This new image was created using an old technique where you spin a piece of burning steel wool during a long exposure. Sparks fling off of the spinning steel wool, creating a dazzling light show. Its basically a glorified sparkler on a string!
The image was shot on Singer Island in Florida.
Imagine the World
The sun had just set, yet here I was creating a miniature sun, surrounded by the elements. It lead me to think of the cosmos, and finally our planet...
I hoped I would not be visible in the image - I try to be invisible in all my light painting photos. I figured at least a little shadow would show up, but holy cow! I completely vanished! I had my dark clothes and I turned in a circle to minimize my visibility and it worked.
I love how the sparks burst into more sparks
A beautiful setting... a crazy technique...
