Very cool, great job! <p>Have you ever got into light painting?

Looks awesome!<p>What I'm really amazed by is that you have a very nice motion effect with the fire ball... a not the hands moving the ball.<p>Very clean fire trail.<p>Can I ask what the ISO and Shutter Speed is?

Re: Fireballs (KillerB)

Most of the shot were taken around 1/20th to 1/6th of a second with the flash sync set to rear curtain. The iso is 200 for the cleanest files possible, Canon would be ISO 100. The rear curtain sync on the flash allows me to use long exposures and the pop of light stops motion at the end of the exposure, so if done right, everything is nice and sharp. <p>As for light painting, I've dabbled in it, but not too much.<p><br>Here are a couple more.<br><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v189/gdogg16/_DSC5784.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://keysarphotography.com/fireballs/images/_DSC5780.jpg" BORDER="0"><BR><BR>

Wow, those are amazing shots. Flash is such a mystery to me. When I try to do an long exposure and then a flash, it never works. From looking at the pictures, your flash unit is off your camera. How do you trigger the flash and how do you mount the flash?

Aperture controls the Flash. <p>If you want to learn how to use flash, read Joe McNally's book "the hot shoe diaries" and also pick up Zach Arias' One Light DVD Workshop.
