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.

Vital Stats: Canon 5D Mark II w/Canon 70-200 f/4L + 1.4x Extender @ 189mm  ISO 3200, f/5.6, 1/200 sec.
