Last night I organized at the special request of one my students, an introduction to the “Sparks” technique.
This technique is close to “light-painting”, uses the sparks formed by the high-speed spinning of burning steel wool to produce spectacular effects on pictures.
We met in a tunnel covered by graffiti, close to his home to try this technique.
We first started with some exposure and composition tests with “classic” light-painting:
But these first shots, helped us discover the best settings for this kind of shooting and learn the technique better. After some trial and explanations, the technique was much better controlled. This is one of the last photos:
If you also want to learn and try a new technique, don’t hesitate to contact me.
