Bon Odori 2013 – Part 2

Tudung and Yukata. Slow Flash and Grunge Filter.

I like how the Bon Odori Festival takes on a multi-ethnic theme, locally. The trick in photographing the Bon Odori is to dance or glide the camera alongside the circles. Move at the same pace and turn around in between to shoot.

Don’t stay in one spot to photograph, fire on the fly instead. The crowd was really enjoying themselves, it shows on their faces. Enjoy it yourself and the good shots will come naturally.

Olympus OM-D, ISO 200, f4, 1/13 sec with FL-50R flash.
