Focusing on festivals

Festivals are all about colors, fun and people. There will be performers, parades, pageantry, costumes and choreography. You wouldn’t want to miss out on the action. They can be grand national events, large cultural showcases or small community ocassions. Nevertheless, a festive situation affords the photographer lots of subjects to focus on. It is a visual feast for the shooter. Outdoor photographer Michael Lynch offers some simple advice on how to get that good festival shot including getting down low, getting up close, taking a vantage point, using zoom and pan, and if possible being right there with the performers. These are detailed in his article Photography Tips – How to Capture Festivals. People are always interesting subjects. Taking pictures of them in colorful and animated public celebrations provide the photographer a fun experience, a¬†chance to play around and experiment with his shots.
