Photographing “Pop In Porto”

On Saturday September 13th happened the 5th edition of Pop in the City, the urban adventure race for women in Europe. This time it was taking place in Porto (Portugal) and besides visiting the city it was fun to be part of it as a photographer. The event started at 8am in the morning fog of the Rio Douro and ended at night on a private sand beach resort. Demanding, but rewarding…

During the event I had the chance to photograph the participants rappelling from the roof of a 70m tower, to visit the kitchen of a Portuguese restaurant cooking “Francesinha”, and to take wonderful portraits in front of the sunset at the beach. Oh and of course,  hundreds of smiling faces…

The pictures from the 3 photographers can be seen on the official Flickr of Pop in the City, and and a small selection of mine in my portfolio.

How to protect your gear at a color festival

Shooting at a color festival is a great occasion top take beautiful portraits, but you must be aware that the color powder is a threat for your lens and camera.  The powder is as fine as flour and will enter through any gap or unsealed join. It is in fact made of rice or corn flour so at least it is not harmful for yourself.  In this article I provide advices to keep your equipment perfectly clean and safe during such an event.

I also invite you to have a look at the pics I took during color festival. I show a limited selection on this website but you can see the full album on my Flickr : https://www.flickr.com/photos/damienfournier/sets/72157646901592626/

Photographs from the Holi Fusion Festival in Eindhoven

The last week end I had the opportunity to shoot for the Holi Fusion Festival in Eindhoven. The Holi fusion is a music festival inspired by the Indian Holi festival, where people throw color powder at each other.

This was a unique opportunity for colorful portraits and party pictures, and a great fun to be there as a photographer. So I literally took hundreds of portraits, exhausted my battery and filled my memory card. I show a limited selection on this website but you can see the full album on my Flickr : https://www.flickr.com/photos/damienfournier/sets/72157646901592626/

Also in a following article I will describe how you can protect you photography equipment during such an event.
