A fire and friends are all you need for a great evening, but some hot cinnamon tea and bourbon doesn’t hurt. I wanted to capture the feeling of camping out under the stars with a fire, but the vast difference in light intensity between the fire and the stars made this image impossible to create in camera. The solution is to merge two exposures, one for the fire in the foreground, and one for the stars in the sky.
