More fire in the eyes

June - 2007

Here's another shot of Dave with his eyes on fire. Not one of the picks, but it shows the fire even higher. I should mention that I shot this on IR film. I was using a strobe and everything in terms of the exposure was a complete guess. I'm pretty sure I had never shot infrared with a strobe before and I sure hadn't shot fire before. The negs are pretty dense. I'd say over exposed by about two stops. Three on some frames. If I had missed that far in my guessing with digital it would not have been recoverable. Of course, when you get virtually instant feedback with a histogram, it only would have taken one or two test shots to dial in the exposure. Fire Eyes 2
