I’ve been wanting to do a shoot at the fair for a long time now. It always looks so fun with all the colors and lights! So instead of waiting for the shoot to magically come to me (doesn’t happen), I decided to do one 2 weeks ago when the fair was in The Hague.
The preparations for the shoot were a bit hectic: I had to find a model last minute, because the first canceled. We looked for a stylist verrry last minute. I had to rent the lens I always use for shoots, because my mom took it with her on holiday. And lastly, I had been having pains in my leg, hip and back for a while and had practically been on bed rest and medication for a week, so I didn’t know if I could make it through a whole afternoon walking and carrying heavy camera gear.
But.. as you can see, it turned out to be a really fun shoot and I’m super happy with the results!
However, I want to do another shoot at the fair, because THERE WAS NO MERRY-GO-ROUND(!!) which was on my shooting list. Now I have to go back when there’s a bigger fair or go to an amusement park. Wouldn’t a couple or friends shoot be nice there?
