Mildura Mardi-Gras

We’re still sorting pictures from the 2011 Mildura Mardi Gras held in Mildura last night. We were shooting to a brief so didn’t have a lot of time to shoot personal pictures. Had wanted to do a series of close face shots of people enjoying themselves and participating in the event but stuff happens fast and we didn’t get much time for that. We worked three cameras for the street parade, just to give us a better chance of getting a good angle on those floats or people we need to photograph.

This is the sort of thing we wanted to capture, beautiful people having a great time and sharing some of their story with theĀ  community.

With thousands of people in attendace, and being really busy shooting photo dudes don’t get much time to look around. When we do, we sometimes find familiar faces, and of course take a photo.

Kids are especially good targets for candid photography during carnival events such as this.
