The Armada Fair wrapped up its 143rd run last week and I went down early Friday morning to take in the sites before the crowds came. It’s nice to get there early, the place isn’t packed with people, it’s peaceful and the staff, vendors and participants are just getting ready to start the day. Although the clear blue sky didn’t provide the best lighting I still found great subject matter. The Budweiser Clydesdales came in for the event and the Budweiser crew was getting them ready for the show. There was also a Miniature Horse going on and the children involved were both posed and professional, the parents should be very proud of them (Parents, please reach out to me if you are interested in the photos I shot, my prices are very reasonable!).
Working in harsh lighting conditions is a challenge but, understanding composition and working with the angle of the sun will allow you to still get great shots.
When walking though an event, you never know what photo op may appear before you. Be solidly familiar with your camera’s operations and functions; and some times you can capture a great moment like this.
