Wrapped in the fire.

Last night Renita and Lisa have been patient with me to get close to the fire. There are still a lot of ideas but I am getting there.
Fire, I start to get the hang of it and July might just become my "Month of fire".

Long I have been fascinated with the topic now I feel comfortable with the heat. My right hand has literally no hair anymore but no skin burned. Just great shots. Thank you Renita and Zach for paving the road and motivating me. On Instagram, you find them with the following handle andromeda_fyre & zshtx
Renita is a long time fire artist and Zach has been using fire for his photos. Here I can bring together what I learned to Fire Light Painting Portraits.
There is always room for improvement but I also love the path I am on.

What happened here?

The main single exposure light painting was created with no use of Photoshop. All in-camera with only minor adjustments.

Here you see a simple lighting test. The aim was to see how I can shed light on her at the F-Stop that would work together with the Fire. Adjusting the light source step by step to go along at F13.

Lovely working together with her. If you interested in what else she is doing > See her Youtube channel:

I really hope you like it as much as I do and hopefully, it was informative and maybe also inspirational. If you have more questions please do not hesitate. I am happy to share my knowledge.
