Before you even decide to snap one photo you must make sure your camera is properly set up. To do this you must first adjust the shooting mode on your camera. After you have adjusted your camera to the proper shooting mode turn off the flash as it is not needed when photographing images of fire.
After you have adjusted the cameras shooting mode and turned the flash off you need to then
go out and practice with your cameras settings. As the saying goes practice makes perfect and that goes for photography as well, especially when it comes to photographing fire as it can be tedious. Moreover,in order to become the best photographer and come out with the best pictures you should be taking non stop shots and play around with exposure and long exposure.
After you have had gotten the settings adjusted, set it on the best mode for capturing fire and turned off the flash you should adjust the cameras shutter speed to longer than before. By lengthening the speed
you will allow the shutter to stay open longer so a fair amount of more light can be allowed in thus capture the flame in its movement as well as presenting a blurry, more interesting effect. A more memorable effect even perhaps.
In the final steps to adjusting your camera you must decide whether or not to choose a high ISO setting or a low. Most professionals will recommend using the high ISO setting as it will allow the cameraman to perfectly capture the flames. Another suggestion pertaining to a high ISO setting is to turn said setting to at least 1600 so as to make the image appear altogether more fluid. Now as for the lower of the setting it can also be used, unlike with the higher setting, without the use of a tripod.
Photography of any subject can be difficult at first and fire is in itself all the more work but with much practice you can learn to capture a moment of time within the flames of a photo.
