Here's a friend of mine doing what he does best, playing with fire :P

I recommend that you view the larger sizes of these pictures.

As always, comments and feedback are appreciated!

Quentin, btw I just realised the contrast with my latest raindrop thread

Fascinating!
Any tips about how to capture the flames best?

Well here are the relevant informations about the last three shots, that were taken in shutter priority (1/10 allows you to get enough movement and delicate lines. Shoot too slow, the flame will become a giant white blur with a little yellow border, in other words ugly^^)

5. shutter:1/10
aperture: f11
@112mm
ISO: 100

6.1/10
f29
@48mm

7.1/10
f36
@95mm

And of course it's always nice to have someone that knows how to handle fire when capturing such shots. :wink:
The built in flash is handy to capture the juggler's moves (on my other shots) but it "kills" the flames and makes them look very small and not so dangerous.
