Lot's of Hot Air Balloon Events take place all over Ohio, here's a few of my photography Hot Air Balloon Tips:
Lenses: Most lenses in your bag will come in handy at a Balloon Fest, wide angles for an overall view of the balloons and for cool effects if you can move close to the balloons, fisheyes also come in handy. Telephotos are great for getting close ups of the balloons and isolating balloon patterns.
Balloon Photo Tips:
1. See which way the wind is blowing then position yourself so the balloons will fly toward you.
2. Look for colors, shapes and patterns
3. Use people as scale to show how large the Balloons are
4. Show the crew at work
5. And of course show them in the air!!!
