Flame Silhouette by Claire Elford

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

I took this photo while on work experience. I was lucky enough to watch the Police doing Anti-Riot training, which included running through fire!

I got some great shots, but this is the best, as I love the silhouette. You think it’s just a fire, but then see the people’s feet. It’s weird!

Edited to make the black stand out more.
