Love the clarity of those steel wool shots, and how you're framed in the centre of them. I also like the shot of the bubbles on the previous page too, would like to see that in B&W :)
Thanks. This was my first outing with steel wool. I saw some people whom tried it (on Youtube) and burnt themselves, just before I went and tried it. I was a little nervious.
In the end it was so much fun I kept trying new things and my wife even came out to watch. She is never interested in my hobby.
The framing was actually hard. Where I did this was pitch black. It was 70 kms from the nearest large city. Very little light polution. I pointed a torch at a stick to get focus.
Then I clicked the shutter on a 10 second time delay whilst I tried in the dark to find myway to the water line. When my shoes were wet, I knew I was there.
Shutter open on bulb after the 10 seconds so I had to light and spin very quickly. When it all died, I had to find my back to the camera and release the shutter.
Finding myself in the center of the photo was a pleasent surprise.
