Sparks and Fire! Nighttime photography on the beach of Coronado


Did you know I have a lifelong love of learning?  Well now you do!

So I signed up to attend a Night Time Photography Meet up!

One of the techniques we got to practice is photographing Steel Wool that’s been set on fire and is then spun from a rope.

Is it dangerous?  Kinda.  I had a thick hoodie on and a protective filter over my lens….

And we were in a safe place (the beach) because of course the sparks were FLYING!

The effects are different depending how the steel wool is spun….and if the holder is walking, spinning, etc.

If you are dying to see what it looks like and how to do it- I found a pretty good youtube tutorial HERE
