Kevin organised a brilliant evening on the beach to demonstrate his fire spinning skills. An unprecedented number of Visionares turned up near the Beach Ballroom armed with with cameras and tripods. Basically Kevin stuffs some fine wirewool in a whisk attached to a piece of string. He lights the wirewool with a small battery and swings the whisk around. It is advisable to stay well clear as the sparks fly a considerable distance. Not that impressive to see in real time, but when it is dark enough and you take a long enough exposure (10 secs or so) the resulting image is quite spectacular. Below a small selection culled from Facebook. Fascinating to see the different shots that were posted up.
It took a while to get dark enough, so there was a bit of talk amongst yourselves before the fireworks started.
Someone suggested we used the Beach Ballroom as a backdrop, very effective.
Later the action moved to the tunnel under the road which produces a nice rectangular frame.
Please leave a comment - we would love to hear from you.
