In this back yard barbecue scene shot by Jay P. Morgan “The Slanted Lens”, we see everything go up in flames. His goal was to shoot both video and stills that the restaurant will use for advertising purposes. Creating fire is not easy and must be done with complete caution; this is just a little taste on how to make fire. It’s somewhat easy to shoot video and stills at once; the trick is to light up burn bars at different times. The photos and videos may look simple, but as you can see, a lot of work goes into making the final products.
