Extreme - part 10

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 28 October 2013 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Great balls of fire! The Fireflies cast their spell over the audience.

After dark, the Electric Theatre lights up the grounds of the Floriade festival.

To get the shot, I used off camera flash. (You can see the flash unit on top of the mini tripod at the edge of the stage.) With rear curtain flash, I was seeking to get the blur of fire while also freezing the movement of the performer at the end of the long exposure.

This shot closes my series. Hope you enjoyed all the circus and extreme sport thrills.
