I'm currently in Rio de Janeiro for carnival where I will be attending carnival at the Sanbodromo. I have a Nikon D3000 with a 55-300 lens. I'll be around 50 to 100 meters away, overlooking the procession.
I'm an amateur photographer, but I would be remiss to waste such a wonderful chance by setting my camera to auto. Can anyone offer me any tips on the type of settings I should be using to produce colourful, vibrant, and bright photos?
The procession is fully flood-lit, and the performers form a cacophony of bright, vibrant colours. On some occasions there will be fast movement.
