As I write this, the Eastern part of the USA is preparing for its first significant snowstorm of 2016. That got me thinking ahead to spring and summer, and with that, I’d like to share a link to a recent PDF Guide that I wrote entitled: 12 Tips for Getting Great Photos at Balloon Festivals and Related Events

You can download the PDF for free from this link.
If you’ve ever been to a Balloon Festival, feel free to post links to your photos or feel free to suggest one to others who may be reading this.
Some of the photos in the article were taken during the QuickChek NJ Festival of Ballooning. I ran a Meetup at the 2015 show during a special Media Day that they have each year that allows photographers of all levels (and the media) to see the balloons up close for no fee. You can find that Meetup here, and while you’re there, please consider joining our Meetup group of nearly 400 photographers and other artists. I plan to post some upcoming Lightroom and other photo-related workshops and get togethers soon.
I hope you enjoy it and please stay safe out there this weekend if you will be out in the elements.
