Playing a subtle trick with color directs our gaze to the key elements and makes this image truly outstanding. By letting the room go quite blue, the photographer shifted the emphasis off the general scenery and onto the subtle orange tones of the candle-lit elements—most importantly, the fire-eater at the center of the frame. Unusual subjects don't intimidate Fearless Photographers; they inspire them!

About Daniel Aguilar:Hi! My name is Daniel Aguilar, I'm a 1981 vintage model made in the city of Puebla, Mexico. I moved to Texas when I was an 18 year old teenager to pursue what I thought was my dream back then of becoming a Computer Scientist.
Little I knew that I was destined to hate Computer Science and to live some of the four toughest years of my life trying to finish a degree I didn't really like; however, it was during this rough university years that photography came into my life.
I will always remember the day I developed my first film picture in a dark room, I was surrounded by the smell of weird chemicals and all I could see was red light. After a few attempts and a few seconds soaked into the developer, my picture came to life and instantaneously fell in love with photography. I knew I wanted to become a photographer.
