Fun with Fire

Well, good news!

Last night was my first photo session post night classes. Truthfully, it took a while to motivate myself to get started, but once I did I got very excited.

You see, my wonderful in laws picked up a tripod for me at a garage sale and last night I finally got a chance to play with it and oh what fun I had! These photos - Fun with Fire - were all taken with a shutter speed of 30 seconds. I took the photos in complete darkness, the only light was the flame from my lighter. Below you will see the results.

This isn't fun with fire, but look how well she stayed still for the slow shutter speed!

I wanted to put this one up, because I really like the me on the left. Because I placed the flame behind my body I look like a shadow... good to note - I'll have to play with this more - but not until my thumbs heal from all that flicking.

This one I did the most photoshoping. I brought the light down really low. I like the effect that it made. Perhaps it is something I should consider doing for the other ones as well.
