CARNAVAL DE NERJA 2016

PREVIOUS / NEXT

NERJA by KRISS on 07 february 2016

With so many photos to choose from, the most difficult part of selecting a few to illustrate a post is to actually select a few.
At some point I have to do something and I can’t post 100 photos ! Kate did an amazing work of portraiture over the last 2 days which might let me decide to keep the Sigma 50mm ART which is a fabulous lens.

This is the first carnival we attend where things are not thrown at us and everyone is quite respectful of one another in spite of the large number of people in the streets of Nerja.
And it feel great ! I was able to carry around 2 cameras, one with a Sigma 35mm ART, the other one with the heavy Nikkor 70-200mm, and a backpack and I did my job with no worries at all.

As regards to the carnival in itself, it was fun, loud and if it’s not a big Carnival like the one in Nice, you feel comfy and the atmosphere is fantastic ! I just think, from a photographer’s point of view that the parade left a bit too late, there are beautiful places in Nerja, where all these costumed folks were supposed to pass through and they did, but after sunset.
I was hoping for some good light and by the time I got to the parade all I had was a dark yellow artificial light.
Never mind, my sweet wife saved the day and managed to shoot what I couldn’t as always.

I think there are about half a dozen chars and I was a bit disappointed, the San Isidro festival is a bigger fiesta in that aspect.
But in terms of costumes, people really take an amazing time preparing the carnival and whole families and groups wear themed costumes, this is really something unbelievable ! I let you discover a few shots of the « Carnaval de Nerja », and if you’re upset because you are not in them and live in Nerja, send us an email or post a comment with what costume you had, and we’ll have a look in the hundreds we have !
