Had some fire performer mates doing a rehearsal tonight, and I used the opportunity to try out some various techniques to get some interesting pics (lighting, off-camera flash, long exposures, rear curtain sync etc) and got some interesting stuff.

Here's one (it's a shame the small pics lose detail because the detail when you get in close to the fire is amazing...)

It's a shame with cheap triggers you can't do rear-curtain sync with off-camera flash - I'd need at least a second slave flash to be able to do this.

Still, it was an interesting learning experience for when we try and get some pictures for real...

Masked - as they do the show in full costume, they need to rehearse with the masks to get used to the reduced vision...

It's really quite something to experience when it's done well...
