Some from a performance art festival
Posted By: rparmar, 01-28-2009, 05:32 AM

I keep meaning to post images from my rather new K20D. This set is from the Excursions Performance Festival, held this past weekend in Limerick, Ireland. The FA Limiteds came in handy in the low light environments. First three are from the FA43, last one from FA77. I tried to use different styles and methods to suit the photos to the performances.

I layered a couple of images to capture a sense of movement. Traditional Irish singing... while bouncing on a trampoline! By Aine O'Dwyer.

uncomfortable conversation
Performance by Elena Bezborodova in front of video projection.

circle walker
A multi-hour ritualistic performance by Kenny McBride.

the weaver
Eva Weaver and her red wool embellishment to an established bridge over the Abbey River. In some ways she was a personification of her piece, so I tried to make this more like a portrait.

More on Flickr. You can click through each image to get there. Thanks for looking.

Nice series! The last two are my favorites, but all are truly interesting images.

Thanks for the comments!

FYI, all shots were hand-held with the K20D. There was an official photographer with a tripod, but somehow I imagine his attempts will be more prosaic.
