We heat the house with a wood burner. The wood was bought and stacked some time ago, but today's shot of the firewood seemed appropriate as a reminder of the changing seasons.
The wood has a lovely "warm" colouration to it and I wanted this to be seen in the final shot. I used an incandescent bulb to illuminate the firewood and overexposed by one stop to make the scene just a little brighter. I tried a speedlight, but the light from this just seemed too harsh. The more mellow incandescent
bulb seemed more pleasing to me. Let me know what you think.
Tripod mounted camera, 50mm lens, f8, 2.5 seconds, ISO 200 and auto white balance.
