In my continuing education to learn the Sigma 15mm f/2.8 EX DG Fisheye Lens, I went back to the Great New York State Fair last week. The Midway was calling with all the motion of the rides and bright lights. Using the tripod, ballhead and L-Bracket I reviewed the last week, I setup in front of various colorful, spinning rides.
Riders whirl around a lighted ride. I used the tripod like a monopod so I could get the 180 degree view inside the safety fencing and a sharp image at 1/15th of a second.
The magic of blue hour soon descended over the Midway enhancing the backdrop of the Big Wheel behind the nutritious food stand called Crazy Fried Things. Deep fried Oreos anyone?
How about a spin on the Round Up? A classic midway ride.
