I know you’re not supposed to, but I like it! On a similar vein running with scissors never appealed to me.  It seems to me that “all” the real photographers have a couple of shots that are in their portfolios.  Maybe not, but I sure see alot of stained glass windows, broken down vehicles, bridges, train tracks, and matches.  This was my attempt to be “real”

This was a really fun shot to create.  I got a 8.5X11 sheet of paper and spray painted it black that was my backdrop.  Using my tripod I got as close as I could focus.  Then I set up my flash at 1/64 power with an envelope out of the junk mail pile so that the flame was shielded from the flash, but the stick was lit and there was a bounce from the counter top. This is a fairly tight crop of the picture but other than that this is SOOC.

I love the detail on the match-head and the corona at the edge of the flame. This picture is dedicated to my inner firebug. 😀

Be the first to like.

  1. nice! guess I need to be daring before I can be ‘real’. Things really aren’t my forte but rather working with people….I gotta work on diversifying that!
