This thread is for all of those Steel Wool shots! I hope this thread does not turn into a thread about my shots but more a learning thread where others can learn from all of us learning from each other! Posting bad shots are the best way to learn, posting good shots is great for people to try to beat. This is NOT a post your best shot thread! This will hopefully be a good learning thread but your support is needed. Please post!
Here is a video tutorial I just made....Click here
For those of you who are not aware of Steel Wool Photography, Here is the deal.
Take Steel Wool type 00, 000 or 0000 and put it into some kind of holder. Set it on fire using a 9-Volt battery or a lighter and spin at a high rate of speed. It will melt and send sparks showering outward. ****FIRE HAZARD**** Molten pieces of steel are hot and can set things on fire...It is not as bad as it sound, kind of like getting it with welders sparks...bounces right off.
I use a kitchen whisk with a camera strap (first good use for a stock camera strap I have ever found)
Here are some of my results
I will go more into technique later if anyone is interested.
