When it comes to photography I am a great believer in saying yes to as many opportunities as possible to expand your skills. Earlier in the week I was invited by family friends (who have 10-year old twins) to come to the circus.
I have shot much performance photography in the past but thought it’d be an interesting way to stretch myself. Inside the circus tent itself I wasn’t allowed to shoot video or use flash, but I often find restrictions can make you think outside the box.
It was a small circus but this worked to my advantage as I could get a front row seat and get up close to the incredibly talented performers.
As I couldn’t shoot video inside I switched my camera to burst mode so I could capture the action..
