Revisits by Felosoraptor Revisits by Felosoraptor
I am revisiting old spots and shooting steel wool. daytime is just a scenic shot and night is the badassery that goes on. this is all done on film and in progress but i'm shooting digital as well for that instant gratification.

Pier Drawing V by Felosoraptor  this is the same shot from sept 2012. the comparison is quite astounding. Seeing more of the background and stars and landscape versus just the steel wool is quite satisfying. 

also i know i am a slow learner to things and its good to see that after i year i can work with adobe bridge and fix my white balance (which all steel wool spinners should, its the greatest flaw in most work i see) 

Edit: Thank you so much for the DD! I'm so honored to finally receive it and I want to thank everyone for being so awesome and supportive!

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-10-16
Felosoraptor has great style; Revisits is both an eye-catcher and unique! ( Suggested by MarthaTuma and Featured by 3wyl )
Vision: Visually, this shot is spectacular, the extending streaks of light from the spirals creates a huge impact. Compared to the original shot, this revisit is a huge improvement. With the soft lines of light, and the hard roughness of the concrete floor, this is a very impressive shot. I also love that the long exposure has captured the stars, giving a tranquil background to sit alongside an impressive foreground.

Originality: This type of technique is vastly popular with many photographers, however there are those who utilize this technique well, and those that do not. This shot however, uses this technique very well. The sparks splashing across the floor, and flying through the air, these accompany the central lines of light very well.

Technique: When it comes to long exposures and light trails, this is one of the greater examples of this. The great circular streaks and sparks shooting outwards creates a huge impact, as well as the pool of light underneath everything on the floor. What I love most is the feint outline of your silhouette intertwined in the light itself, giving off a vibrant sense of immersion.

Impact: My eye is constantly drawn to the large set of circles on the right-hand side, the bright warm lines of light create a huge impact on this image. As the primary point of the image, the spirals and sparks are absolutely beautiful to look at.
