This series of images was taken backstage at the Fire Dancing Expo held in April 2013 and 2014 at Union Square in San Francisco. A great show with many acts and hundreds of performers. I didn’t shoot all the performers but I was fortunate enough to make some cool images with the people that stopped by. For the set up I used a single softbox to try and get some interesting shots.
Because performers weren’t allowed to light up until they were on stage this series of images is titled Unlit, a play on words with the fire performers and the light I used to capture them.
