Tan-ok Fest in B&W
We attended the event late because I was out of town, had a little family trip and the moment we arrived home, Eric and I went to the stadium to watch and shoot the festival.
Tan-ok Fest is a first in the province. Also known as the “festival of festivals,” each town from the province showcased their own festive celebrations through dancing, dancing, and more dancing. It was a super colorful event and I’m super glad Eric and I was able to enter despite the thick crowd. Others couldn’t even get in anymore but thankfully, we had photographer passes reserved earlier days before the event. Another purpose why we went to watch was to mingle with our fellow photographer friends but because we arrived late, we never ever found them. Haha! Good thing I was able to stay in front, had a wonderful view of the participants before Eric had to leave for a gig.. and I left alone when it was almost about to end because I was super hungry. Haha!
Anyway, I think i’m taking a risk with these photos. The event was so colorful but i was overwhelmed with how the dancers were perfectly lit! I hope you enjoy my takes of the Tan-ok fest.. and i’m serving ’em to you in black and white.
