Skeletons, candles, children on the street late at night -- no this isn't Halloween -- it’s Michoacan's Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration. In this video I'll take you on a tour of this incredible place and cultural event while I cover how I created one of my favorite images of moving subjects handheld in low light. Spoiler alert: I had to leave an incredible margarita melting away to capture it. From equipment choice and settings to having the right state of mind, I'll cover how I approached this scene.
I'm headed back to Michoacan with a very small group of photographers in late October for a special, all-inclusive workshop. A last minute cancellation has left a couple of spots open. If you're interested, more details are here.
