Last weekend, I took my camera over to Leamington and spent the afternoon with the Leamington Spa Hoop Club. A few of the hoopers were a little wary to start with, but once they got used to me prowling around the room pointing a camera at them, I got some pretty good shots.
Afterwards, we gathered outside and the fire hoops appeared. It wasn’t really dark enough to get really effective long exposures, but I was quite pleased with some of the results – and at least the rain held off until we were packing up.
I had a really good time – a fun afternoon with a really nice bunch of people. I hope they’ll let me go back again sometime.
You can see the full set of indoor photos here, and the fire hooping shots here.
