Playing around with idea's from previous shoots I've done prviously and looking at ways to improve them..

I've always wondered what it would look like these sparks hitting skin..??..


Needless to say no one was willing to try it so "AGAIN" i had to do a self portrait for this.. i had my friends set this up..

Special thanks to Murray - my remote shutter.
Jamie - my flash
and Paul who's job it was to spin wool and hit me with as many sparks as possible..

Not 100% happy with it.. but will try again once my hair grows back Tongue

Thanks for looking

I agree but i was only armed with 1 flash gun.. the same problem i had with the umbrella shots i did a while back..

Unfortunately because this was us just mucking about I didn't take my full kit.. It was more a test of how hot those sparks are..

Going out again tonight.. so will take more flashes and nail this one.

Hopefully?
