    Bob, what would you like to know? Trish: this was steel wool.

    I guess the question is "HOW do you do this?"

    Camera setting mostly and can I assume you used 0000 steel wool? Did you just light the wool or add some turps of other flammable liquid?

    I used both 000 & 0000 grades. Exposures varied from 5 to 30 seconds, 100 to 3200 ISO, f8 to f13, depending on lighting conditions and effects that I wanted to achieve. I'm still experimenting.

    This is just so new to me... I'm amazed! Jason - is the method that you setup your camera and then get in front and make a rope out of some super fine steel wool and then light it on fire and spin it around yourself? How fast does it burn? Can you suggest a website where this all explained? Thank you!!!

    Okay, me again, well that was easy... I googled and there a million pages with instructions (OMG where have I been?)... very cool one with tutorial video: http://photoextremist.com/steel-wool-photography-tutorial

    Trish: We had 4 cameras set up in different spots all triggered remotely with PocketWizards. I or my friend would spin and I would just press a button to trigger the cameras simultaneously. :-)
