    I have too much fun with fire.

    Simply stated, I have too much fun with fire. I always have since I was a kid. Any input on these photos is much appreciated. Im still a beginner and am very open to critique.



    I took a candle and had a friend spray it with spray paint. Although I do not recommend doing this, it is so much fun.





    Thanks for looking!

    These are pretty good, imo. Fire is fairly difficult, especially when using lower-end cameras.

    There is a little bleaching in the hottest parts of the flames here, but that's generally the case with digital cameras

    unless you have a really good (and really expensive) DSLR.

    The CCDs (or c-mos sensors, if you prefer) generally aren't balanced properly, and usually have some stupid filter over them, which is why we so often get bleaching with digital cameras

    By comparison, film SLRs can quite easily resolve the disc of the Sun.

    I have a Sigma SD14 DSLR, but it isn't quite up to fire (or contre-jour) pictures

    Anyway, where your flames aren't bleaching, there is some really great detail.

    I likes 'em

    Oh, and please be careful out there, eh ?

    Don't set yerself on fire !!

    Aerosols can be pretty explosive, so please also be careful not to blow your body parts off !!

    I agree that parts of the photos are bleached. But I had alot of fun doing this and the detailed parts made it worth sharing for me. Thanks for the feedback.

    You're welcome to the feedback, Malice

    Also, I was talking partial pants : apparently CCDs (Charge-Coupled Devices) are not the same as cmos sensors.

    DOH !

    (And sometimes my responses to things are somewhat slow. I never manage to notice everything in the forum...)

    Nice photo's, could be a dragon breathing fire (compliment). Be careful with aerosal cans, though it is fun. I did it once and only once, the fear factor got to me.
