A Colourful flame-lick…

Last weekend while visiting my little brother, me made ourselves a nice fire to heat up a bit… I had fun playing with my camera (as one always does with flames/fires…. what is it about flames??) 😉

I had some fun editing this shot, but the biggest change was when I played around with the white balance… Who knew it would make such a big difference?? I changed my balance from ‘as shot’ to ‘tungsten’ & the effect was quite dramatic!!! I loved it!! 😀

Tungsten balance…

As shot…

Which do you prefer?? Have you played around with your white balance yet?? So excited about the endless possibilities that this creates!! 😀 **

    Very, very cool. Both have their own beauty, however I do think the tungsten lighting makes it surreal. They say the blue part of the flame is the hottest part, if true, that would make that shot blazing!

    Since I am the original drama queen of my generation, I couldn’t resist the first one. I like the second too. Depends on what you want. Really interesting photographs.
