Burning Wire Wool

For Christmas 2015 I was given a Photography Experience Day, which I finally got around to using in December 2016!

The idea is simple. Stuff some wire wool in a metal balloon whisk. Attach the whisk to a dog lead. Light wool, and swing lead. Take a longish exposure picture of the lunatic swinging the burning metal - the shots here are at ISO 100 f/13 for 20 seconds.

It's actually pretty fun. If you'd like a go, and you can get to the New Forest area, check out Photo Experience Days with Michael Palmer
