Creative spark

The irony of fire and water comes to a head in an eye-catching photo from GFLIP, one of the many talented and prolific artists who share their work on iReport.com.

 

His usual technique is to set his camera to a long exposure and then move a light source in view of the lens so he can paint with light trails. In this case, he set up the camera and sprinted over to hold up sparklers behind a fire hydrant. The effect creates a striking silhouetted look that he felt was perfect to go along with Fourth of July fireworks. GFLIP told me he sometimes leaves himself in the shot and other times moves in such a fast blur that he remains undetected.

 

The image he sent made it into a CNN.com photo gallery showing fun and creative patriotic photos. What do you think of this technique, and what fun projects are you working on? Share your story on iReport.com and comment below with your thoughts.

Amazing effect. July 4 is one of the most important event in the history of USA. It's all worth securing for a short term loan  to celebrate independence with the fantastic fireworks display.

The young men are still under Police Custody awaiting a so-called trial. We just want the world to know the injustice being perpetrated by Muslims cabal in Nigeria. One of the soldiers wore a Liard-an Islamic armband charm. These soldiers shot at the door and broke windows louvers before gaining access to house to arrest these Christians young men.
