Fire!   There are choices to make when photographing fire…. is the fire itself the main subject?  Or possibly just a part of the photo, where fire is secondary and there is a completely different main subject?   Is the fire the primary light source; or do you have to illuminate a secondary subject with other light?

I decided to use fire as an accent to my subject, instead of fire itself being the focus.  Just one element of a larger scene.  I’ve incorporated a food-story to my “fire” challenge.  I put some steak and vegetable skewers together, purposefully selecting vibrant yellow, green and red veggies along with big chunks of steak; and my husband started grilling them for me while I stood on a stool and got some shots.    I shot this during the daylight in order to give the food some natural light, balancing the extreme brightness of the flames.

You hungry yet??


Thanks for stopping by my photo blog!
