The Traveling Camera: Native American Portraits

Photos of Warm Springs tribal members by Christian Heeb.

We went to the Pow Wow in Warm Springs hoping to create some portraits of the attending dancers. I have been shooting Indian country for more than 20 years, so this time I tried to create a studio situation right on the field. We put up a black background that I latched to a Pepsi truck and used a silver reflector to light up the dancers. I used the natural light from the west to back light the feathers of the costumes. We had a blast taking pictures and were pleased that no one turned our request for photos down...thank you Warm Springs.
