San Francisco Carnaval 2019

Just an experiment in event photography. All shot with the Tamron 70-200/2.8 DI LD
All at f/4. Many are quite heavily cropped.

I was trying for "portrait" photography in a challenging situation, that is, catching the moment where a bit of character shows.

This is very much like sports photography, where one is heavily dependent on the AF speed and the quality of the lens. To give myself a better chance I went for f/4, for a bit more DOF.
The Tamron 70-200 is a very sharp lens, and has accurate AF, but the AF speed on the Pentax K3 is not ideal for this sort of thing. The latest camera-lens combos have almost magic AF speed.

Carnaval at the end of May is odd, but this is San Francisco and one must take the weather into account. This place is not tropical. It has also turned into a sort of pan-Latino festival, with contigents of all the peoples from Mexico to Chile.

Note that that day the temperature was around 60F/15-16C, so consider the endurance and hardiness of all these dancers along a four-hour route.
