|Kukeri marching down the street of Pernik with their bells slowly bouncing up in down in rhythmic unison|
These photos were all taken with available light and no flash. I was lucky enough to sneak past the barrier to take many of these shots. As the participants marched by me I attempted to use AI Servo mode to auto-focus on their bodies. I quickly realized that this would be unsuccessful, so I switched back to One Shot mode and took my chances. I also played around with some post production vignetting which really seemed to enhance many of the photos and draw the eye to the subject. Enjoy the photos and as always, please feel free to leave constructive comments below.
