WEDNESDAY 12 OCTOBER – Hull Fair Trip!
AFTER MISSING our Annual Trip to Hull Fair due to the pandemic, we are looking forward to re-acquainting ourselves with all the fun of the fair (note: weather permitting)!
The fair is obviously the source of many photo opportunities but a favourite is using long exposures at night to capture the blur of moving rides. A tripod is obviously useful here.
For those worried that the fair is too busy for photography and setting up tripods, etc, then please don’t worry. In years of photographing the fair then there have never been any problems finding places to shoot. Just be aware of who’s around you and try not to spoil anyone else’s view or fun. And keep an eye on loose equipment and bags, etc, and those of others. Sadly, the police do warn us each year that thieves and pickpockets are active and no doubt ‘work’ the fair – so bear that in mind at all times. Again, we have never experienced anything untoward on our previous club outings.
We are meeting at the Anlaby Road junction at Walton Street (the pub corner) from 6.45pm – 7.00pm and will make our way around fair as one or two groups depending on how many of us are there.
For those that wish, then another, rarer photo opportunity of the fair presents itself on the Sunday after the fair is closed (16 October this year). It’s a chance to get views of the fairground being deconstructed, packed up, and trucked away. You’ve got to be careful because it’s a working area, but some great images are to be made.
We’ve noticed more and more photographers turning up each year to photograph the after-fair experience. If you fancy an after-fair trip on Sunday morning, give a shout-out via comments, the Facebook Group or the WhatsApp chat group.
