The Great List of Things My Husband Has Set on Fire is long and varied. This door is low on the list in terms of excitement, but hey. Not every day can be magical and full of sparks. The door was an old bedroom door that was recently replaced.
 
Also, I feel the need to point out that the brown stuff on the door is oil and gas. Otherwise y’all might think I never clean anything and that would cause me great pain. 

One of the perks of owning a DSLR camera is being able to control all the settings, shutter speed being one of them. Having control over the shutter speed helps capture motion, either fast or blurred, and also controls how much light enters the camera. (Fast shutter = motion is frozen, but less light enters the camera. Slow shutter = motion is blurred, more light enters because the shutter is open longer.)
So. The picture below was taken with a fairly fast shutter (1/320), freezing the flames. PRETTY. (In a deadly, dangerous sort of way, but still.)

In this picture, however, I slowed the shutter speed (1/20) and now it looks like a 4-million degree FLAMING HELL FIRE. 

See. That was fun!

Over and out.

One thought on “Fun With Fire (And Shutter Speed)”

  1. Looks like you are having fun with your new camera. My favorite is the 2nd to last. Notice how even the surrounding snow reflects the fire?
