I got paired with Holly Ferocious!
She gave me this challenge:
".......here's yours: play with fire.
I know you have a few shots using candles, but I'd like you to try and really capture the essence of fire to you. Some ideas: experiment with shutter speeds, daylight vs night, light painting, anything else you can dream up!"

'Get Pushed' always leaves me a tiny bit torn ...you sign up....you get pushed out of your comfort zone.....and you discover that it's not that comfortable ...(funny that:) ... but then...you get going on the idea ...and then you find yourself signing up for the next round! ...and round it goes:)....

I thought about this one quite a lot, and I came up with several words I associated with fire...including:... warmth...heat ...light... destructive ...'change' ...transformation....hypnotic....inviting ...mesmerising...
I knew that I wanted to try and catch something changing from one state to another through fire.......and I made a little bonfire in the garden with paper and textiles ...amongst other things.............I had this image in my head of how paper turns to fine powder without losing it's shape immediately, and I thought a loosely woven cloth might make patterns with the flames.....
.....and then I just clicked away. I tried different shutter speeds...and found 1/50 1/60 to be good for what I wanted ...and the faster the better to catch the flames....
This one is my favourite.
