Before you get started: We're still accepting links for this week's Thematic Photographic challenge. Got a light-themed photo? Click here to give it a shot. Now, on with the show...Fire is one of the most difficult things to shoot properly. It moves quickly. Its rapidly and unpredictably cycling levels of light make exposure a challenge. It's damn hot, which forces you to stand back and use longer focal lengths - which reduces depth of field and further worsens your focusing precision. I could go on, but you get the picture: It sucks to shoot this stuff.
Which is why we try in the first place, though. Because you learn more from a serious challenge than you do from an easier scenario. Steeper hills are more fun to climb, after all.
Your turn: Please give this photo an appropriate caption. As always, be as creative as you wish, and feel free to submit as many captions as you can handle. Click on the Comments link below and have at it. Not sure how Caption This works? Click here for instructions.
About last week's plane photo: I now view this photo with a bit of irony, as I take off for the other side of the continent early tomorrow morning. I'll be in San Francisco for a major tech vendor's global product launch (more on that later this week.) Then on Tuesday, I head back to the airport and fly back home. I won't be there long enough to adjust to the time change. But I'll bring my camera and will try to power-shoot for the couple of hours that I'll have to walk the streets.
This week's honorable menschens go to:
- Barb: "The sky's the limit."
- Jacie: "Err .. can we get a refund on the skywriting... that doesn't look anything like 'Happy Birthday'!"
- Bob-kat: "Are we nearly there yet?"
- BreadBox: "Parallel lines meet at infinity."
- Sister AE: "Happy contrails to you!"
