playing with fire

Sitting by the fire and just watching the log burns was one of the highlight if not THE only highlight of camping at night time. Sitting with camera in my hand, staring at the fire got a bit more interesting. Rarely have we had a chance to seee open fire like this in the city, so I was really interested to learn how to take photos of fire. These two images were taken on a different day, and using a different speed because I was just want to experiment.

ISO:1000 Aperture: f/8 Shutter speed: 1/8 Lens: AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G

ISO: 1250 Aperture: f/5 Shutter speed: 1/400 Lens: AF-S DX VR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED

A typical newbie in photography I was very happy looking at the result. The orange hairthin lines dancing up looked so pretty and playful even, the effect resulted by my son poking at burning wood and me catching what’s happening to the fire with a really slow shutter speed.

I love the second image too. It took me back to the time when I was actually sitting down in front of that fire, thinking how pretty it was. This image was taken with a lot faster shutter speed than the one before.

I love them both because each depicts different feel and emotions to me.
