    fire burning

    cane1.jpg

    This is one of 50 images i captured last night at a local cane farm. The flames were jumping/soaring so brightly that the sensor in the camera could hardly keep up. In the end i set iso at 3200 5.6 and 1/30 and just went for it. This is the hardest project i have undertaken to date, thoroughly? satisfied with the results. Enjoy.

    I am just wondering why you didn`t just spot meter on the flames at an iso of maybe 200-400 and get a faster shutter speed thereby making the tractor etc much sharper in silhouette. Just my idea on things... I like what you have achieved anyway.

    I think it's cool. Fire is not sharp, it's constantly moving & Changing, never static.

    Having been put on the end of a drip torch or 2 in my time, I know just how hot that tractor would have been too!

    Using the drip torch is even hotter. You have to virtually run to keep ahead of the flames. 4 and 5 metre flames less then 2-3 meters behind you and catching up.

    Certainly lets you know youre alive!!
