Fire! Explosions! Those things look great on screen.
But if you want to maximize the effect, shoot them at night or in the dark – that way your explosion/fire won’t be competing with that great big ball of burning gas we call the Sun.
It’s not that you can’t shoot during the day, but just keep in mind that it’ll be more impressive at night/in the dark (more contrast).
Also, remember that fire goes up, and you want to make sure you capture that.
NOTE: Make sure you have a certified technician (like our friend Moe) if you’re planning on doing explosions, and make sure you have plenty of safety measures. Safety above all.
Also, read our more in-depth article on shooting fire and explosions.
