Spent a couple hours photographing a charity fire walk by the staff of Redco and IT Force. Motivational speaker Brian Moore was on hand to get everyone in a positive state of mind to brave the fiery coals.
The big challenge was the wind, no matter where i stood smoke was blowing in my face and into lens of camera. I set up the flash off camera but with the crowds this too proved difficult. I ended settling for on camera flash and flagged the flash so light only went forward and not down to the coals as this would just turn them grey. For the most part this worked.
Getting images of the burning logs with the crowd of anxious firewalkers behind proved to be easier and much more effective. Also the images of staff breaking wooden board with bare hands and generally having fun being driven into a positive frenzy showed what a great all round event this was that will no doubt be talked about round coffee machines for a long time in Redco and IT Force.
Congrats for raising c. €15,000 for Our Lady's Childrens Hospital, Crumlin.
