Philadelphia Lantern Festival / by traci A delisser

I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot portraits at the philadelphia Lantern Festival last week. It was a magical experience, worth experiencing at least once in a lifetime. Words can't describe the awe and reverence of the event. 

My friend Abena, came along to be my "model" and while shooting at dark without a flash in order to retain the ambient light was a challenge, I am proud of the photos.
