But creepy carnivals make the best photos! ;)
Tito and I have had a romantic tradition of going to the CNE every year, on a work night, and just walking around, shooting the rides, eating bad food and losing spectacularly at games.
This year I tried something a little different, just for fun:
Here’s how you get the effect – take multiple shots of each ride, like so:
Then you bring them all in to Photoshop. You want all the pictures to be different layers in the same file. You change the blend mode of each later to ‘darken’, and voila! I like how the drop ride now looks like a crazy caterpillar.
The results are very cool, I can’t wait to try it with more complex movements, like the erratic flight path of a bee, or one of those games where everyone is tossing rings at a row of bottles. I plan to have a lot of fun with this one! Of course, that’s not to say that I didn’t also do my favourite – long exposure shots.
I love the CNE, can’t wait for the airshow!
Love, love, love these photos. I have always wanted to do exactly the same thing … but, I haven’t found the right timing or carnival to go to in my area. (a couple of them get a little too creepy at night, if you know what I mean)
