Robert Hernandez Shoots Fire Up Close

Robert Hernandez created this video just for all of you FS readers out there. Robert's shoot isn't really that complicated from a photography stand point but I sure wouldn't call it easy. Robert is shooting images inside rooms purposely caught on fire for fire department training. The room reaches over 200 degrees while Robert attempts to get the shot and protect his gear.

Just curious if you guys took any of these shots at a slower shutter speed and if so can you post them. Wish you would have more of how you guys were able to withstand the extreme heat. Great job though - bad a*s fire!!!

He said 1/50th of a second...

Anyway, nice job, surprised they didn't give him the firefighter gear (boots, bunker, jacket). In the kitchen, would have been cool to orange gel the flash to get the color temp high (like the fire).
