Those are some photos from my Burning Man photo album that fall in the Fire Arts category.

Most of the Fire Arts artists also participate to Burning Man.

Photos of performers spinning LED-light or laser hula hoops and staffs.
I general I used a combination of long-exposure and flash, to capture the beautiful light trails while the performer is frozen by the flash, so it does not appear blurred. It is not an easy technique but the results are amazing.
