Skeletons, painted faces, marigolds, votive candles, altars and sugar skulls are all part of the Day of the Dead. A Day when ancestors and dead relatives are honored and remembered. Despite the somber name it is a joyous event accompanied by lively music. We will follow the parade as it wends its way through the Mission, home to many folks from Latin American countries where this tradition originates from.
The procession starts at 7pm at finishes up at Garfield Park where many altars are set up. Great opportunity for people photography and learning how to use your flash off-camera. I will show how to use OCF, both wirelessly or as a "strobe on a rope". Great opportunity to learn about long exposures with flash.
