cloning out Mathew Brady there but I just couldn't find it in my heart...
i'm curious if you thought about asking any of these people to model for you while there... bet they would eat that up??? its just a lot of these shots contain, hmmm lets call em civilians lol... and I think they hurt the shots..
WeLL I had planned one time to join the venders. Haul one of those gypsy medicine show wagons down to the reenactments on a trailers. Roll it off to the vender area. Spend the weekend with my old view type cameras and a black bag and some paper cut up for negs. Just set up an old time portrait shoot for the re enactors in their costumes.
I almost had my drivers license snatch by my wife, my doctor, and the NC Highway patrol. So we all compromised, no driving more than ten miles from home.
As for that day, there was too much going on. I couldn't get to the place before the crowds or stay after. That is the best time to shoot them after the show is over. Alas I'm at the mercy of other folks with better eyes and coordination. So I shoot what I can. Some of the shots don't have tourist and those I can use one way and some do, those I can use for a different purpose.
This particular one I find amusing so I left him in.
