Having dabbled in light graffiti for a while, I've experimented with a few different techniques.

This is 'fire graffiti' (similar to light graffiti) - a long exposure in the dark and using fire as my light source, i was able to move the fire around my model (and brave friend) to simulate him burning.

(only next time i'll remember my flashgun :/)

Thanks for looking

I'm amazed you managed not to set him on fire!!

The zombie look comes from the eyes. I think he's moved during the long exposure, which has given an effect you probably didn't realise you were getting yourself at the time. Looks great though, & adds to the general mood.

The only places the fire isn't quite convincing are around his left leg, & behind his left ear. They're just a little too detached from his body.

Very, very convincing otherwise, & I think your mate's far braver than I would have been. My answer would have ended in off, & been very uncomplimentary. Smile

Love the thinking behind this. Did you have to wet his clothes to stop him bursting into flames?
