Another shot of the same fire just a little further down...
Sorry everyone I'm trying to improve my technique and I would really appreciate some feedback. :blushing:
decrease ISO, a part of photo has burned..
Yeah, I have been shooting with ISO 1600 setting when I'm shooting at night. I'll back it down.
The biggest problem I have with this photo is that you can't see where the flame is coming from. It just makes for a rather boring picture of some random top of a fire. There's just a hint of some grass that makes me want to see the source of the fire even more. Needs better composition.
I originally had this as a 3 part series in my mind. It started with the first shot title Sparks and ended with the final shot titled Fire it Up! I'll post that one today so you can see the "source" of the fire. Personally the fire was the last thing on my mind when I was shooting these. I was very focused on the sparks which is why they were the first in the series of shots.
Bottom line is that this is just an on-the-floor type trash can shot. Fireworks and fires are the most difficult type of photography so if you are a beginner, you should be starting in a vastly simpler area.
If you are keen on fireworks and fires you should do your homework and read up on that area of photography before you begin experimenting. You have a considerable amount to learn before even beginning to shoot.
