middlewich folk festival '08...

We were official photographers at this year's Middlewich Folk and Boat Festival for the 3rd year running. We captured over 1700 decent images - these galleries show some of our favourites.

For more details of the festival and more of our photos, check the official MFAB website....

We would very much like comments (for good or ill) on these pictures -

Images on this page were taken with Nikon D300 and D80 cameras, Nikkor 70-200mm VR, Nikkor 18-70, Sigma 12-24, lenses and Nikon SB800 flash. Indoor shots were mostly captured at 1600 -3200 ISO without flash. We dislike using flash as it disturbs both performers and audience, and often produces flat, overbright images. Most images taken in the marquee are affected by a yellow/red colour-cast arising from the tent material and the stage lighting although Adobe LightRoom is very effective at removing the worst of this.
