The Stow Gypsy fair was a very enjoyable experience, i got to meet a few individuals and heard what they think about the fair and why it is important. The people all seemed very pasionate about their tradtion and loved to pose for photos, I was expecting a bit more of a challenge when it came to photographing them but most were more than happy.
The amount of random bits and bobs they sold made me realise their way of living, they would sell pretty much anything to get money, from shoes to shooting jackets and live stock to caravans. The people seemed to be in expensive designer clothes which shows they are quite well off and they like to look good most of the time.
I tried to capture the day in these six images, the people, what they were selling and how it was all sold. I used a combination of flash and a small aperture to fill in the shadows on the peoples faces and bring out detail in their clothes. for the still life images available light was used as it was overcast and the light was even and soft which made quite nice shooting conditions.
