The Dancer

Once you've seen a few Bhutanese festivals, the fun thing becomes trying to photograph it from a new angle or perspective. To do that, I put a wide angle lens on the camera, set the focus to the hyper focal distance, and then basically put the camera on the ground angled up to capture the dancer as he came towards me. 

This dancer was probably only 2-3 feet from my lens when I pushed the shutter, and with the camera on the ground I could not frame the shot at all; I was relying a lot on luck for this image. All in all, it worked out well and provided a unique perspective on a traditional Bhutanese dance.
