Photography: Photographing an Event

Tipton Canal and Community Festival (23)

I photographed the Tipton Canal and Community Festival on Sunday. It’s organised by the Tipton Community Association. This is their stall at the event. It was very cloudy and so not good for photography.

It’s a good idea to take some landscape shots that show the essence of the event, but identifying a clear subject and focusing on that works well in poor light. I zoomed in a lot on the subjects to get more clarity in the poor light.

I do try to focus on the local organisations and hopefully give them some positive publicity. This was the crime prevention stall.

This shot features on particular boat but shows the others in the background. The automatic focus on the camera has made the boat in the foreground quite clear. I think the smoke adds to the image.

The grey sky tends to make everything look grey, so the colourful narrow-boats can break up that greyness. You need quite a fast shutter speed to capture the movement too, which reduces the light further.

Sometimes taking a shot from a shaded spot works well. The camera compensates for the lower light and the brighter parts of the image are a little sharper.

  3. Hi Carolyn,

    These photos found their way onto the local newspaper website too. A lot of people were interested. Editing was difficult, most of them were too dark. I think now winter is approaching there will be new challenges. I have just found out about a vintage fair at my local 13th century manor house next weekend, so I might photograph that!
