About the Image(s)

I've titled this "Low Drop". I heard about a brush fire not too far from where I live, so I headed over. This was taken with a Nikon D850 and a Nikon 200-500 f/5.6 FL-ED lens. I used 1/1250 sec @ f/8 at ISO 160, lens zoomed to 360mm. I wanted to include some of the flame to help tell the story. It's always a battle with the shutter speed. I want it high enough so I don't get any blur from moving the heavy lens, but I want to try to get some blur in the rotors of the helicopter. Being a photojournalistic image, I didn't do a ton in post. A little bit of adjustment to open up the shadows through the harsh sunlight and haze and some dust spot removal.

I hope everyone had a safe holiday.
