Rings of Fire

Rings of Fire at the Moon Festival © 2013 Jenn Lin Photography

Here’s another photo that I shot at the Moon Festival. It almost reminds me of the planet Saturn, the way the streaks of fire seem to make rings around a circle. I love how a projection of Still Moon Arts’ logo is framed in the middle behind the performer.

How to achieve this effect: shoot in bulb mode. The long-exposure enables the performer to paint rings as the fire is being moved in a circular motion. For more on shooting in bulb mode, see my earlier photo of the day “Lantern Installation.”
