Theyyam

An ancient ritual.

A Theyyam in progress at the Muthappan temple in Parassini Kadavu, northern Kerala.

Crowds jostling for the limited space available and the low ambient light rendered this a difficult situation to photograph. But the Canon EOS 5D was a landmark camera and the image stabilization feature of the EF 24-105L lens helped. Sensor technology and processing software have come a long way since but in those days ISO 3200 was considered extreme.
