    I would like to see what you guys can do with a simple prompt. strike a match in a completely dark room and shoot it during different stages of burning, from the initial spark to the fading glow.

    Interesting idea. Just need to find a way to hold both the burning match and camera so that it works out.:lmao:

    Nice shots! I had never thought of using a full book of matches, nice twist on it. When I tried striking a match in the dark I really liked the lighting effects it had on my hand and the contrast with the background.
