Going to shoot carnival pictures with two photographic systems as different as the 35mm and panorama at the same time, is asking for trouble.

Because you end up walking, running, fighting for space in a crowd for days like a photographic Christmas tree, with cameras hanging from all over.


And also because of the dynamics and state of mind of shooting with the regular 24x36 camera (3:2 format) are very different from panorama (22:9 proportion).

But panorama is only marginal here, as it was mostly a test I made in very extreme circumstances.
