Carnival Ride... what camera settings and technique
Aug 20, 2014

Last summer in Munich, I felt completely out of my element using my K3 to take a few snapshots of my two daughters on a carnival ride.   I was reasonably happy with the photos, but feel like if I knew what I was doing the photos would have been better.   Below are a couple of examples. Any suggestions?    Most likely the same photo-op will come up next summer again, and the state fair is coming up here in about a month.  The lens was my favorite, the Pentax 18-135.  I just used center spot autofocus.
