The Dance of Many Faces

This was a dance entitled " The Dance of Many Faces". Throughout the dance, the performer changed their face mask dozens of times. The dance culminated in a fire breathing display. 

I have always found it interesting and challenging to photograph fire. It typically doesn't last very long, especially in these kinds of situations. Fire can also have fluid textures that I always find intriguing.

Photographically they are challenging because they generate a large dynamic range. Shoot in RAW to give you better ability to control the range. Be careful if you try to get close to something like a campfire, your photo gear was not meant to get hot!
