Trinidad Carnival: Shooting with the Nikon D7100 (could be NSFW)

Trinidad Carnival with the Nikon D7100 NSFW
My name is Donovan Jordan (Facebook, Flickr) and I am a Barbadian photographer based in Trinidad & Tobago. I've been shooting Carnival in Trinidad for the past few years and every year presents itself as an opportunity to capture the color and beauty that is Carnival.The Trinidad & Tobago Carnival is an annual event held on the Monday and Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. I shot these all images using just a Nikon D7100 with a 35mm f/1.8G DX at f/2 (could be NSFW):

    Fabulous.

  • Love the D7100 and you have done some wonderful work with it here. And Trinidad Carnival is now on my bucket list. 🙂

  • Scott

    A nice departure from over-saturated landscapes. The 7100 w the 35 makes great images.

  • Nimloth

    Showing that it’s the subject, not the camera, that matters. 😉

      In some cases not even the photographer does matter. In some cases.

      You forgot the middle-man, the photographer ; )

      • Nimloth

        For sure, but looking at the photographer doesn’t interest me quite as much. 😉

  • silmasan

    • Donovan Jordan

    I find it amazing how much the photographic content matters more than the photographic skill, or even the photographic moment captured.

    The author of these photos has clearly shown that he thinks with his todger rather than brain or skills,
    The level of quality these pictures offer are equal to an inexperienced person who is taking snap shots down a street while on holiday. The cropping of ankles, the movement blur, the cropping of hands/knuckles in the majority of these shots are not something you would post and expect to be considered good among “artists” who claim to know what they are looking at compositionally.

    Looking at some of the positive feedback below it just demonstrates who are are the photographers that know the art, and the regulars armchair photographers who normally just comment on hardware spec on this site but know dik about making good pictures.

    • I think the point of good photography of this type of subject is to capture the mood of the place, the happiness of the parade goers and the exuberance of their costumes.

      I feel the photographer did this very well :).

    My home 🙂

  • Beso

    Uh, click bait?

    • Déjà vu Peter, lol.

      Just because it has “nsfw” in the post title ?

      • I had to do this, you have no idea what kind of complains I get, plus I said “could be”.

        • I know, I was just having a joke, reminded me about all the flak with my burlesque post.
          Comments on the internet hey ?…you can’t win.

          • Yes unfortunately, don’t blame the messenger 🙂

  • bushkov

    It’s a pity these pictures are too small 🙂

  • Zork

    Seem like only light skinned women play mas in Trinidad
