Always Expect the Unexpected ...


At the Global Winter Wonderland I expected to capture lots of holiday images - Santa, Christmas trees, red and green lights, people bundled up for a chilly Sacramento night. What I never imagined was a barely clothed man playing with fire in an entertaining and somewhat dangerous way. Of all the images I shot that night these of the Hawaiian Fire Dancer turned out to be the only ones of value.

For those who like to read the box scores the above image was shot handheld at f5.6/ 1/30sec ISO 200, the image below handheld at f8.0 1/125sec ISO 400.
