I really enjoy event photography. We’ve done it for so many years, that sometimes I have little goals for myself to keep it fresh and interesting. One of those goals, during the re-enactor events, is to capture the actual “moment of fire” that happens so quickly that the eye doesn’t even register the flame but the camera can. These are some of my favorites.
