May 29, 2010, Memorial Weekend Campfire

For our family part of the Memorial Weekend tradition is gatherings at my Uncle's Pond in Summerhill, NY.

I waited much of the day to have the opportunity to take photographs at the campfire.  The subject presented himself perfectly with a Tom Sawyer type of look.  No props were needed.

Photo details: Exposure time 1/50 sec, Aperture f/1.8, ISO 1600, Focal Length 50 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 82mm, Lens Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, handheld.

I LOVE campfires. We had one a few weekends ago that had a little bit of copper in it and the flames turned green. :)

Love how the sepia gives this such an "old fashioned" feel to it.

Great image, couldn't tell it was a hand held image with that low of lighting. Well done.
