Powwow season comes to a close for the year, as we cover our own Southern Ute Tribal Fair & Powwow and the Council Tree Powwow to the North. Each represented by it’s own photo essay in the Southern Ute Drum newspaper: Enter Here.
The above photograph was taken using available light as dancers entered the arena for Grand Entry. The often times difficult backlighting seen here, created an impressive glow, and set these images apart from the rest. The trick was to angle myself in just such a way as to avoid the light directly, and thus avoid any solar flare in the camera lens. The subsequent color and contrast in this image, give it a timeless feel!
Hope you enjoy…Cheers, Jeremy
