I got a little carried away while experimenting with digitally mirroring different photos of sparks, so I decided to show them all at once. You can check out the full size (by clicking the image) to see some of the finer details. I’ll also upload bigger versions of my favorite ones.
One night my friend suggested that we take some photos of sparks by grinding pieces of metal. I’d done something like this before, and I thought it wouldn’t be that exciting, but after a little experimentation with different camera settings, I quickly realized I was wrong. I like how the quicker exposures show some of the bits of metal splitting into smaller pieces.
