- The blue flame of butane torch lighter. A butane torch can reach temperatures of up to 2000 °F (1100 °C). Canon 7D, 1/40 sec @ f/5.6, ISO 1600, 100mm macro, lighter in my left hand, camera in the right.
- The flame from a Tiki Torch at the cookout and pool party yesterday at Brian and Kristal's house in Suffolk Virginia. The pool was small but tons of fun with my grandson Robert. Nothing like a kid and a pool. Canon 7D, 1/500 @ f5.6, ISO 400, 100mm macro.
I was trying to get a macro photograph of a match at the instant of ignition. I got a few nice shots, but it is really hard to get the exposure just right because the match burns so intensely during that first brief moment and each match lights a little bit differently. After looking at the photos, I actually liked this shot best, just after the flame was blown out. What do you think? Canon Rebel XTi, 1/160 sec @ f/5.6. ISO 200, 50mm macro lens.
Flame is always fascinating. This red flame comes from an old fashion oil lamp. I see a blue flame coming in a future post. Canon 40D ISO 200, f/11 at 1/100s using a Canon 85mm f/1.8 with the Canon Life-Size converter.
