Shooting at Hakata Gion Yamakasa Festival - 博多祇園山笠で流し撮り

Hakata Gion Yamakasa - Nakasu Nagare Panning Shot

Hakata Gion Yamakasa is one of the most famous festivals held in Fukuoka.
Though I could not go to the main event, I went to the pre-event show-off at the centre of Fukuoka Tenjin.

I tried to shoot them with using echolocation, pan my camera as hearing them pass by, bu tThe the other noise from the crowd was overwhelming, so I could not follow the prople with portable shrine... so I asked my sighted guide to turn my body (not my camera!) around as the people pass by. The result is this shot.

Since it was a cloudy day, I shot this with full manual, open aperture and 1/250 to show some movement.
