I always try to attend the Spokane Falls Northwest Market, Encampment, and PowWow which happens at the end of August each year in downtown Spokane, Washington. It is held for 4 days in Riverfront Park which was traditional fishing grounds centuries ago for the Spokane Tribe.
I have many traditional PowWow photos from years past. So many that I felt like trying to do something different this year. Something that was aided by the low light conditions of the evening dancing competitions. So, after taking some more traditional photos and candid type shots.
I decided to let the low light, fast moving dancers, situation create a “painterly” effect and go impressionistic in style when it came to my photos. I was pleasantly surprised by the results and they really appeal to the artist within.
