I would like to capture the flame out of a pistol being fired by a friend. For dramatic effect, I want to shoot at dusk. This will be low-tech, so timing will be the largest challenge.
I am thinking of a wide aperture, low ISO, slow shutter (like 1/2 second), and an exposure that, without the flame or flash would be quite dark, but not completely black. Maybe a touch of flash if the flame does not adequately light the subject, but I'd rather not. Maybe back-lit?
Any thoughts? Any experience? Any examples?
