    Hi Revidia,

    As most of outdoor photography apply, morning between 7am - 9.30am would have better quality of light, much later the weather would sizzle. But is a whole day event from the early morning. So there are always photo chances to explore and capture.

    Cheers,
    Ricky

    Hi Sculder, this is not a fire walking, the last ceremony held was in last nov i think. Here are some of my pictures of the fire walking to check it out if you are free.

    Thx for all the info, this is my first shoot as well.

    Understand that flash night is a no-no (I beleive it is not to distract others)

    Not trying to slip the regulations, how about video lights is it allowed?

    I am planning to bringing along a monopod also, is it alright?
