When you’re learning a new camera, you have to put it through its paces. Find out what makes it tick and push it to the limits. I wanted to see how far I could push the camera at night, and I was not disappointed with these long exposures. For a while, these shots were only possible with my Alienbee system, but now with the new Sony camera, I have so much more freedom.
I recruited my friend Tasha. She’s a gamer and likes to cosplay. This would be our first photo shoot without a cosplay. We decided to go with a theme though. She dressed like a gamer girl who was taking a break from the games and having some fun at the carnival.
I had fun with her hoodie and experimented with the different lighting patterns from the carnival. I still used a tripod, but I didn’t have to lower my shutter any less than 1/8 of a second.
Fun set! Too bad the carnival is only here in Wichita Falls for only two weeks. Can’t wait to try some new stuff next time.
