29/52 --- I Set Fire To The Rain? [Elements]

Week 29 of the VOTogs "52 Selfies" challenge saw using using “Elements.”

 

So far behind. Soooooooooooo far behind. But I wanted to do this photo.

 

This has been an image in my mind for quite some time. When I made the theme Elements, I knew that this was the image I wanted to achieve.

 

It involved me getting wet, muddy, and slightly toasty on a cold, windy winter’s night. Wee!

 

I play with fire a lot. All necessary safety precautions were taken, including having hoses, buckets and fire extinguishers at the ready. Do not try this at home…

Set up:

 

Camera EXIF: Canon 5DMkIII with Canon 85mm f/1.8. At 85mm, 1/125@f/2.2, ISO100.

 

Strobist info:

Yongnuo 460II at 1/32 power bare behind subject (right of frame) to provide rim / help illuminate rain (should have had one behind left-of-frame, too; additional rain added in post…). Lumopro LP180 at 1/32 into 32” silver umbrella in front of subject (to left of frame) to light subject.
