These guys peform at 10pm when its dark and for various reasons I hadn’t made it down there until tonite. I got there a bit early and it was PACKED with people already but managed to find a spot to set up tripod. I decided to kneel down which got me nice intimate angles but my legs went to sleep on me kneeling on the bricks 😦
I wanted to get some swirly fire images but I quickly got frustrated as it was easy to get those (just set the shutter speed to a longer time) but I wasn’t getting the people in focus.
So I changed tack and went for the performers when they momentarily held a pose and tried to get sharp images of them. I was surprised, I got more keepers than I expected……
There are more pix up on my FLICKR page
The three you posted here are great! And that was a bit of luck/magic for the middle picture. Everything worked out very well for you on that one.
I guess I’ll have to take a trip over to Flickr now…
Thankyou! I was really happy that I got as many nice images as I did, cos I had NO idea what I was doing, and was essentially tweaking the settings every third shot or so until I decided what options seemed to be working.
These are awesome!
