Night Time Fire Fun

On the Sunday of the Labour Day weekend, Mr. Bean and I took a whirlwind 24 hour backpacking trip. We had a fire (obviously) and after playing with our poking stick, I decided to break out my camera and have a bit of fun.

These photos are testament that you don’t always need a tripod to take night photos/self portraits. I just propped my camera on the bench of the picnic table and used the strap to adjust the height of the lens. I recommend using a fairly long delay on your self timer (if you’re like me and don’t have a remote) as it’s dark and you stumble around a bit more! The settings I used were: ISO 200, f/10, 15 sec exposure.

Apparently waving around a stick that isn’t lit well will blow out as you wave it around in the shape of a heart. Who would have thought?

These photos are my submission for this week’s Night themed Shoot and Edit. You can see other Straight Out Of the Camera shots over at Jill’s blog! I also linked in to Selfie Saturdays!
