Wow, amazing image and colors!
thank you so very much!
This is a wonderful series of photos, Cyndi. I sometimes encourage my Chippewa wife to dress in such garb, but she doesn’t do it.
oh but she should! the women were so lovely, just beauty
I bet they were! Just to clarify, “my Chippewa wife” isn’t as opposed to, say, my other wives. She’s the only one! I really should have worded that differently…
oops, and i missed that one! glad you clarified that!
Great picture. Was this taken at the Indian Steps Powwow in Pennsylvania?
yes, yes it was! did you happen to get a chance to go?
Yes, I went on Sunday and took some pictures too. Mine aren’t as nice as yours though.
Do you live in Pennsylvania?
Thank you for your comment! I live in Maryland, so about an hour’s drive. I went Saturday, so we just missed each other. I really enjoyed myself there!
Glad you had a good time. It was a nice Powwow. I’m going to another Powwow next month.
Are you Native American?
no, i’m not at all, but i appreciate the beauty of the culture and have been to several powwow’s and will continue to go. i feel so at peace when i’m there
Outstanding! I enjoyed that quite a bit.
thank you so very much Phil!
les couleurs sont superbes
thank you very much!
I looked through all your posts. You have potential. I am curious what sort of editing software you use in your work? Keep posting, keep shooting. – Bob
thank you for you kindness, i rarely edit, relying on my camera for the shots, only when i need to adjust, i use basic edits.
That’s what I thought. Thanks for responding. 🙂
however i welcome sugguestions!
I am all about color, so I can very much appreciate the beautifully exposed color in the native costumes.
thank you for you kind comment!
I was thinking of you today as I went out for a shoot. I wish I had an apprentice with your eye & enthusiasm. I love to teach. I’ve taken my best friend out attempting to show him how to compose & look for the right light but it’s just not in him. He’s rather snap cellphone pics where he doesn’t have to do anything. Photography is just not his bag.
I have a great niece in South Carolina that is a struggling professional photographer. I now live 3,000 away from her and can only offer advice. Keep the faith I’ve heard it said you don’t start getting good until you’ve taken 10,000 frames. The saying simply means that with each shot you take away a bit of knowledge that brings you closer to the artist you aspire to become. Stick with it. – Bob
thank you so much Bob, i think that is the most wonderful compliment i could receive. I do have an art background. i have also seen in others that either they have an innate knowledge of composure and lighting or they don’t, i’m not sure it’s something easily taught. i see what i want and learn my camera to get the best shot i can. does it always work? of course not! i’m my worst critic!
your photos are an inspiration to me, and so are you! i will keep on keeping on, and look forward to your critiques!
I had a revelation shooting an old shed today. I had my new Sony NEX-5n camera with me. After taking the shot and posting it on a photographic forum the moderator laughed and said I had posted the exact same shot months ago. It was taken with my Nikon D800 but the framing, light & composition were identical. It would seem I am consistant. 🙂
consistency is what i strive for, but haven’t found yet. oh but i will 🙂
Is this native Americans. The colours are amazing. Nicely captured photo, movement and composition is well balanced.
Great colours Cyndi. Thanks for liking my blog.
thank you kindly!
this picture is so alive, i actually feel the action in it.
i’m very happy you feel that way! thank you
Beautiful and vibrant! Thank you for liking my blog.
thank you! and you’re welcome 🙂
Striking, vibrant photo, with movement, clarity and well the colors are just fun!
I love the vibrance of the colors. Really lovely.
he was amazing with his colors, that’s what caught my attention, and thank you!
Cyndi: Brilliant color and compostion.
Indian Steps 4 is an amazing photo. Thank you for the like of my post “House and Garden”.
thank you! and you’re very welcome!
Fantastic detail and colour saturation.
The clarity in this is great – particularly when the subject is moving. What camera are you using?
my little canon 550D, and thank you!
