Confetti frenzy

Last Sunday I was a bit down with inspiration and didn’t feel too much like taking my camera and go out shooting. But it was a perfect sunny day, ones of those days you can feel spring is just around the corner… and I also had an assignment for my photographic group, so there was no way I could not take advantage of such a perfect weather.

The theme? Carnival. I admit I would have preferred something different as I am not very fond of carnivals (the only exception is Venice Carnival, which is enchanting), but I had accepted a challenge with myself to step out of my comfort zone. Despite nature’s call I went to a carnival in a nearby town, ready to push myself further and find new inspiration.

I spent a few funny hours, and in the end I was satisfied with the shots I had taken. I couldn’t move much because of the crowd, so I stayed in the same place all the time. I found it quite useful, as I was forced to look at what was around me from different perspectives and angles. Obviously, people passing by and all the carnival floats were a source of constant photographic opportunities.

Since that afternoon I’ve started feeling more self confident when it comes to experiment something new (can a single afternoon have such a power? Oh yes, it can!). I look at those photos and even though I see where I did something wrong I am very well pleased with them. After all mistakes are made to learn. :)
