Steel Wool Part V

David Williams Photography Steel Wool Part V

f/5 | 10 seconds | iso 800 | Canon 17-40mm f/4L USM @ 17mm

Sadly, my final installment for light painting/steel wool fun! I normally don’t re-post images that I’ve posted elsewhere but had to with this one (originally posted on my Wordless Wednesday site yesterday).  Okay, so I really like this one…perhaps this is my new fav as it has all the previous elements I liked so much….stars, beach, umbrella looking “spray”, the awesomeness of the sparks hitting the water! I really dig that one single strand of spark shooting almost directly up. 😉

  1. This one is just perfect! One of my favourite shots you have published here.
    If you are interested in some travel photography or need an idea for your next vacation with great photo opportunities, you are very welcome to check out my blog. The topic of the moment is Rome.

  2. Hi David, This is an incredible shot. Such uniform light, yet chaotic at the same time. I can’t figure out how you made the circle in the middle. I am only slightly familiar with steel wool lighting. -Kim

  3. I love this. I only realised from your write up that you are standing in water. And yes the splashes in the water do look good! Beautiful light and patterns, but location is important so as not to accidentally start a fire! As for me, I am happy to look at other peoples pictures rather than try this myself!! I would just set myself on fire…!

  4. This is amazing, David! So perfectly shot! I gotta try it, just need to find an open space. I wonder if I need a permit to do it at the park…
