http://www.google.com... This is a great opportunity to test your photography skills in portrait and events photography. Your mock assignment for this event is to pretend you are doing a major photo spread for National Geographic. By the way, this is also a perfect opportunity to test fill-in flash techniques (get a feel for lightening up shadows on the actors faces, experiment, experiment, experiment) Look for the interesting perspective, go for the unusual shot and after it is all done, we will meet for a meal (details coming later) and have turns viewing the pictures on a laptop with a card reader. We will even touch up some of the pictures in Photoshop to see how post processing can improve our pictures. For the more experienced photographers, here is a opportunity to share some of your photography techniques and experiences with those of less experience.

    The Renaissance festival has a long NY tradition and is very well organized but very crowded. I am more of a landscape/nature photographer so it was hard for me to deal with the crowd.

    I think its a great experience. I happen to love that particular period in history so this is perfect for me. This was my second time attending. I saw a lot of friends there. I took ten times the amount of photos than I did last year.

    Since there were so much going on & lots of photo subject, it was so easy to get lost from the group. Definitely the timetable you sent day before helped alot.
