[Photography] Tips: Street performance by night

Street performance at Lausanne

Here is a picture of a street performance: an artist was dancing while holding a cord with two ends attached to fire balls.

To have the effect of moving fire, the following parameters were set:

  • Long exposure time (0.8 s in this case)
  • Hence, tripod is a must !
  • Small F-number, in order to focus only on the movement of the artist.
  • As consequence, the ISO was set at maximum.
