2009 Challenge, Day 21: FIRE

"Fire Butterfly", by Jeff Kubina

Today’s theme for the 2009 Challenge is FIRE.

Photographing fire can be fun, but dangerous. Make sure you’re careful out there! You can be the citizen-journalist, and respond to a local fire related emergency. Capturing an incident like this can even sometimes get you in the local paper. Just make sure it’s because you took the best photo, not because you got too close.

If you can’t find the time or the opportunity to catch something huge and dramatic, just simply spend some time shooting a candle.

Once you’re ready to submit your work to Flickr, you’ve got to do two important things. First, make sure you tag your photos correctly; “2009challenge″. Also, if you haven’t already, join the PhotoChallenge group on Flickr. Then, submit each day’s photo to the group’s pool.

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
