The Flying Bobs

The Flying Bobs

I liked the detail and textures of the Flying Bobs ride. Also the lovely lighting and the color of the sky made it stand out for me. I studied it a bit and decided to catch it at a low perspective, to maximize the shape, distortion and to incorporate some color in the base of the shot (the yellow and red walking pad) I shot it at f/11 to get a deep depth of field and because of the amount of light, I had to keep the shutter open for 15 seconds. To get the low perspective, I put the camera on the ground used my beanbag, iPhone and camera strap to prop it up enough to get the whole ride in the composition.
