This street performer was part of the annual Moomba parade yesterday afternoon. Apart from the amazing wig and make-up, you can just about notice a green teapot attached to the hairpiece and a teacup attached to the shoulder.
It’s very difficult shooting street performers, because they move in all directions and seldom stay still enough for a clear shot. Marchers, however, move in a steady linear direction – so they’re much easier to shoot.
The crowd where I was standing was about four or five deep, so I was lucky to get this unimpeded shot. Moomba, by the way, is the annual carnival celebrated at the start of the Australian autumn.
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 70-300mm lens. F8, 1/180 sec, ISO 200, focal length 300mm.
