Sarritah in the Fire
Sara is a super versatile creative. Tatoo's and Fashion as well as Photography. She has an eye for lines and patterns. We met at some festival not too long ago and started collaborating on occasion. Since she is now getting into fire art we wanted to create something together for each other.
First, you see the portraits to feature her.
As several times before I used a longer fire stick lit with some organic oil lit up to create the fire trail. Once lit up I move around her so fast that She does not catch the fire.
This image is was taken in a 7.5-second single exposure. The Camera was set to ISO 100 and the lens to F14 on my 16-35mm F2.8 lens.
Of course, she would also play with her fire tools creating fire light trails.
It is very different when creating a foto with light trails in comparison with entertaining with a crowd with a dynamic performance. To make the shot look nice one has to think of the shapes one creates always with the perspective towards the camera.
First trails look more random and chaotic. Once the understanding of space and time rises she can create predictable patterns. She was really good at understanding the principle since she is also a good photographer.
The night was really short. My friends started to get really hungry. I was just getting into the jizz and we had to stop and go back home. Then I understood why. There was food but also a lot of my friends for a surprise party. Yesterday was my birthday and everyone showed up. So Sara and I have to go out again to finalize our shooting. Super cool surprise for my birthday ;-)
How to do the fire Light Painting?
The tool I used was an aluminum rod with a Kevlar rope that is then lit with lamp oil. Of course, the Kevlar does now look black after it burned one time.
I hope it was also inspirational. If you have more questions please do not hesitate. I am happy to share my knowledge.
