Behind The Lens

Location
In one of the favorite spot of Paris for burners, the "Palais de Tokyo", just nearby the Eiffel Tower
Time
Obviously by night
Lighting
All the light comes from the Lycopodium torch the performer was holding during his backflip. His name is Nicolas Samsoën and it was it"s first fire backflip! Not bad for a first timer…
Equipment
My trusty Nikon D750 with a 24 70mm f/2.8 zoom lens
Inspiration
I was asked to by a professional juggler friend, Floryane, who invited Nicolas to have his first fire experience photoshoot.
Editing
Adobe Camera Raw to develop the raw photo, Photoshop for cleaning.
In my camera bag
Exactly what I used for this photo.
Feedback
As usual for fire photography, and especially here with a first timer, you need to have a fire safety guy with special training and equipment in case anything goes sideways. Obviously, fire is very dangerous.
