In India, Lohri, Bihu and Holika Dahan provide a good occasion to go for the fire-flame photography. I grabbed the opportunity on January 13, Lohri night, to try my hands on fire flame photography.
WITH A few tips one can use fire flames of different sizes and shapes to give artistic photographs. Small flames to raging infernos in dark situations present great opportunities to exercise the creative side of photography. Camp fires and bonfires also are also good occasions to try ones hand at fire lame photography.
We know that the fire shapes and forms are never static. With little practice and experimentation, one can create splendid photographs of flames that convey the abstractness, dance, power, and subtlety comes from the flame.
Keep the flash off and adjust the shutter speed figured out, play around a little by lightly blowing on the flame and attempting to capture its dance.
Experimentation is the key element in fire flame photography. To create interesting effects when photographing fire, you can set a longer shutter speed to create a blurred effect which can capture the movement of the flame.
Also, try different ISO settings and shutter speeds to capture interesting pictures of the shapes and movements of the flame. For good fire flame photography, one needs to practice a bit in order to improve skills.
