Photo blogger Frank Cone and photographer friends Josh Tarr and Joel Mattson have been having a lot of fun this fall experimenting with shots of burning steel wool. We asked Frank to explain how they capture the unique images. Steel wool that can be purchased at any hardware store can be ignited by using flame or a 9-volt battery. There are several tutorials online on how to achieve this effect, but basically what you need is steel wool, an egg whisk and something to spin it. I’ve been using a dog leash, most tutorials suggest a steel cable.
