    Portrait Artist at the Dundalk Fair

    I couldn't do anything about that post and at any other angle the composition was bad and the background much too bright.
    Eventually I convinced myself that, since the artist was the real subject, that the post emphasized that the people in the background weren't important.
    Shooting in this kind of overhead light is a constant battle against dark shadows and brilliant backgrounds that don't help anything.
