Photo Challenge:
The challenge for the photo walk is to look for images that will look great in black & white (or sepia). With the volunteers dressed in replica clothing, drills, the fort, and artillery demonstrations, there should be plenty of opportunities for great black & white images!!! After the photo walk, please upload only black & white images for this event to BMP website.

For those who don't do post processing of their images (Photoshop, Lightroom, Aperture, Elements, Picasa, Gimp, etc), just about all digital cameras have the ability to shoot in black & white from a menu in your camera. If you're not sure how to do it, check your manuals, the web, or post a question on the message board.

P.S. There is also a great view of the Baltimore City / Harbor from Fort Mchenry...bring your tripods!

    Alright....Mother nature has been kind to those who are's not quite as hot as yesterday. But since its still pretty hot, please remember to wear loose fitting clothes, bring plenty of water, sunblock, etc. If you have any health issues that could surface due to the heat, please use due diligence in deciding whether or not to participate in the Photo walk. See you there!!
