The 2011 Bannow/Rathangan Agricultural show was my backup plan for the Photojournalism photoessay. I was approaching it from a Martin Parr type perspective.
It’s a fantastic setting and great day out. One needs to be quite focused on approach, there is so much going on, distractions everywhere.
Tip: Don’t go on a photo-shoot with friends unless they too are photographers. Its just too distracting. You will enjoy yourself more, but may end up with slightly less images than required.
