Carnaval Heist 2008 - School Bus
Last Sunday was a big Carnaval parade in Heist, Belgium. There were many participants all dressed in all kind of things. They all built some nice kind of decorated car. There are a few pictures to show but instead of posting every time one I bundled here two of them together. It's the first time I do that but I like it. Sometimes two images at once can be more powerful then having them separate.
It was pretty to hard to get some decent pictures. These people were constantly walking, jumping, running, partying, doing stupid and throwing confetti in my face. It feels it was harder than taking pictures of children or sports events. For the picture above of the bus with girls I was walking at the same speed to get the shot. Luckily the man with the funny glasses was posing for a second.
TECH-INFO: First I did lens corrections and local contrast improvement in DxO. In Photoshop I used an adjustment curves layer using the overlay blending mode to improve contrast and saturation. Then I added both a vignette. Finally I cropped each of them a bit and put them in one image.
Both pictures have identical exposure info except the one at the left has a shutterspeed of 1/80s.
