Photography: bad light at events

Horse and children at the Frying Pan in Darlaston

We took some photos at the weekend, but the skies were grey and the light really poor. I took at look at this gathering at the Frying Pan pub in Darlaston and using the flash near horses wasn’t an option. This was probably my best picture, because it was fairly close up and I had cooperative models!

The light from the grey sky reflects down and makes everything look a little grey and so obviously in this picture the road tend to dominate the picture.

The Frying Pan, Darlaston

You can see how grey the sky was on Sunday  in this picture. Buildings are usually good subjects in poor light, but I think this shot could be much better.

This shot is a little better, because I zoomed in and the horse reflects the light a little. I can read the license plate on the red car and so the image isn’t blurred, but doesn’t seem so clearly defined because of the poor light.

I took a few pictures at the Red Lion in Darlaston too. This is a nice pub, but it looked grey as the sky on Sunday.

It’s good when someone will actually pose for a picture and it’s a fairly relaxed pose. This picture isn’t bad, but we can try for a better one when it’s sunny!

The photos have to be really good to get them into the local paper. I did upload these to the newspaper, but I don’t think they will make it into print. They might use them on the website. The weather changes so quickly here we have to be prepared for anything. The official photographer from the newspaper had problems photographing the carnivals at the weekend. I’m practising ready for the Darlaston Party in the Park and Wednesbury Carnival. They are both on the 12th of July. See you there!

    • Hi Steve,

      I’ll do my best. If you can post a note saying what time you’re all meeting up. I did a bit too much in the garden so have a bad leg. I think it’ll be OK by tomorrow, but I don’t want to wander around too much. I know the sort of thing the Express an Star like now, so I’ll do my best to take a series and get them interested! Thanks – Mike
