Still life with fire #1

Happy Hallowe'en. This and the photograph below are continuations of my experients using long exposures and moving flames to light a scene. I started this experiment with my October 23 blog post. This is about a 15 second exposure. I used an oil candle attached to a black metal rod to maneuver the flame through the scene. It took most of a roll of 36-exposure film to get a shot where I was sufficiently pleased with the shape of the flame track.

No real deep meaning intended with these. Just something fun I wanted to try. Boo!

That is a very great idea for photography. I want to see what else you can do with that idea. Maybe try something shaped like a glow stick or something?
