At more and more events, fire performers are popping up at concerts, street fairs, and holiday events. You may have seen photos in other photographer’s portfolios and wondered how they got that shot. Catching the Fire explains the techniques for getting the best photographs out of a fire performance. No matter your skill level, this book will teach you to see the performance in a new way and capture it.


Daily Photo – So I decided to fight this robot

I was trying to get out of Tokyo without fighting a robot, but, somehow, I knew that I would never be that lucky.

That would be a good start to a story, eh? I’ll tell you the rest of the story some time… btw, who can tell us which robot this is?
