Soon the popular celebrations will take place in Matanzas, with changes in the location of the carnival dancing groups and floats trips due to the restoration of the city for its 325 anniversary.
The carnivals, as the population calls them, are a challenge for the photographer when he must work at night: the lighting is deficient, everyone is in motion. Optics with minimum diaphragms of f2.8 are required to achieve well-exposed images.
The telephoto lenses in this case are not as important as the fixed focal lengths of 50 mm, for example. The present selection covers from 2013 to 2015 and in it we can appreciate the joy and color that characterizes our carnival.
