Fire Dancers

At last weekend's Worldwide Photowalk in Cleveland the group leader arranged to have performers at Voinovich Bicentennial Park for us to photograph. Brianna and Dixie performed with hula hoops and fire.

I don't normally do a lot of people photography, but knowing there were performers on this particular walk, I chose it as a personal challenge to work on shots with people.

I probably took 250 shots and kept these. I'm happy with the composition, but figured out some camera settings and technical things I would change next time.

The fire was beautiful and warm. Playing around in Lightroom, I worked the image for a realistic version, then tried a second version in black & white the gives it a very abstract look.
