As I mentioned in a previous post, Winter and I don’t get along. As soon as the temperature dips below 70°F, I am an unhappy camper. So, I have to find things that make me feel warm and cozy. Maybe that’s why I love taking pictures of fire. During the summer, whenever someone is having a camp fire, you will find me with my camera, getting as close as I can without getting singed. Then, in the dead of winter, when other people have the fire channel playing on their satellite, I just open up ACDSee (fabulous organizational software that I use to categorize my photos by the way) and have the program search for all my fire pictures. Then I sit basking in the glow of the flames while rubbing my hands together in front of the screen.
No, all kidding aside, I do really enjoy taking pictures of fire and flames. The colours, patterns, and textures are amazing, and I find them very relaxing. I also find fire a challenge because it’s not always easy to get a good shot, especially since most of the time I am photographing outside in the dark.
