It’s Showtime @ Great British Circus Malaysia
I can’t remember when was the last time I went to the circus in Kuala Lumpur, but I was glad to see some excellent performances at the Great British Circus near Plaza Arkadia, Desa Park City. I was actually planning to take some photos so I was excited and booked the ticket online for VIP lane in advance, getting myself VIP lane 2.
I do have a good view from my seating, but I still think the first lane has the best view of the entire circus performance if you want to take clearer photos and be near the subjects.
I wanted to take some photos with my camera at the circus but I wasn’t so sure at first if I will be able to bring a digital camera to the show. So, I directly message and asked Great British Circus on Facebook if I am allowed to bring a digital camera. The answer is yes, I am allowed to bring my digital camera to the show! I was so happy to hear this and quickly bought the VIP lane ticket.
It was an amazing 2 hours circus performance of aerial shows, aerobatics, BMX and bike stunts, and don’t forget about the clowns that keep you entertained as well.
Most of the performances at Great British Circus were shot without any RAW files as I was only shooting in SOOC JPEG, so I am unable to edit any of the photos. But I still like the results of the circus photos I took because they look like a movie scene shot on camera. These photos are taken with the Nomadic Mood recipe for Fujifilm cameras. Although there is film grain added, I still love it. I was shooting with my Fujinon XF35mm F2 R WR, much better if I have a zoom lens.
How I wish I could be on the first lane. I can say I am struggling with low-light photography during the aerial shows. I’ve set my camera settings to AF-C and manual mode but still get motion blur. Probably it’s my shutter speed need to go higher during the fast-paced scenes.
Great British Circus is the best attraction for a family outing and worth spending quality time with your loved ones. If you haven’t been to the show before, I would recommend you experience it at least once. Worth it. I really enjoyed the show and these images are amazing in my opinion and I love it. Hopefully, I will be able to come back for the next Great British Circus in Malaysia, I mean in Kuala Lumpur. Looking forward to it.
