One more from last weekend’s carnival, I had set up in front of the Casino ride with a particular shot in mind – a mix of lights and reflections that I hoped to capture. As I was adjusting my settings and composition, I noticed a young girl walking up to the measurement sign checking to see if she was tall enough to ride. I snapped a few frames as the girl stood tall and her sibling (I think) tried to figure out if she was indeed tall enough for the Casino ride.
When I arrived home, this was my favorite shot of this ride and was far more interesting than the shot I had in mind. I decided to use black and white to keep the lights of the ride from pulling the viewer’s eye away from the new focal point for this shot.
