Clowning Around with Animations

stage band, musicians, chondara, dancing, clowns

They Aren't Really Clowns



The two characters dancing in this seen are called chondara or, gajan-gani.

Sort of comical, they play an important role in Eisa dancing.

 Chasing mosquitoes away, making folks laugh and passing around drinks is hard work.

So, I thought it would be nice, to make a GIF of the energetic characters.

Another GIF at the Closing of the Festival


fireworks, gif

 Watching Eisa and, trying to get images of each group, can be lots of fun.

Hopefully, no team was missed and, I'll be processing photos throughout this week.

Shooting hanabi (fireworks) like this was, a first, for me.

No tripod was used.  Sitting on a rock, I propped the camera steady on my knees.

Continuous shooting mode was used to take the 6 photos in this animation.

The clowning around part -- I wasn't sure a GIF could be created with the images.

It worked alright.  Now, it's time for me to go clown around somewhere out of this office !
