Carnival lights

When my friend Ed asked me if I wanted to go do a photo safari (aka go take pictures) at a local carnival, I was all in.  I have a photography bucket list, full of different subjects and and settings I want to take pictures of/in, and taking pictures at a fair is on that list.  Having a friend walk around and shoot with you is always way more fun than going by yourself.

Here are a couple favorite shots, I didn’t feel like lugging a tripod around so these were shot freehand.

Space was tight as this was quite a small carnival so compositions had to get creative.



 Probably one of the most “daring” rides at this little carnival. This is the one that keeps you against the wall with centripetal force.



Love the colored shots, but can’t help but love the movement in this BW shot.



  We got there in time to do some dusk shots which proved kinda pointless as there wasn’t enough space to have a good foreground setting, but we lucked out and got some lovely color in the sunset.



All in all, it was a fun night with friends, and the lovely sunset was icing on the funnel cake (which we all ate.. along with some cheesecake on a stick)
