RenFest Warrior

On Saturday I went with a group of photographers from the Bay Area Photo Club to the 2009 Texas Renaissance Festival in Plantersville, Texas. The weather was great and it worked out that there were plenty of costumed characters more than willing to cooperate with folks who where inclined to take photos. This fellow was one of my favorites.

Title: "RenFest Warrior"

Shot Data: 1/60s f/3.5 at 50.0mm iso125
Camera / Lens: Canon 40D / Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 zoom
Flash: Canon 430EX (w/ CTO gel) on a monopod triggered by Pocket Wizard

OMG, that is really scary...why do his teeth look so REAL??? You have really filled the frame with, person and that contributes to the "in your face" feeling. I like the out of focus background too. I do wish I could see all of the sword though... but maybe not.

Those were his real teeth. I was there.

Good job capturing his expression Barry. You connected with him on another level here.

A friend of yours? Really good job matching-up the pose and the outfit. Good selection of aperture, the photo really needed a shallow depth of field. Good work.

Thanks Cindi, Doug and Patrick!

This guy was really into his character...which made my job easy!

And I'm 99% sure those are his real teeth! :-)
