I gave the technique of using burning wire wool and a slow shutter speed featured in the post below another try this evening and just thought I would add a quick update saying don't get too cocky if you try this like I did in the picture above! maybe practise a bit with swinging it around not lit. I managed to hit myself in the back of the head with a burning clump of steel and this is what happened, the worse thing isn't the stinging but the smell of burnt hair. saying all this though I do still love this technique and will be giving it many more attempts to capture something truly amazing. But maybe wearing a hat.
