fair pictures!

Caroline absolutely adores rides. She screams and laughs the whole time. I love that about her. I took about 20 of this ride and this one's my fave...


Here's my favorite one of the fair from atop the Ferris Wheel...


Here's my very favorite picture of Caroline on a ride. It's kind of dark but you can see her face IRL.


I don't even remember where we were when this was taken but I think it was on the Ferris Wheel. I love the lights in her eyes (which I don't know if you can even see on the blog. They're incredible in real life.)


So do you get good pics at a fair? I didn't really. I took about 150 and only about 50 are even usable. I couldn't decide to go flash on or flash off. Flash on made her washed out and the pics overbright. Flash off made them blurry 'cause there wasn't enough light! So what do YOU do? I always get disappointed after I go somewhere and don't get good pictures.

We had the same problem in FL at the amusement park. Usually I try to shoot with the external flash and that works good, but then people tend to be washed out. I also try and keep the ISO on 1600, but that doesn't always work either. I think I need to read more books about photography!

I have no photog advice, Tracie.

But I love all the shots you got!
