Isolating Subjects

I went to Atlanta’s Renaissance Festival this morning with the thought that it would be a great opportunity to take some photos. My problem became that it was too much of an opportunity; there was so much going on around me that I wasn’t able to identify and isolate single subjects amid the flurry of colors, characters and oddities.

I suppose a veteran photographer is able to parse through all of these inputs and quickly capture one subject after another. I’m not there yet.
