The aim was to try some long exposure shots, to capture the incredible arcing blasts from Yasur's vents. It turns out that's a reasonable challenge when you don't have a tripod and the entire ashen mound you're sitting on regularly shudders with bubbling molten fury.
I wound up sitting with my legs pulled up, and the camera balanced on my knees. I didn't have much luck until I started using shutter priority mode, and set it to 3 seconds. The best shots I got were by accident, or extremely good luck.
|I suspect this is actually not very good technically, |
but hey, I like the squiggles.
I haven't made any adjustments to these pictures (mostly because I still don't really know how. Anyone want to teach me how to retouch photographs?).
