I just got back from an amazing 3-day hoop gathering in Bend, OR and wanted to share some pics. Note they are not technical at all, and I shot very little since I was participating so much :)
I couldn't put my hoop down, but I wanted to get a couple of shots here and there.
I also have to admit I took a lot of pictures of Shakti - she was probably the first hooper I watched and I've had a major hoop crush on her ever since then and watching her dance is beyond words.

Hoops all over the place!

Had some fun processing this one :)

Lastly, a short video during the dance party which Patrick brought some of his amazing PSI hoops for us to jam with. Such a beautiful light party! And sorry for the crazy panning, I was obviously very excited!
