Thats Awesome! Whats the source of the fire?
The source of the fire was a piece of paper towel soaked in charcoal lighter fluid. Black fabric with a piece of plexiglass under the glass and LED lights to the rear and sides provided the blue lighting.
that is really cool looking.
Is the paper towel laying on top of the ice? If not, maybe try it with the paper towel somewhere in the middle so you can hopefully catch some flames coming from within and between the ice cubes.
Yes it is sitting on the ice with the ice built up around it. I did try it in the ice however I could not get it to light/stay lit.
Very nice, but you may want to photoshop the hot pixel.
DOH never noticed that.
I'd use alcohol so that there's no nasty black ashes from the paper towel.. Just get some Bacardi 151, drink half of it, then pour some over the ice and light it.. You should get some awesome shots half in the bag and with some luck you won't burn your house down..
But seriously, try alcohol.. Sometimes the flame is invisible, though, but it's worth a shot..
not worried about the whole "burning the house down" thing.
Thats me turning my air on in the yellow helmet.
And as far as Alcohol goes I would NEVER waste 151 even for photography sake :lmao: Rubbing alcohol burns clear. The lighter fluid worked quite well.
thats a great shot!
very creative and great use of lighting
Cool.. You're lucky-you're not too fat to turn on your own air, like some of us..
What were you guys doing at that fire-trying to save the foundation.. LOL.. That was a hot one, and obviously a total loss.
Here I am at a 2-alarm fire in my town, as well as my avatar being me at a car fire..
