The Sangyaw Festival Parade of Lights 2012 was the first of its kind. It was now the festival of lights that started at night rather than the usual day parade. It was a nice experience from a photographer’s standpoint. Lowlight, moving subjects, shutter speeds and high ISO came into play as major factors for the shoot. I decided to bring my 1.4 primes for this shoot, I know they would come in handy for this type of photography. I’m glad I did. F/1.4 is a 2 full-stops of light advantage over any 2.8 lens, I knew this was the way to go.
