My first Steel Wool

picHe humors me, even though he’d rather be watching Sports Center. I have long been in love with long exposure photography and the art of light painting in particular; steel wool being my favorite. If had to sum up steel wool photography in 3 words it would be, “spinning.burning.sparks”. I’ve played around with light painting here and there, but needless to say I’ve been reluctant to try my hand at steel wool. Until a few days ago on a dewy night, I asked my husband to follow me outside to a secluded location and “bring the fire extinguisher just in case” He gave me heavy side eye but humored me nonetheless. So here in this photo we have my husband and my first steel wool. I promised myself that I would experiment more with this technique down in 2014 so more to follow soon. Stay tuned!
