As promised, here are are the lads from the Colonial Faire at Riley’s Farm in Oak Glen from a few weeks ago. I’m not thrilled about the sharpness in some of these, but short of walking into the middle of the demonstrations, it’s the best I could do. Now I understand why people have such huge lenses when they do this sort of thing outside of a studio. But I’m still learning. As I mentioned when I posted the pictures of the Lasses, the lighting was terrible. Basically, mid-day. So I had to do quite a bit of photoshop fuckery to get the pictures even remotely viewable. You’ll see what I mean. Shadows are terrible in places and over saturation is rampant. Doesn’t help that I edited these on my laptop…which seems to show pictures a bit brighter than my desktop, so a few of these are a little dark.. But I tried.
I decided to break them up into Brits and Colonials. First, the Brits. They started off the day with an inspection of course.
