The Imperial Opa Circus

This saturday (10/12/2013) I had a window open to shoot between a rehearsal for a wedding and the rehearsal dinner.  My dear friend Vivian (who just got engaged!) mentioned that her circus troop, The Imperial Opa, was doing a small showing for the Riverview Landing Fall festival.  The Imperial Opa has an absolutely awesome assortment of various performers doing things juggling, tumbling, aerial trapeze, rope climbing, fire spinning and more.  Armed with only about 2 hours to shoot, I brought what was in the care and here’s a few sample photos!

Interested in shooting them with studio lighting and more, check out this event in a few days.

Technical Info:
Shot with a Canon 5d mark III and a tamron 24-70 2.8 VC lens at about F16.  Had a Norman ML600 barebulb running full power towards the performer.

Assisted by Elaina and Matthew.
