This first sets of photos has not theme, there are just miscellaneous street photos of various night debaucheries of the very first parade. Yet, the closer will we get to Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday on Feb. 16) the more I will try to focus on a particular subject matter practicing a particular theme to my photos. I just think although a photo essay on New Orleans’ Carnival may seem such a large topic, it can be narrowed down to something unique and “off the beaten path of photography.” I just have yet to find it. I count to do so the more I get to know the town.
For now I have been working on shadowing Chris Bickford’s (the photographer I came down here to assist) in all of his moves behind the camera absorbing like a sponge how to diversify my photography from others.
