It's good to have a real brick-and-mortar camera store nearby. In 2018, Roberts Camera offered a night photography workshop on the midway of the Indiana State Fair. It was neat to get out and try a few new tricks with a group of like-minded people. Here are the results. There was a 40% chance of rain in the forecast and things weren't looking too promising at the scheduled meeting time. Fortunately, the sky started to clear up and gave is a beautiful red sky at sunset. Sunset on the Midway Thanks to modern LED lighting, I had a hard time getting exposures long enough to give the desired effect. (I packed some ND filters, but sadly left them in the car parked at the opposite end of the fairgrounds.) The Freak Out ride has four sets of seats at the end of an arm that swings and spins. In the background you can see the Screamer, which is an older ride that just spins around. Freaking Out The instructor had us try some zoom action during the exposures. This is another spinny ride called 1001 Nachts. 1001 Nachts This is my favorite of the evening. The moving lights combined with the zoom resulted in an interesting effect. Alien Abduction It was definitely a learning experience. At WDW, I'm used to 20-30 second exposures at f/8. On the brightly lit midway, I was had the lens closed all the way down to f/22 and could only manage 2-4 second exposures without blowing out highlights. Next time I'll remember the ND filters.
