Fire Photography: Matchstick
June 23, 2017
"Photographing matches in the moments of being lit is easy."
Ha-ha. Don't let anyone tell you that.
- Get a bunch of matches
- Get a bunch of, "I'm ready to repeat this consistently for dozens of times," thoughts going.
- Set up a fixed match holder
- Use the rough strike-on material to ignite the match and exit frame quickly
- Photograph resulting ignition in continuous photo mode with a high shutter speed
See? Photographing matches being lit is easy.
