    those fire shots are crazy! wow, you did such an amazing job. there is so much going on.. lights, people, gaming… fire!

    what kind of lens and shutter speed did you use? did you use a tripod at all?

    Thanks for asking Lisa. It was actually very hard to shot these photos. There were T.V. cameras with very strong lights which washed out everyone’s skin and using a flash was very tricky.

    I used a tripod for the interior shots but not the action shots. My ISO was at 1600 and I took over 400 photos to make sure I did not come home empty handed. I also alternated between shooting:

    1. without a flash: the best option really, but things or people can be too blurry.

    2. flash in slow-sync mode: my favorite setting but blurry pieces of light can sometimes obscure people’s limbs or faces making the image unclear.

    3. regular flash: standard yet sometimes very boring.

    In order to get something decent I constantly and consistently shoot in all three modes. It is the only way. The SLR digital window can sometimes be very misleading so it’s best to cover all your bases.

    Thanks for the reply. Those tips will be priceless as I will be shooting in similar circumstances in a few weeks (minus the fire juggling).

    I feel the same way about the “viewing” window being misleading. On my camera, it always looks lighter than it actually is, so my exposure is sometimes off. I have learned to just trust my eyes and yes… take many many shots at different settings just incase.

    I haven’t had a lot of success using my flash in concert/nightclub/low light restaurant settings. Even when I bounce the flash off of walls or the ceiling it always overpowers the shot. And I agree that it takes away some of the “ambience” from the shot. plus my flash weighs a TON! I would prefer to just crank up the ISO and open the aperture as wide as possible, longer shutter etc, but you need a tripod or “shaky city” and how convenient is it to bounce around a tight, enclosed space with hundreds of people trying to set up a tripod! Not so much.

    A few more questions, if you don’t mind:
    1. What SLR do you have? Sorry if you’ve already answered this question a million times.
    2. What kind of lenses do you have?
    3. What flash do you have?
    4. Can you recommend a good tripod, because mine is shifty at the best of times.

    Thanks so much. You’re lovely!
