Dia De Los Muertos Mariachis



Dia De Los Muertos Mariachis

One of my favorite holidays is Dia de Los Muertos, a holiday celebrated through out Latin America. It is the day that the dead can cross the veil to communicate with their loved ones. It gives the living a chance to remember and talk to the ones they lost.

One of the biggest traditions during Dia de Los Muertos is a celebration of live with music, usually by a mariachi band. This was taken backstage as a mariachi group was performing through the night during the festivities. The crowd that was gathered was really enjoying the band as the dramatic light beamed down. I really wanted to take advantage of the dramatic light and shoot directly into it. The shot came out perfectly.
