SHOOTING FIRE ONE ON ONE

PREVIOUS / NEXT

VIETNAM by KRISS on 10 february 2017

When we arrived at the beach tonight, our diner was starting their BBQ like every night and I was for once paying more attention to it than my margarita.
It was a good opportunity to take a photograph of the flame with just some of the background as silouhettes.
This is how I did it :

I used an 85mm lens because it was what I had on my camera at the time, I wouldn’t use any wide angle to shoot fire because you might not realise you’re getting too close to the fire before it’s too late.
And if cameras don’t like water, they don’t like fire either.
In manual mode, I constructed the photograph around the shutter speed so that I would get more of the flame, some of its movement and it would actually be the main subject of the photograph.
1/200 was what gave me best results but you’re welcome to fool around.
I wanted a very smooth photograph and opened at f1.6.
I then simply adjusted my ISO so that my light meter would gave me a negative reading (to get dark skies behind).

And that’s it, this is how I shot the following images of a bbq fire on the beach in Vietnam.
