    My son's in the process of modding his '88 Honda CBR Hurricane. He's going to be chopping the chassis and seat. I tried some shots while he was working. A few came out. Most didn't.

    #2 really illustrates the importance of safety glasses. Notice the ricochet sparks off his?

    If I get the opportunity to do this again, I'm going to try turning off the over head garage lights.

    Which one illustrates the importance of safety gloves? Especially when the guard on the angle grinder is removed. Sorry my sister works for the Dept of Occupational Health and Safety.

    The shots are great. I'm a sucker for grinding / welding shots. Shot number 3 is a bit on the boring side since the shutter speed is a little fast. But number 1 is by far my favourite.

    If you have an off camera flash I suggest you try the photos with some really harsh light to get some grunge look.

    Off camera flash is a great idea. As is the idea re: gloves. :)

    these are cool :]

    a slightly longer exposure time would've made the sparks really stand out, great job though
