I went into work early this afternoon to spend some time on my photography role for a couple of hours without having to worry about the more mundane tasks I’d be dealing with later. My mission was to capture some of the activities and the festival spirit on camera.
Many of the stallholders were happy for me to take their photo and it was fun to catch people on camera as they enjoyed themselves. Woodfest is an unusual mix of music and wood/craft themed activities, so there was no shortage of things to photograph.
From time to time I popped into the various music stages to photograph some of the performers in action. The music varied from folk to rock, pop and country so I found an eclectic mix of fashion styles among my subjects too.
As night fell I sneaked in some more photographic explorations, looking for interesting light where I could find it. The darkness was challenging but my camera didn’t let me down and the night shots are some of my favourites from the event.
Finally, I caught another of the bands, Fred’s House, on the main stage and had great fun catching those expressive moments where the musicians were really getting involved in their performance.
