Fort Greene Park located in Brooklyn hosts one of the best dancing events in New York City. Annually twice a year in the months of July and August, Soul Summit sponsors a mid-afternoon til dusk dance party. The thumping and beating sounds of afro-beats and house music were just as good as it could possibly get. Hundreds of folks expressing themselves through dance as the music permeated their souls.
I look forward to photographing this event each year. But this year I was able to capture some exceptional images using my Nikon D810 and Nikkor 85mm lens. This combination paired well, as I usually use a zoom lens for events like this. There is something special about a photograph when using a prime lens. I am happy with the creamy backgrounds I am able to achieve with them.
My eyes are drawn to the folks dressed in colorful and stylish garments and I look for the unique expressions upon each face. They say the eyes are the windows to one's soul and I seek to zero in on them. There is nothing in the world like the human expression and what a privilege it is for me to be able to share it.
Here are some images from the August Soul Summit 2018. I hope you will enjoy them as I try to communicate the vibe of this spectacular dance event.
