I took some photos for my friend Sara the other day to promote her fire dancing. She is amazing. I was trying a new technique where I used a gelled flash to get more of her face lit up. Shooting fire dancers is a little on the difficult side since they are always moving and the light source is constantly changing so often the dancers faces aren’t as exposed as the fire. If you use straight flash you lose the effect of the fire so that’s where the gel came into play. I’m pretty pleased with the way they came out.
