a return to innocence

Growing up, I was exposed to a life of camping and traveling.  Family vacations took me all across America.  I remember sitting around countless campfires roasting marshmallows and sharing stories.

So this week while visiting family I jumped on the opportunity to have a camp fire, sit out roasting marshmallows all while sitting under a beautifully clear night.  I grabbed my tripod and headed out.

Taking pictures at night can pose many challenges, getting stable non-blurry shots, getting exposure and lighting right and keeping your focus sharp in situations where you must use manual focus.  But challenges like this are what pushes us as photographers to become better.
