Megetsu Taiko Festival

Filed under: photography — Tags: , , , — richard @ 8:21 am

Last weekend, I spent 3 days shooting 4 Taiko concerts – the 2nd annual Meigetsu (Harvest Moon) festival. Each concert is different,
with may be a dozen groups altogether. ISO1600, 1/40 @F2 is not uncommon. I just keep remembering Ted Grant’s words – “if you can see
it, you can shoot it.” I shot ~6000 frames, for the performers, I culled them down to ~1200. Obviously the complete set is only of  interest to the performers.

I culled 72 of my favorites. Perhaps you would enjoy them:
