I have shared the first round of my portraits from the Holi 2012 Festival of Color here. There are a lot of them. I may need to learn the art of self-editing. I’m too thrilled not to share. If you click the image, it will take you to the gallery page. From there, click the thumbnails to see larger versions of the images.
I’m really happy with how these turned out, given that I don’t normally take photos of people. The event removed a lot of personal barriers for me around the dynamics of approaching people with a giant lens and was a great way to ease into event photography.
The above shot warmed my heart in about 900 ways. She stood still for me to get several frames and I love her infectious smile. I also thought about Leta and Marlo. I think I’m going to try to take them to one of these. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
Daily affirmation (late today, I know!): Positivity isn’t bad. It is big.
