The Newcastle China Street Festival is one of many programmed events during the Newcastle China Week. The Street Festival is a celebration of Chinese Culture. China Week consists of a Business Forum, Night Hawker Food Markets, the Street Festival and, stage and theatre productions to bring a greater understanding of the Chinese culture to the people of Newcastle.
A street festival is a great opportunity for a photographer to get out there amongst the people. I find that people are more willing to have their photos taken at a street festival than they are about having them taken at other times when they are just going about their daily business.
I took my Canon 600D with me. I had intended to shoot with my 50mm prime but, I decided to change to a Tamron 18-270mm f3.5 zoom as it gave me a lot more leeway with my shooting. The Tamron has done an excellent job as you will see. I shot in Aperture Priority mode which allowed me to have a quicker response to those unique moments that are gone in seconds.
For these photos, I edited in Lightroom using Nik Collection Plug-ins; Colour Efex Pro and Silver Efex Pro.
