Fairs and carnivals offer a variety of options for photography. At night, they are perfect for capturing the rides’ bright lights using a tripod and slow shutter speed. Rain and gloomy weather are excellent for getting foreboding shots of Ferris wheels cast against ominous clouds.

Last week, it just so happened that the weather was perfect, so I concentrated on shooting the bright colors of the artwork while my kids binge rode the rides.
