Philadelphia’s 2017 Mummers Parade.

On January 1, 2017, I exposed these photos along Philadelphia’s Broad Street of the annual Mummers parade.

Using my LX7, I set the camera in ‘A’-mode (aperture priority), which allows me to set the aperture while the camera adjusts the shutter speed.

I’ve found that to capture the spirit of a parade, using a slow shutter speed and panning puts the players in motion.

Panning also sets off the parade participants from the urban background and helps reduce the visual complexity of the environment to make for more dramatic images.

Below are a selection taken from some 500 digital images exposed on New Years Day.

TRACKING THE LIGHT SPECIAL: Dozens of Photos from Dublin’s St. Patrick’s Day-March 17, 2015

It’s been a wild and colourful (mostly green) St. Patrick’s Day in Dublin! Here’s just a few of the many photos I made with my Fuji X-T1.

Dublin’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade attracted some half million people. The other million were queuing to cross the Ha’Penny Bridge over the Liffey.
