Summary - page 5 1993 Carnival in Rio

May 1998 - Front Coversee the cover picture in all its glory

It is of course a very big satisfaction for me to have my pictures published on a magazine so famous and followed as Popular Photography is, so I would like you people to go read the article written by senior editor Peter Kolonia. There you will find good hints on how to come home with neat pictures on your "Rio de Janeiro carnival trip", or good tips on how to shoot under fluorescent lights (typical stadium lighting).
