So, I tried a bunch of things. Full on flash, flash dialed down, strictly ambient.

I just got tired of strobing everyone constantly, even at 1/32 power. So I took the strobe off and worked on M, ISO 3200. The fire would flare up and give off decent light, or it would die down just as someone would be posing for me. Outside the fire area it was pitch black. And snowing!

I don't drink whiskey but there was a fair amount of that last night. I worked on all the worthy pics in LR4, these are just a few. Good times. Oh, not enough snow for topless sledding.

3, 4 and 5 have some really good atmosphere. no obvious flash (if it was used at all).. N o3 I really like for the effect for a different rreason. the photo has a high contrast and bold mono colour tone.  I wish I had taken it!

well done..

There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness.' :'!':
