Writing with Wedding Sparklers

    I ran across a cute blog the other day -  and it got me thinking - maybe people use sparklers for things other than weddings.

See for yourself.  There are all kinds of things people do with wedding sparklers instead of using them at weddings!   Shop Our Sparklers Now!   This blog consists of a cute girl, her dad (who has a lifelong dream of writing with sparklers) and a bunch of friends!  The College Prepster - TCP - you will love this blog and the cute daily posts.  She suggests using safety sparklers which is really  36 inch sparklers or 20 inch sparklers.  They have long handles so you will not have to worry.

[caption id="attachment_350" align="aligncenter" width="540"] Studio Tran Photography[/caption] [caption id="attachment_351" align="aligncenter" width="540"] Studio Tran Photography[/caption] I am going to paste the information below, but please make sure to visit her blog here. Sparkler pictures are fun and magical. I mean who doesn't love sparklers? They have become more and more popular at weddings as an "exit" where the bride and groom run through. Ive received a lot of emails and facebook messages asking if I would share how I took the sparkler pictures I have been posting so I thought I would share some tips and tricks. I'm sure there are many different ways you can do this, but this is what I have found works the best. You will need at least 2 off camera flashes on stands, a tripod, camera, wireless remotes, sparklers and someone to take the picture (assistant, friend of couple). I put my flashes on manual at 1/2 and point them directly at the couple. Since this is a long exposure picture you will need the off camera flash to basically "freeze" the couple and their movement. I like the bride to hold the sparkler and then I light...
