Long Exposure, slow night

Last night I decided to drive up to Nashville to do some shooting at the Tennessee State Fair. My goal was to do some shots using Long Exposure. This is not something I do a lot of. Lucky for me I choose a night that was slow to say the least and since I was going to be using my tripod and a remote. Choosing such a slow night was ideal for this bit of shooting for multiple reason. With fewer people running around there was less of a chance of my tripod and camera being jostled by the crowds and or knocked over.

When I think of a Midway my first thought is a Ferris Wheel dominating the skyline. While this Particular Wheel was not the biggest, it was awfully bright and I was sure I could capture it’s electric grandeur as it’s lights rand through their patterns.

Mission accomplished? Almost I decided to move a bit closer. to

I loved shooting the Wheel, it was after a bit mesmerizing. Later that night I decided that I had to ride the thing at least once. Now I wish I could say that I had some photos of my ride, but truth be told I’m not fond of heights. My hands stayed fastened to the rides furniture with a death’s grip!

 

Below are some additional images I shot last night. Once again it was a slow night which allowed me quite a window for me to shoot these long exposure without fear of the bustling crowds.
