I have to admit that sometimes you get really lucky when you are taking pictures. You get lucky when everything just seems to come out right, and I had such an experience with the Ignition Fire Troupe over at Seacompression 2012 this weekend. There is nothing cooler (well ok, maybe there are things that are cooler than this) than night time fire breathing. There are always interesting things going on in Seattle, and the Seacompression show was just one of the cooler things that happened along the way. These are some pictures of the Ignition Fire Troupe that was doing the fire breathing or fire eating routine at the show. The full Flickr galleries are here – but hope you enjoy these cleaned and edited pictures.
I was asked by a lot of people what my camera settings were for this shoot, so I’ll share:
Anywhere between 1/100 to 1/125 second on the shutter
Some of the fire effects did not come out the way I was hoping for, some came out way beyond what I was hoping to get. As always with any advice, your mileage will vary, but if you get the chance to do some fire eating shows, give it a spin, see what you come up with.
