Why Beginner Photographers Shouldn’t Photograph Fire Performers

A really great idea for any wedding, special event or gathering of any type is to hire some fire entertainers. These guys can juggle fire, breathe fire, and pretty much survive on the raging flames that are their life and their source of income.

I have honestly never seen better entertainment than when I saw a fire juggling show last year in Las Vegas. I was so inspired by the show that as a professional photographer I started to take a ton of pictures to publish in a nice little set of entertainment pieces.

Well let me tell you that taking good pictures of fire entertainers is not nearly as easy as it sounds. Of course I was able to manage because I’ve been in the business for over 30 years now, but not everybody might have the same experience.

If you are a beginner, taking photos of fire performers probably isn’t the best idea because the pictures may not turn out very well, that is of course if you don’t follow any of these tips! Continue reading “Why Beginner Photographers Shouldn’t Photograph Fire Performers” »

Fisher Price Perfect Photo, possibly the best looking camera ever.

After seeing some very grainy, black and white images taken with a Fisher Price toy camera I was inspired and consequently headed straight for eBay. A few days later my new (well, used), very funky looking toy camera arrived. With a stash of 35mm films, I took it to a friend’s house to test it out. I felt instantly like I was 5 years old again, and loved every minute.

A confession around 35mm

I love my Diana. I love every moment, every experiment, every light-leak’y and blurry image, every dark cornered and soft-focused picture, every perfect and imperfect photograph that the awesome box has taken so far- I simply love my Diana. And I love medium format film. I am not sure whether it is the backing paper, the spools or the great negatives – it could even be down to the fact that 120 rolls fit just perfectly into my film dryer; I really can’t put my finger on it. All I know is, that a Diana fed with medium format film, is my idea of happiness.

So, now I have got this off my chest, let’s get this review of ‘analogue-lifestyle-and-something-satisfyingly-different-to-what-I-just-mentioned’ going. Continue reading “A confession around 35mm” »
