Two Ferris Wheels turning on a mid summer’s night; from a series: Sunset on the Small Town Carnival. Owing to the rise of mega-parks and high liability insurance, small town carnivals are rapidly disappearing. Whenever possible i try to document this vanishing aspect of the Twentieth Century American landscape.

The original image was shot at 1/15th with a camera flash and 2 remote strobes. The long exposure shows motion and the flash freezes detail. I used opposing color filters on the remotes to get better depth in the subject. In post processing I used a combination of effects from both Illustrator and PhotoShop. The big trick was getting the file size down by rasterizing my AIs in PS and reopening them in AI and re-saving as a vector.

    fantastic colours!

  • Thanx Natalie! I love shooting at night. The photo of this didn’t expose right, but I liked the composition, so I used it to do an illustration.

    I was wondering if you seen the Alternative Process Photography group. It’s great for some of your work and a lot of fun.

  • I sure haven’t! I’ll give it a look. Thanx for the suggestion!!

    Love the effect on this Robert… makes me think of a local carnival that I take my girls to every year… we actually still have one around here!

  • Enjoy your carnivals! I am certain that they are on the way out. A few big operators might be left, but all the little operations are disappearing.

    Thanx Larry! At first (like the midway shot at sunset) I was shooting all vertical and horizontal. But part of what’s fun about the carnival is the dizzy array of smells, sights, people, and motions. So even though I used a tripod, I started to let the work flow away from perpendicular.

    and another good one, they’re so dramatic, great stuff!

  • Thanx! And thanx for making it a favorite! I didn’t care for how the photo image turned out, so I started experimenting…
