Playing With Fire

I spent an afternoon earlier this week in a completely dark studio, playing with a can of lighter fluid and a box of matches. Probably not the safest thing to be getting up to, but I was working on creating a set of assets to use in another, longer term project and overall I was really happy with the results.

Below are some of my favourite shots from the session (with the first definitely being my favourite, as it’s a very graphical abstract shape). I really like the sense of motion that is visible in these and I can definitely see why people often use the words “dancing” to describe the movement of fire and individual flames.

I also see feminine shapes, but then maybe that’s just me!

If you want to see more images they’re here.
