Wanderlust Festival NYC
Yoga In The Park at the 2013 Wanderlust Festival in NYC
I had the pleasure to experience the and photograph the participants at the Wanderlust festival this year on the west side of Manhattan. There were so many yoga enthusiasts and practitioners that attended. There were several large class groups through out the day. Some people came for one class while others attended all of the classes.
I have photographed yoga in a studio setting many times. It is easy to concentrate on one person and get the pose and form correct. But being in an outdoor setting with so many people was very different. The challenge was great. It was nice to see my skills and way of seeing applied well to this photographic situation. I was happy with the results. Even taking 300+ photos I had a good 100 that I felt were very strong. I picked my shots and kept the surroundings in mind the entire time I was there.
Overall it was a great experience. The people at Wanderlust were great. They accommodated me and got me a bracelet/press pass so I could walk around move freely. I also gotta say the free samples of food and drink from the vendors was pretty fantastic too. Sadly I was so busy I only got to enjoy that part towards the end of the 6 hour shoot day.
Here are some of the shots from that day. =)
