Pechanga Powwow 2012 (2 of 2)
Canon 5D Mark III, 70-200mm f/4 IS USM at 200mm, f/16 for 1/50 at ISO 100
The second powwow shot featuring the male performer was done with the lens racked out to 200mm to get as tight of a composition as possible. An aperture of f/16 was used to get a slow enough shutter speed to convey motion. It took numerous frames to get the right combination of sharpness in the performer’s face, the sense of motion of his body and colorful regalia. The 6 fps of the 5D Mark III certainly came in handy in making this shot.
