Light My Fire

Fire & Light Photographic Workshop

February 16, 2019

Southern Twin Cities

Cost of Workshop - $75

Frozen Hiker Photography, B&B Entertainment and Leaders of Photography have teamed up to offer an amazing photography experience.


Have you ever wanted to photograph live fire performers?  B&B Entertainment is an amazingly talented group of performers.  In addition, I will be assisted by two other outstanding photographers Barb Thompson and Jeff Henningsgaard.  The three of us will work with everyone to help you get some great shots.

What to expect:

We will begin with some instruction from Don that covers camera settings, composition, and "working the intensity of the light."  We will split into 2 smaller groups.  Each group will photograph a single performer while Don, Jeff, and Barb offer some guidance.  Once comfortable with this type of photography, we will start working with multiple performers.  

During the workshop we will explore everything from long exposures that emphasize movement to shorter exposures that freeze a scene.  It is not as easy as it may seem, but once you get the hang of it, you will come away with some great shots.

Experience Level:

This workshop is intended for intermediate photographers.  You should be comfortable with shooting in manual mode.
