And it burns, burns, burns: the ring of fire, the ring of fire

Here are some photos of a fire spinner at the night carnaval in Nice.
I was playing around with long exposures to capture the trail of light.


They were taken hand held rather than on a tripod which would have helped the photos but wouldn't have been too good in the crowd.


She was using fire batons rather than poi.

Hopefully I'll manage to learn from these and get better photos next time but I liked the firey shapes that appeared.

I like the photos, and can see what you mean about taking pictures of the trail the fire leaves. The trails look almost like graffiti - painting pictures with fire. I don't mind about the rest of the image being blurred as it makes the trail stand out more.

I like these as well, and I agree with S that the blurry background makes the light patterns stand out well. Reminds me of writing with sparklers on Bonfire night many years ago!
