CHIPPEWA DANCER, LAC VIEUX DESERT, MICHIGAN, AUGUST 10, 2013

Photographing busy and colorful dancers at the annual traditional powwow of the Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians is always difficult because of the equally busy and colorful backgrounds. Opening up the lens to the biggest f-stop to blur the background more would have helped some. All the same, the beatific expression of the dancer, in my opinion, makes the picture.
