Conceptual video clip

Yesterday we were in the studio creating some conceptual still life images centering around the theme of light, and decided to make a video clip of one of the concepts, the idea of how one thing -- an idea, disease, rumor, good deed, whatever -- can quickly spread through an entire community, This HD video was taken with a Nikon D750 and 85mm tilt/shift macro lens. One tungsten spot light was used, its light adjusted to balance the light from the flames.

For this still shot I switched to a single Nikon 910 flash unit to light the match stick and freeze the action. Regular studio strobes do not have a duration of flash that is fast enough to stop really fast moving action.
