Alan Teitel, an award-winning cinematographer and founder of UltraSlo Epic Slow Motion, demonstrates what a burning match looks like when it’s filmed at 4,000 frames per second.
As you can see this is an extremely tight shot. There was over 2000 watts of light within 4 inches (10 CM) of the match with mirrors and reflectors too.
