Fire by Ricoo Fire by Ricoo
Light the fire in your wires.

My first studio session for a long time.
No photomontage here. Just a hollow USB plug connected to an inflammable spray and taken with HDR technique (high dynamic range).
Hope you like it.

Fullview is recommended!!

Canon EOS 350D + Sigma 18-200 + Tripod.

Wow! I love how it's an actual photo of a flame from an USB, rather than a manip :)

absolutely fantatsic...
though i have to say it doesnt look like a simple photo, looks very manipulated - though im not sure if thats a good or bad thing.

the blue coloured flame is amazingly vibrant!

Ricoo Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2008
Well in fact the manipulation is very limited here. Only a the multi exposure merge, some work on the contrast and the white balance. I think that's pretty much it !
Anyway thanks a lot for your very nice comment. :aww:

Wait I don't get how you got the flame..
Reply

Ricoo Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2006
Simply a spray of inflammable gaz. You take a lighter and push the putton of the spray and you get a wonderful flame. So i took a black tube connected to the spray, pluged it in the USB plug, pushed the button of the spray and lighted it! :D

Hehe ok. :D It's just the kind of spray you use in deodorants for exemple.

what HDR merging program are u using?.....
Reply

Ricoo Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2006
In fact it's simply Photoshop using the masks... For such simple photos, it's often far better than any software you can find.

It looks very good! So that's more fire wire than USB :D

Hehe right. :D Actually i wish i had a fire wire plug to do this but the only one i had was already connected to my external drive...
Maybe i'll try something like this with a real firewire plug one day.
Thanks a lot for the comment and fav. :-)
