My city had it’s 2nd annual balloon festival. I wasn’t able to make the one from last year, but did make it to this one. It was fun and colorful. It was also very hot and very humid. However, I did get some nice photos from this event. I don’t consider my night photography to be very good. So, I was out of my comfort zone. Plus the balloons didn’t all do their “burn” at the same time and I was hustling to one then to another trying to get a picture while worrying about, “is this the right Aperture, ISO?, and F/stop.” With the photos that did turn out, has enhance my love for night time photography and will encouraged me to get out more at night to improve those skills.
I have joined with a group of photographer from my state and they have a closed Facebook group. They are very active and this past weekend with the balloons and the supermoon has kept me busy. I’m usuallly a bit shy on getting out but have really enjoyed the new experiences.
I also got back from the gulf and will be posting some of those pictures. These past 3 weeks have been productive – at least with photography.
