Shiki Character Matsuri. Today at Shiki there was a special festival with lots of famous characters . This kind of big puppet are really famous here in Japan. Lots of people adult and children came to this event to meet their favorite characters. As usual I went there with my Canon 7D and the 18-135 lens. Perfect in this situation because I could take photos both close to the characters than far when lots of people between me and them.
ISO setting 320 speed vary but around 1/250 with F around 5.6
First time for this kind of shooting but interesting especially thinking about how these characters are so important in the japanese culture (more infos about it here http://www.walkerplus.com/event/ar0311e51460/)
Enjoy the photos and Stay Click!
