I photographed this little 6-year old girl at the Jember Fashion Carnaval in Jember, Indonesia. One day during this remarkable festival children are the highlight, and their pretty faces become the canvases on which family members or friends paint and decorate all kinds of amazing designs. Sometimes the kids are so small that the costumes they wear are two or three times their size. The VIP pass my wife obtains allows my photo tour group to go behind the scenes and take these intimate closeups as the children are being prepared for the main parade when they dance through the streets of the town to blaring disco music. It's one of the most photogenic events I've ever seen. My settings for this portrait were 1/100, f/6.3, 640 ISO, and I used a 70-200mm medium telephoto.
