I’ve recently found myself at a couple of festivals (this one being the Downieville Mountain Brewfest), and have tried to get a variety of shots.
This of course is the overall crowd. I like these shots as busy as possible.
Logos and signage are great too! Vendors are there to strut their stuff, so why not take advantage of the hard work their marketing and art staff do?
Ditto behind-the-scenes … I love seeing the logistics, and how people make events like this function. I’m always amazed when they go off without a hitch (or at least when the issues are well-hidden).
But above all you’ve got to have fun! That’s the whole point.
Next time … similar thoughts, from San Francisco.
