The Secrets of Shooting Red Hot Fire Photos
There are few things in this world that capture the imagination like fire can. We all know that fire is dangerous and sometimes destructive. However, you also have to admit that flames can be mesmerizing and even beautiful too. One look at a good close up photograph of fire can be enough to convince any photographer that fire can make for a very nice photography subject.
But how do you take photos of flames/fire? It’s not as simple as you might think. We wanted to make sure that you learned the secrets of taking fire photographs the right way, so we found this helpful video tutorial. All you macro photographers need to watch this one, and you’ll be on your way to snapping some pretty hot photos of flames in the very near future…
We cannot stress enough how important it is to be safe when you are working with fire. While most adults feel confident in their ability to deal with flames in a controlled situation, every photographer should take extra precautions to avoid any fire-related mishaps or tragedies in the studio. It’s not worth putting your property or life on the line just to get a nice fire photograph, so please exercise extreme caution when you take fire photographs.
One thing you should avoid, as was pointed out in this video, is the practice of squirting lighter fluid directly onto an open flame. You saw this being done in the video, but it is not something that anyone should attempt. It is much safer to put the lighter fluid down on the glass and then to ignite it.
