Photo Contest: Fire
(Click here for official contest page)
Fire is beautiful, fierce, and warm; the word itself invokes feelings of passion, excitement and awe. It devours, warms purifies and commands respect. It is in our sun. It is in our earth. It is in our hearts. Capture the fire around you and send us your shot. The picture we like the best will win a Really Right Stuff TVC-33 Tripod!
Physically and metaphorically, fire is an inspiring subject to capture. We encourage creativity and imagination when choosing your fiery subject. Physical fires are an obvious choice and can be very captivating; the less obvious would be sunsets that set the entire sky on fire, stars – giant fireballs suspended in space, or even fall colors that ignite a tree or forest ablaze. Use your imagination or be literal, but have fun as you capture the spirit of this contest.
Try experimenting with several different techniques for a variety of effects. For example, long exposure shots can produce captivating light trails and using filters might help achieve the effect you are looking for if the subject or ambient light is too bright. For more inspiration, check out the pictures below.
