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.

Burning Man is yearly gathering of about 70,000 people, many from the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrating love, life, passion and art during one week in a desolated desert in Nevada.
The event takes place each last week of august in an immense dry lakebed called Black Rock Desert. A temporary city is built where about everything is permitted except violence, money and commerce.
The culmination of the event is the burning of a large human-shape figure in a giant bonfire, hence the name (Burning Man). The city disappears completely at the end of the week, leaving no trace.
