in the centre?

@sheliwithani Haha no prob ;)
Yep that's me, spinning a shoe lace, with some steel wool attached to the end, which had a flame put to it :D

I shared it with my photography buddies too. I think we need to give this a go, perhaps with some water on hand to put out any spot fires!!

Seriously one of the best steel wool spinning shots I've seen! Fav. Where should you put your main focus when doing these?
posted May 7th, 2012  
Terrific Fav!

@sheetalthakker Thanks! @ozziehoffy Wow thanks, what a compliment to get! :D
Well, my focus point was just on top of the little wall that's right in front me, so that the circle itself was at the same distance from the camera..if I was to do it again in that exact position, I'd try to use a more all-round focus (hard to explain) in order to try to get more of the spark lines clearer. It's very difficult to get the focuing spot on in the dark by yourself :D
@rwhite Thanks so much.
