Playing with Fire

Fire & Light Photographic Workshop

October 2nd, 2021
Hot Sam's Foto Park

Cost of Workshop - $135

Frozen Hiker Photography, B&B Entertainment and Hot Sam's Foto Park 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.  They will be performing around several of the great features contained at Hot Sams.

What to expect:

We will begin with a lecture that covers camera settings, composition, and "working the intensity of the light."  We will also discuss safety.  We will begin with some single performers.  During this time, Don will provide assistance to help everyone with their camera settings and composition.  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.
