Photo of the Day – Lit Match

I decided to play around with more high-speed macro photography and since I did water the first time, I thought I would go with a different element: fire.

With a fast shutter speed to capture the flame and some low-powered sb-800s to the left and right of the match stick (stuck straight up with a tiny bit of blu-tack), all that’s required is another lit match to ignite the subject.

A lot of matches went up in flames and this one turned out the nicest. Click the image to see it larger on flickr.

Lit Match

And of course, soon after it burns out, a match looks like this.
