A week ago I posted a bunch more photos from Star Wars Weekend to get people in the mood for the impending Star Wars Celebration VI in Orlando.

A guest having fun while waiting for the parade to begin.Killing time, having fun
Jedi Master Shaak Ti.This time with flash
Is this the infamous TK-421?Vader's right-hand man
For most of these parade shots, I tried a new (for me) technique: I used the 70-200 2.8 lens wide open, mounted a four-stop ND filter and used a flash set for high-speed sync. I think it killed some of the worst shadows caused by the terrible sun angle while keeping the shallow depth of field of the wide aperture.
