23. Fire Inside

I tried to keep eyes sharp and it was not easy. It was lit from above with a torch.

Some other shots:

I was appearing a little bit congested so I added some more black background in post-processing.

  1. I love what you did with this shoot. Your decision to go monochrome is spot on and the exposure and contrast work quite well together with the title you’ve given the image.

    I’m not sure I agree with your assessment in calling the other shots “failed” because they are each lovely in their own way–maybe they aren’t so much “failed” as “succeeding in a way you were not looking for”? The first one you have listed (with the smoke going off to the side) is really dynamic!

    Excellent work! Looking forward to seeing more.

  2. I agree with your statement – “maybe they aren’t so much “failed” as “succeeding in a way you were not looking for”. I think I should change it to ‘Some other shots’ or something like this. Thanks for such a detailed critique. Keep looking 🙂

  3. I also agree with the previous commenter. I don’t think they were failures by any means. I liked them all in a different way. Great post!
