It might be just me, but I love fire. I did a little survey and 5 out of 5 photogs I checked with are little pyros too. Maybe it is part of the requirements of the trade. And maybe we're all still small kids who get a buzz from a little fire.
This is why I decided to create a small startup guide for shooting matches - feel free to add/comment and improve. The more ideas we throw into this, the better this guide will be.
