Featured Photojournalism – Drummers in a circle

Drum Festival 220707 (315).jpg

Many cultural events are being held in Malaysia In conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year 2007 and in preparation for the celebration of Malaysia’s 50th Independence Day on 31st August. This is a drum festival showcasing all the different cultures which makes up Malaysia. We can see different drumming traditions from the Indians, Chinese, Malays and the tribes of Borneo.

No flash was used in this image and I had to push the noise reduction capabilities of the 1D Mark III. Not disappointed and well worth the money. I added grain in the post-processing to give it a more ‘gritty’ look.
