Time-lapse Carnival Rides

We went to the Kansas State Fair after work on Monday. After doing the usual fair things, including eating a BBQ turkey leg, it was time to take some photos.

Once again I decided to try my hand at capturing some interesting time-lapse photos of the carnival rides. I was worried that I wasn’t getting any good shots as most of the rides were the same as in past years.

Turns out I was wrong! I’m very pleased with some of the shots I was able to capture and have shared my 5 favs below. I was especially happy with the ferris wheel results; I didn’t realize I was capturing the patterns so well.

I’ve placed the images in two separate Flickr sets, one for the ferris wheel shots and one for the rest.

Tech details: Canon 7D, 17-55EF, 3-6 seconds, f18, 100 iso
