This fire dancing was an unusually challenging subject to shoot: fire, lots of fast and slow movements, and dim lighting! Sometimes there is no better way to refresh an old skill than to jump in, and just do it.
Cattiva is a local burlesque performer and very skilled fire dancer. She carries full insurance, and her dance was incredibly inspiring up close. It was hard to pay attention to the technical aspects of recording her, especially while she was using the larger flame devices. To see her hulahoop with fire, around her neck, was just captivating.
Below is my first edit.
I’d be happy to make your next web-video clip for a reasonable price. As you can see, I can shoot just about anything in my large studio
