Today was the Dia de los Muertos at Escondido's California Center for the Arts, it is a much smaller but more heartfelt event, with real Dia art at the museum, a multitude of little real altars and a Dance presentation at the large theater.
I have over 1000 photos which will not be ready for a couple of weeks. Used the best MF event lens, the 50-300mm 4.5 ED ais, I do own the 80-200mm 2.8 ED ais, I like the 50-300 better for this use and it gets me great resuls.
Here is a sample, the one at the bottom, if you are curious about the lens it is in Flicr at full size, have to shoot this at iso 3200 which results in excellent but not natural looking images once processed.
