Behind the scenes of the Dragon Ball photo shoot, you can see Preston and Nick assembling the elements of light. Preston (on the left) is igniting a flammable substance from a can (I know what it was, but in the interests of responsibility, I’m not telling you) and Nick is waving a cool blue light stick to create a ‘force field’ then posing for the strobe light. You can see what the image is supposed to look like by checking out the photos taken by 2 dozen + other photographers that were there (on the far side of the action).
Here’s a wide-angle behind the scene view of the ‘LOW LIGHT SERIES – Light Painting! (Fire Breathing Dragons, Lasers, and Magic!)’ photo shoot the other night that my past few photos are from.

Here is another ‘Orb of Fire’ from the Photography Meetup Group, similar to the one from Friday, this one has the fire interacting with the environment more. I love the way the sparks are hitting the ground in the bottom right of the image.
I attended a Meetup Group last night titled: LOW LIGHT SERIES – Light Painting! (Fire Breathing Dragons, Lasers, and Magic!). It was a lot of fun, I learned a few tricks and got some great shots! Here’s ‘The Orb of Light’ in the river. More fire to come…

RIP Cowboy Slims, the Dale-ification of Uptown continues. Not sure what the heck is going in here, but you can bet that it’s going to be something that belongs at Mall of America. Not that long ago, I used to enjoy going to Cowboy Slims with my posse for lunch. The evening crowd was pretty awful, but at noon, there weren’t that many people there, so it was just us, bourbon and the Tater Tot Hotdish and Beef Ribs. Mmmm.

I took this on a very busy, warm evening when the bridge was quite crowded. With a nice long 20-second exposure, they all became shadows blurred across the scene.
The magic of winter in Minnesota, this is an amazing light effect caused by ice crystals in the air at low altitude. Light reflects on the ice and causes this, it’s not a lens flare, it is clearly obvious with the naked eye.
