I love taking pictures of fire because you can never get the same shot!

Especially when you vary the settings. These two (above) have different aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings. You can see in the first one, the shutter speed is very slow. I didn't have a tripod, so I held it as still as I possibly could and it came out. If I had my tripod with me at that time, I would have experimented more with slow shutter speeds. Next time.

I like to experiment and try to push the limits on my knowledge and camera. Speaking of experimenting, I am very excited about some things coming from Amazon to my home in the next couple of days. For my recent birthday, some of my family gave me cash as a gift and I was able to purchase some lighting equipment! It's just the basics, but I'm super excited to play with it all soon.

Unfortunately, I didn't have enough money to buy everything I wanted, but I was looking online and there are many DIY projects that I can try out (i.e. DIY Softboxes). If I try it out, I'll let you know how it goes!
