Posted:Hey there,

Welcome to HOP smile

If you mean tips as in Stil film, then yes - there is lots of information here, but to point you in the right drection, take pictures on a tripod, use a slow shutter speed and almost certanly do not take them when its dark....... just as the sun is going down gets best results (IMO)

As for video, well same as above really smile

Im not going to say do a search, as that wouldnt be that helpfull but there really is lots of interesting stuff to read on these boards all about taking pictures and footage of firespinning, if i wasnt sat at work wanting to get out the door id post you a few links but, you found your way here ok so go find your way around the endless boards of information here smile

Have fun biggrin

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?
