One of the nights in Mexico there was a Fire and Water show on the beach at the resort. We were late in arriving to the show and were seated way in the back of the crowd but that didn’t stop me from attempting to capture a few images. The show was very impressive and has a surprise twist at the end that I will write about next week (are you intrigued?) The shooting conditions were less than ideal seeing as I was seated pretty far away and was yelled at by an old woman when I tried to stand in the back to take photos. (My brother’s response to her calling me out: “I wish it were legal to hit old people.”) Despite these hiccups, I did the best with the camera and lens I had in tow. I wish I had read this article from Jim Richardson about shooting with available light before the show, but I think I was able to hit most of the points on his list.
