Photoshoot in the style of Ivan Kupala

Date of publication: 21 Nov 2010

If you already watched me on channel 27th, you already partially saw this photoset and what preceded it. For the rest I will tell you again.

Before the night of Ivan Kupala on our Monastery island have been organized a celebration of this holiday. We have invited the band "Haydamaky", invited people who are fond of ethnic activities, like shooting a real bow, wreath making, etc. At the festival it was quite fun, but I like the photographer was not fun to shoot something artistic, because everywhere I turned my camera everywhere there were people in the background. And OK b if the Ukrainian outfits, so to speak in the style of the holiday, but no, ordinary people, in ordinary clothes. They knocked the whole picture of the General mood. So I decided after a few days to arrange their own holiday of Ivan Kupala.

I invited few girls and went with them out of city. They took a embroidered shirts, skirts, and all day long they spent there before the night of Ivan Kupala. Wreaths, jumping over the fire, walked. What came out of it you can see below.
