I really like shooting with light. That sounds kind of funny; what I mean is that I like shooting things that emit light in order to create interesting pictures. I like lens flare and sunlight when it creates interesting lines and shapes and shadows.
This picture takes a slightly different take on light. Obviously it’s a fire, which emits it’s own light. I love the warm, intense colors it creates against the black of the night around it. I like the variations between the dark in the wood and the red of the shadow on the ground. Overall I just think it’s a very effective image.
