Cool stuff, Doc.
How the heck did you capture this?
I clamped the matches between two pieces of wood. Composed and focused. Then hit the match with a lighter. I use a remote shutter release to further reduce camera shake.
great stuff. i like approaching it as a series of shots. the one alone was fantastic, but the series brings new interest. what is particularly interesting to me is that the flaming thing is invisible. i thought the matchhead chemicals would be bursting into flame, but it all is a process if igniting gasses, not solid objects exploding. cool.
Thanks. Soon I’ll be posting a macro of a candle wick. It’s instructive on how candles actually produce heat and light.
I love this!
