Dancers at Festivals Acadiens et Créoles, Oct. 16, 2016
This photo set features shots of dancers at Festivals Acadiens et Créoles in Lafayette’s Girard Park, including several shots previously uploaded taken Friday evening Oct. 14, 2016, and shots from Oct. 15 and 16. After photographing a band, I glance across the dance area and, if I see anything that looks photographically promising, I try to take a few quick shots of dancers before leaving to head to another stage. In the limited time I have, it’s often not easy to find suitable lighting (mid-day lighting is typically too harsh) and couples whose dance moves and facial expressions combine to make decent photographs.
