How to Create Raindrops of Light with Steel Wool
GoPro just released this 4-minute video tutorial titled “Creating Fire Rain: A Steel Wool Experiment.” It’s a look at how you can create raindrops of light by burning and spinning steel wool, a technique that has gotten a lot of attention (both good and bad) over the past few years.
In the video, we see Rob Nelson and Jonas Stenstom from Untamed Science step through the process of creating fire rain. A model holding an umbrella was asked to stand in the path of sparks, creating dazzling results in long exposure photos.
The video above was shot entirely with the GoPro HERO4 camera.
