Heart Afire

While looking for some macro heart ideas for Macro Mondays' current theme I found an example of a heart made from the tips of wooden matches. I added a twist by lighting the matches on fire. Set up 30 min, burn time 10-12 sec.


Image comprised of base shot with "lit" matches overlaid as a "screen layer" and then opacity of flames selectively thinned with a layer mask to show unlit matches in background.
