Location: Kinloch, Lake Wakatipu, New Zealand
Date: 2011

Camera: Nikon D700
Focal Length: 35mm
Aperture: f/2
ISO/Film: 200
Shutter Speed: 30 sec

Note: Bhum took this photo of a group of people around a campfire at Lake Wakatipu in New Zealand. The orange bright light really stands out against the blue night sky. The landscape, stars and mountains really add another dimension to the photo. Very nice capture!

Tip: The campfire has a “burning” bright illumnination effect due to the shutter speed setting of 30 seconds. The fire has “tails” or trace marks burning through the air because of this longer shutter speed. The longer exposure also allowed for the night sky to be so vibrant and properly exposed.
