2013 Challenge, Week 29: FIRE

“Firestarter” by travelingroths

The theme for this week can be interpreted in many ways. You could take the opportunity to make an image of the men and women who fight fires, or of a fire truck racing down the street.

Since fire is an excellent light source, you could also make images using just the light of a candle, or just the light of a campfire.

Or try some long exposure shots to capture fire in motion:

2009 Challenge, Day 21: FIRE

"Fire Butterfly", by Jeff Kubina

Today’s theme for the 2009 Challenge is FIRE.

Photographing fire can be fun, but dangerous. Make sure you’re careful out there! You can be the citizen-journalist, and respond to a local fire related emergency. Capturing an incident like this can even sometimes get you in the local paper. Just make sure it’s because you took the best photo, not because you got too close.

If you can’t find the time or the opportunity to catch something huge and dramatic, just simply spend some time shooting a candle.

Once you’re ready to submit your work to Flickr, you’ve got to do two important things. First, make sure you tag your photos correctly; “2009challenge″. Also, if you haven’t already, join the PhotoChallenge group on Flickr. Then, submit each day’s photo to the group’s pool.
