Late From the Faire

Near the end of April I had the opportunity to take in the local Renn. Faire being held on campus here in Blooomington. Two things conspired to keep these shots from being put up for folks to enjoy. 1) I just didn't have the time to devote to working on them! 2) I've started shooting in RAW format which entails a few more steps as I take them through digital processing. I enjoy RAW format because it allows so much more flexibility with the image in regards to white balance, color balancing, etc.

I didn't shoot many shots but the ones I have I am incredibly pleased with. I'll start off with the one that gave me goosebumps when I saw it full size on my screen. Shooting very purposefully at a high shutter speed, it allowed me to capture the liquid igniting and the result which was a blossoming fireball.

Below are a handful of other shots that I think are the cream of the crop from the sunny day at the Faire.




This particular day was a good one since after leaving the Faire, I headed over to a IU baseball game. And, yes, I took my camera along. Those shots are up next!

WOW!1 Good job, Yote. The fireball one gives me goosebumps as well.

(And for the record, when i saw the link here from el jay, i didn't glance at the post's author and thought you were Adam. Which i mean as high praise.)

Heh. Thanks, Bear. I'd like to think I've improved a bit in my seclusion. Of course, it could just be insanity. *wink*
