“Inferno” – Technical Details With Lauri

By Lauri L. on January 17th 2013

Today we will be discussing about the technical side (location scouting, lens choice, camera settings etc.) of my latest photoshoot. If you have any questions, or would like to know more about this photoshoot, please leave a comment below, and I’ll try to answer all of them as well as I can.

About a week ago me and Konsta Linkola, a good friend of mine and a fellow photographer, got together and organised this exciting photoshoot in an old abandoned factory in Ohkola, Finland. Konsta’s friend Riku also gracefully took the time to accompany us during this photoshoot and he shot some amazing behind-the-scenes footage, which you can see in my previous article that I published last Tuesday.

Konsta knows how to blow fire and we wanted to utilise this skill of his and create some amazing photographs with fire. Photographing fire is very interesting, and pretty challenging, as in order to preserve the texture of fire, one must find the perfect balance between using a fast shutter speed, and still allowing enough ambient light to enter the camera. Learn how we did it, by checking out the video:
