Photographer: Dale Johnson, Seattle
Photo taken: March 21, Fremont
Photographer’s description: “I was trying out a technique that I had read about and had seen some amazing shots taken with the sparks flying. I thought that the Fremont Troll would be the perfect spot to try this out, since it is all concrete and not a fire hazard. Burning steel wool is used to create the sparks. Camera: Nikon D800E, Nikon 16-35 lens at 16mm, f22, 10 seconds at ISO 100.”
Expert says: “This is a really cool photo. The photographer did a great job experimenting with a creative use of a long shutter speed and light/fire/sparks that brings out the character of the Fremont Troll in a unique photo. Props to him for getting out there and trying something new.”
