Another year, another naked bike ride. After two years shooting at the event with quirky panoramic cameras I decided I wanted a bit more control this year, and took my regular SLR, albeit with my new wide angle lens, so I could still take advantage of a wide field of view to get some sense of the crowd. On this day though I really didn't seem to be in the photographic mode, and found myself not quite knowing what to do with that control. So I didn't take many shots this year. Also using a heavier camera I found it much trickier to shoot on the fly mid-ride, so I only really got shots from when the ride paused. What I have taken I quite like though, and has me thinking already about how I might approach the next ride! You can see the rest of what I shot, here.
I've finally gotten round to scanning my negatives from this year's World Naked Bike Ride. I shot using my spinning 360 degree camera this year, which had mixed results as it's not a camera I've used very much. The overall image quality I got as a result is a bit meh, but I think it did achieve what I was hoping for in giving a better impression of the scale of the event. Here are a couple of my favourite shots, see the rest on my gallery page.
