Powwow Time (llots of images)
1

My favorite event to attend and photograph is a powwow. I had the joy of attending the 100th Annual Meskwaki Powwow recently. From a photography standpoint it was rough going with a combination of thin clouds alternating with thick clouds, a bright white surface, and glaring aluminum bleachers. Normally the powwow is held at the traditional grounds with grass, less glaring bleachers and plenty of trees as background. I found myself thinking how FF, with less DOF than my 40-150 f4-5.6 and wider DR than my E520 , would have made life easier during PP. Also, the dance circle is much bigger at this alternate site, so I was further from the dancers than usual, which meant I had to do more cropping.

I had just installed Topaz Clarity and Topaz Detail 3, and found that the control these two plug ins gave me in adjusting contrast and sharpness to be a great help.

Good news is I finally have the 50-200 on order, and should get it Monday!

If, in my lifetime, I will have produced just one image that makes a real difference in the life of another, I will have achieved my highest goal as a photographer.
