Stone Mountain Indian Festival & Pow Wow

The Stone Mountain Indian Festival & Pow Wow is an annual fall event that is scheduled for Saturday 11-2 and Sunday 11-3. The Festival opens at 10 AM both days with performances starting with the Grand Entrance at 1 PM. Dancers and Drummers from all over the country will be performing and competing for prizes in several categories all afternoon. There are lots of displays and vendors featuring Native American arts and crafts. Though the dance action takes place in an open arena, some of the best shooting opportunities are of people and costumes throughout the site. Photographers are welcome, but as the dances and costumes are important cultural traditions it is proper to ask permission to photograph individuals. You'll be shooting hand-held with standard and medium tele lens to about 200 mm. A monopod might come in handy. The hardest part of getting the best shots is separating the Dancers from the very busy background.  The entrance fee for the Festival is $15.00 plus the normal $10.00 park fee. I'll be there at 11 on Saturday and look forward to seeing lots of friends. As usual, you are welcome to call my cell with questions at[masked]-4734.  Jack Martin
