Last year I attended the fair with my kids, I had a pretty decent bridge camera with an incredible zoom and zoomed in on the fairground flag. This was the best capture I got:
YUCK it’s not even good. Out of focus in places, full of camera noise, lighting and contrast issues; I could go on.. I set a goal at that moment to return with a better camera and learn how to take an INCREDIBLE image of that flag…I don’t know if the ones below count as incredible, I’ll let you decide.
And then there’s my personal favorite:
I love love love my sigma lens though I do wish it had image stabilization on it as it’s pretty heavy and handheld in dark situations lends a lot of camera shake. I plan on returning to the fair again with my kids and we’ll stay till it closes. I’m gonna take a tripod and capture that flag again at night. I can’t wait to see the difference!
