Never doubt that a small group of crusties, activists, and politicos can change the world... in fact, it's the only thing that ever does ;-)

Those are two pictures of me fire breathing on the same night. It's sp easy takeing pictures of fire breathing when you film it and then capture the best frames.

Brilliant. For anything really, not just fire.

Posted:Video low res .

Why not just open the shutter for the whole blow.
The only light in the scene is that fireball, so you get all of it as the image doh.
Can even do that with digicams
on my canon by setting it to overexpose

Posted:Then it's way to bright and the contrast between the fireball and everything else is monkey. It also blurs the fireball together. But yeah the video camera is low res but a good enough camera will give you pretty nice results.

Its just a matter of money

Posted:I've seen some really good pics of fireballs
(not breathing) taken like that.
but maybe your right, they were a shorter burn than your average blow.
Will experiment next time I have my camera out.

hmmmm. I'm speculating like a really tired person.

Anyone else know the right answer?

Posted:Nobody ever listens to me but the right answer is leave the shutter open for a while AND use a flash. You get a solid crisp person AND the benefit of using a longer exposure time. Just make sure you've got a dark background as any light sources in the background of the photo will blur if you're not on a tripod.

Sometimes that looks cool too though...

Posted:Here's me with flash and 1 second exposure.

No tripod and the bright "Footlocker" sign in the background give it the blurred look (which I kinda dig). With a tripod and dark backgroud this photo would have been pretty darn crisp.

Posted:NYC thats a nice pic, i think the back ground gives it a little something that a lot of fire pics lack. It's quite vibrant
I had a look around the site and all the pics are really good quality, so how ever you take the pics, keep on doing it!!!!!!!

BTW while i was there i noticed this

Posted:That's an old hobby actually.

Many of the blurry ones were taken without a flash but you can see the difference. I find that SO many fire pictures look the same, especially without a flash that it really could be anybody spinning. The flash lets you see a face at least.

But that's just me...
