Day of The Dead Photo Workshop Day 2: Teotitlan del Valle

Today, after the edit and critique from the first day of shooting we headed to Teotitlan del Valle, Oaxaca. We visited the home of a family of weavers and captured them at work. I will not deny that it was really hard for me to get good shots in this house and still believe I did not walk away with THE photo I was looking for… but then again very rarely I do 🙂

Next we went to the house of Sofi, a family that creates candles by hand. The shooting was either a bit easier or I was more in the mood, who knows… in any case the pictures that I liked the most were those of Sofi’s mother… you see and judge. Finally we went to the town’s church and got a pretty decent photo… remote indirect flash towards the cross held by lead instructor Ken Garret.

Here are the pictures… Enjoy!
