Stevhan is not a stranger to this blog, however not exactly in the way you would expect. His basement was used a few weeks ago for the shoot I did with Finite Automata. He is an interesting fellow, and I don’t exactly remember how we actually met. But that doesn’t matter.
When he contacted me through my weekly call to action on Instagram and said he wanted to do something with fire. I’d be lying if I both wasn’t A) a little scared, and B) seriously intrigued. So I made sure I cleared time in my schedule to shoot.
Sadly for you there isn’t any of the fireball photos in this batch, I shot all of those digital (and posted them to my news blog a few weeks ago; by the time this goes live). However I did get some of his grider act on film. And for shooting in almost pitch darkness except for a modeling light for focus, I’m happy to have captured anything at all.
