These pyro wheels look like doorways to a whole new universe
These astonishing rainbow coloured light displays are wild Catherine Wheels on a whole new level.
Hotel audio-visual floor manager, Chris Matthew Brady, 53 from San Diego, CA. set up his camera in Borrego Springs and at the beach in Coronado for shots of his new-found party trick.
Chris saw photos of burning wool online about nine months ago and immediately checked out instructional videos on Youtube to see what they were doing.
Chris said: “I love the feeling of being out in the dark like some mad scientist playing with light and fire!
“I started with just burning steel wool on the end of a line, swinging it over my head for the first few shots. Then I thought of adding some colour into the shot.
“I went to a local sporting goods store and bought all different coloured glow sticks, and started taping them to the line with the burning steel wool at the end.
“One of the last things I tried was adding battery powered LED lights to the line. I like to shoot this effect at the beach, using the water for a reflection.
“I do not post process anything so these shots come right out of the camera-my Canon 5DS-R, with a Canon 16-35mm lens.
“I also use a intervalometer with the camera, so I can set-up the shot and let the camera start taking multiple shots while I swing my burning steel wool and glow sticks.
