Day 294 - Playing with fire

f8 at 4 seconds. That's what it took to get this photograph of the first fire of the fall season at our house. I tried the shot at 15 seconds, to see what the difference would be, but all the extended shutter speed did was make the flames more fluid, less crisp. And it lightened up the other details a little too much, in my opinion.

Low light photography interests me greatly but I'm not sure the Olympus has what it takes to explore the subject as far as I want. Its aperture range is too narrow (f3.4 to f8) to provide the flexibility I would want. Oh well. I'll push it to its limits and see how it does.
