Steel wool (wire wool) photography is a light painting technique that calls for lighting a piece of steel wool on fire and capturing the glow of the steel wool as it is moved around and captured using a slow shutter speed. Show me your long exposure photographs of moments where this technique has been used. Please do not enter photos of light painting using light sources other than steel wool. Please note that I will not judge photos with personal details like name, handwriting or logos on them.

How it works

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.

Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
