Reenactments: Unique Opportunities for Images

I love photographing most any subject, but reenactments give us a unique opportunity to photograph days gone by. I recently spent 2 weeks at a reenactment in PA. My friends and I have an encampment of white tents and colorful banners. We step back in time to the Middle Ages of Europe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Look for portraits of interesting individuals with unique clothing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fighting or ceremonies make for nice imagery. Here is a shot from a rapier bout.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also a shot from Court with the current King and Queen, yes there is even royalty!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s a different look from the everyday 21st century. Enjoy capturing a bit of yesteryear!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This type of event is only accessible to members of the group however there are many public options out there. The Maryland Renaissance Faire is coming up this fall. Also there are tons of Civil War battles such as Gettysburg. Don’t forget about airshows and World War II reenactments as well. Enjoy shooting!
