For months now Josh has been talking to me about the fire dancers that practice on Tuesdays at Sundance. To make matters worse, one of the women who works at the Firehouse Kitchen (next to my gallery) is one of the fire dancers…….
Clearly, I had to go see for myself. I mean, everywhere I turn I’m hearing about the Tuesday night practices…….
So, I finally broke down, took a nap, and prepared myself to stay up later than usual. A night owl I am not. Of course, tomorrow’s full moon will probably find me awake in the Granite Dells with a tripod, a camera, and a cable release…… 🙂
As you can see, the fire dancers / twirlers are pretty cool. The 5D Mark II did a pretty good job. No flash, high ISO, and ever changing settings for the different light levels. Fire breather, super fast shutter speed. Twirlers….slower speed, somewhat wide apeture. Lots of changes for the shoot. I’m still sorting through what worked.
Of course, I thought you might like to see a few unedited images. I’ve got a lot of sorting to do, on top of the sorting I’m already doing!
