Yes that's Renita inside the Fire

Light Painting with Fire has become my Hot Topic of the month. More and more I get comfortable with the tools that I create. Every time I play with it new fire cultures evolve. The interaction with a human body gives it perspective and scale.

What I wish for next would be to give it depth and the feel of space. But experiments will follow and I will bring you along in the process.

This photo was shot as part of the Renita series that I showed a few days ago. Here I wrapped her in the fire, then stepped to the side (see the fire leaving the frame on the right) then I had the flash already in my other hand. And Flash! Stop the exposure, done.

Again What?

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.

Stay tuned for more.

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