If you're in Sudan, it would be best to avoid doing day for night in the middle of the day with the overhead sun, but either in the morning or later afternoon. With a fire effect I'd try doing a dusk for night effect (although, where you are located that is very short compared to more northern latitudes and the shooting time available may be too brief for your schedule) otherwise the flames aren't really going to glow that much doing day for night. You can see this effect on quite a few older Hollywood films where the flames are quite dark rather than bright in the day for night scenes.

BTW You need to use your full real name, it's one of the forum rules.

You'll need to put that name into your profile, so it shows rather than just Ayman.

What do you mean by "shine fire"? Is it a bright fire?

Best shoot the fire scenes at twilight, when the ambient light levels are lower; that's dusk for night rather than day for night.
