Fire spinning

I love to fire spin. You might be asking what the heck is he doing? or something like that. Well, it’s easy to do. I’m using steel wool stuffed in a whisk, set on fire with a 9-volt battery and started spinning. I had my camera set on a tripod and my settings were f/6.7 at ISO200 with a 30 sec exposure. This is so much fun.

  1. I love the fire spinning. And I think the triangles in the swingset are pretty interesting, too. It’s like there’s a picture within a picture.

    1. Well, it would be a different capture. One of my family members took several shots with his iPhone and it came out really cool. I’m going to do a shoot like he did next time. The sparks were so cool

    1. These are really fun to do. I’m going to experiment next time I do one. I did have a “fail” when I started spinning with my first shot. I got it lit, started spinning and it flipped out of my wire whisk. I did catch it on camera and it was pretty cool. I’m going to use the shot as a texture

      1. It’s pretty amazing that’s for sure. Leave it to the peeps in the south to come up with this idea. -:)

        1. I’m not sure where it came from. I saw it being done by somebody in Australia and watched a tutorial on YouTube to see how it’s done

            1. Somebody was spinning an LED light string so I talked to them about it and noticed them fire spinning. I had to try it out. I did and got hooked. I love spinning.
