Get the feel on how it was by watching the making off.
I had a few encounters with the topic. Here I would like to share the first results that I really like. During the first half of 2020, I got to build a few tools for this so I will share more work as we go.
If you want to try something like that, please have a look at Zach Allans page. Fire Light Painting should be prepared very well in two aspects: Safety for the models and photographers as well as for the environment.
Thank you Zach for sharing your knowledge with others. I can’t put this in better words. Thank you!
Here is Zach’s take on safety: Find your information here.
What do you need for Light Painting with Fire?
This is the Light Painting tool you can achieve these Light Paintings with. What you see is a Kevlar rope wrapped around an aluminum rod. Later you use Candlelight oil to lit, so it burns. Well and then you better be careful not to burn yourself nor the model. Make sure you find a way to take out the fire and secure yourself and your environment to catch a fire.
