Here we may need to capture images of fast moving objects such as racing cars or much slower moving objects. In general, zoom lenses can be an advantage as it will allow for the subject to be captured at varying distances, also a fast lens with an apreture of f/2.8 may be of advantage to utilise fast shutter speeds. Effective images can be made at night time using a tripod and leaving the shutter open for several seconds to capture light trails of the moving lights from transport.
The balloon is first inflated using a fan, then the burners are fired up to warm up the air, everyone is loaded on board and then lift off after several minutes of heating the air. A vibration reduction or image stabilised lens is very suitable for photography from a balloon to reduce any camera movement. I used a 24-120mm lens for the images.
