Pyro and sparkler art go together like cheese and ham but adding in the prospect of photographing someone travelling on a skateboard too and you need some specialist handling of the situation. Come on down David Lehl, lifestyle photographer from Denver, Colorado who takes on the unusual and not uncommonly, the downright dangerous in his work.
In this instance, the idea was to photograph skateboarding with a difference and he certainly captured it perfectly.
His original idea was to use smoke bombs both in front of the flash and behind the skater to create some brilliant atmospheric imagery which came out pretty well. But, he wanted more so the next idea was to strap sparklers to the skateboard to create sparks for the ‘grind’ trick which came out beautifully.
Using a long exposure (2s f/5.6) to capture the light trails created by the sparklers and then do exactly the same trick again but this time photograph with a flash he took the shot with 1/1000s f5.6 exposure to freeze the image. As you can see, highly successful and some fabulous shots too.
Hello – Moonlight Shadow here again – not much chatter this time, lets get right down to it – sparklers! I have picked up a pack of Epic’s new Mammoth Sparklers, and used them alongside some older ones. This is a video of my findings, with commentary, and also serves as a basic safety guide to sparklers as well.
If you just want to see the Epic sparklers, go to 5:17 onwards! As always, this is just personal advice – and be sure to always use fireworks safely and sensibly. I love to see a sparkler, but they are very very hot – and can easily burn. Supervise your children if they are using sparklers, I’d suggest hold their arms while they do it, at first.
But yeah – these are the new thick wired “double dipped” Sparklers from Epic – check out the video below!
Sparkler art question mark.
No need to be confused by this, this is just another great example of sparkler art.
Sparkler art is the clever use of sparklers and photography, combined to make brilliant art like this.
We love sparkler art of all kinds, send us yours and we will feature it on the Epic Fireworks Blog, the best fireworks blog in the world.
