Lundi Gras and Mardi Gras Day 2011

Lundi Gras and Mardi Gras Day 2011
Here are the pictures from Lundi Gras (Night) and Mardi Gras Day 2011.  The pictures taken at night were shot in manual mode at F1.4 between 1/150 to 1/250 of a second with Canon 50mm f/1.4.  This lens is great for shooting in low light when you need to capture at a fast shutter speed or if you don't have a tripod.   If you haven't checked out Mardi Gras Sunday's pictures check them out.     Lundi Gras – Monday, March 7th, 2011   Above: Flamebeaux lighting the way in Krewe of Orpheus Parade.
