In my new series, I am at the National Multicultural Festival. For three days earlier this month, food stalls, dance and music filled the city centre.
In this shot, you see the unique dance moves, colours and rhythms of the Bougainville Bamboo Band from Papua New Guinea.
This shot proved to be my favourite image of 2013. In low light, I love the sharpness I was able to achieve. Strong vivid colours as well. I feel I did well to capture the naturalness of the performer. With stage events, is difficult to anticipate all the moves and frame a shot for best results. Here, I am very pleased with the way the hand gestures contribute to the overall impact of the composition.
