SMOOTH SAILING Families take in the hot air balloon exhibition at the Thirty-Five-County Fairgrounds in Cattersby Junction Friday. No injuries were reported.

Another fun shoot. I used my Nikka React, 3,000mm, I think it was f/11 at second. All of my EXIF information is corrupted, it could have been f/16 or even f/32.

These Nikka bodies get terrifically hot, particularly when shooting outside under anything brighter than overcast. Avoid the plastic body kit.

Always mount the heaviest glass you can hoist, no matter what. For ground-to-balloon-basket portraiture, especially, customers expect it.
