Shoot Fifteen - Marshfield Fair

Toronto - as Jim, Tony, Mike, Elaine, Joani, Milt, and Peyton figured out!

"Demo Derby Time!"

It was late August of 2016 when several of us decided to shoot the Marshfield Fair at night for Shoot Fifteen. We got over there early enough to get some late afternoon captures of the Demolition Derby. For some reason I went off on my own and left Jeff the W to feign for himself. Well he wound up in the press box overlooking the entire demo pit while I was scurrying around to find a vantage point.

Lesson learned, Jeff knows how to get things done!

This was another image where I wanted to have some fun with the post-processing. I was leaning toward a comic book look and I think I got it.
