Fast action sports at night are a bugger to shoot – this being no exception. Every Sunday, Whistler puts on the Fire and Ice extravaganza – an hour of fireworks both of the pyrotechnic and skiing variety. The culmination of the show is a big ring of fire that the ski instructors jump through. This shot is one of the guys in the show throwing something very Johnny Mosley-esque.
How do you shoot something like this? Big lens, high ISO, and a BIIIG flash. Be sure and pre-focus, and keep your fingers crossed.
