Earlier in the year, I bought some brightly color sparklers for a slow motion video shoot I was doing.
On that original shoot, the bright color on the outside of the sparklers didn’t really translate into colored
sparks when lit, unfortunately. But the sparklers looked so good in slow motion that it didn’t matter.
So a couple of nights ago while I was looking for something else, I came across some of those leftover colored sparklers.
I photographed the group of sparklers under flourescent light with a Nikon D810 and
a Zeiss 100mm ZF macro lens
O for a muse of fire
The brightest heaven of invention
A kingdom for a stage, princes to act
and monarchs to behold the swelling scene!
