Fells Point and the Privateer Festival
Drum and fife corp from Fort McHenry
The workshop group had good fun in Fells Point this morning. The Privateer Festival is happening. In the early morning we made the usual water reflection and harbor shots but as the morning wore on the costumed Privateers started arriving. I helped the group find shots and work with their camera settings. Everyone enjoyed capturing images of the people, even when a few said they didn't photograph people...the Privateers changed everything. The Festival runs through Sunday so if you can get down there, I suggest you check it out! The harsh sun was difficult to work with but we grab some shots anyway. I decided to process all the images here with Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 using the Antique Plate II filter, then in OnOne perfect effects I added the faux emulsion borders. All images were captured with the Nikon D4 fitted with a 28-300mm lens.
