Thanks all -- it's been over 18 months since my last ribbon and it's always fun and an honor to land on the front page. Just not much time to play on DPC although I miss the funhouse! I'm more of a lurker now, checking in during the witching hours to see what is new in DPC world.

*Simple two speedlight setup, camera left with a blue gel to pop the smoke.
*Hold lighter to match, jerk away quickly and hope to catch the initial burst.
* Return 100/2.8 to its rightful owner. :(
* Go shopping for my own 100/2.8!

Nicely done. That's some wonderful detail in the match head, the fire, and the smoke. Especially under basic editing.
