I am taking my daughter to the state fairgrounds tonight for a hot air ballon "night glow" event. This is where at dusk they inflate the ballons but do not launch them, so everyone can walk around and gaze and ooh and ahh at the huge illuminated balloons. I am hoping my daughter will have fun and think it's neat, and I think it is an opportunity to get some interesting shots. I am looking for some advice on settings and gear to take with me. The gear I have is a d40x, sigma 30 1.4, 10-20, 18-50 2.8, 50-150 2.8, and nikon 70-300 VR, and a tripod. I checked with the organizers, and tripods are allowed. People can view the balloons from the grandstands, or they can walk around the infield and get close to the balloons. The event starts at "dusk", and I plan to get there a bit early to scope out good places to view the balloons from. As far as gear, I plan to leave the 70-300 at home, since the balloons are not going to be going away from me and I don't think I will need the range. I can manage to take the other lenses, but it would be nice to leave one or even two at home. If you were going to take 2 or 3 of the other 4 lenses with you to something like this, what would you take? As far as settings, I am just looking for advice on what type of settings to use, where to meter off of, etc. Anything that a novice hobby photographer wouldn't think of! Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide!
