Went out last night to try something new. A few images of my first attempts.
I forgot to turn my headlamp off here.
Love the effect. Pretty cool overall.
I get how the circles & spirals are made, and I like how your LED headlight provides the blue contrast. But what causes all the other shooting lights/sparks?
I used 0000 steel wool in a cooking wisp and swung on a handle with downrigger wire. The sparks that come off are long lasting and often are illuminated when they hit the ground, break and bounce. In this picture I started swinging it on a vertical plane while slowly rotating my body 180 degrees. Then I swung it over my head for about 5 seconds until it burned out.
This was a test run and I plan to stage another on where the scenery is more interesting.
It was fun,
Congrats...that kind of stuff always lights me up! Bad pun, but I could do that....(insert music from Wizard of Oz)....if I only had a brain!...and a note of permission from my mom.
