    I went to a relatively new ren fair and had a good time, for the most part. I was asked several times about my cameras (they have a sign reading no commercial photography) and a run-in with a "press photog" who seemed insistant on walking in front of me, but the acts were good and I have learned some more things about photography in the process. It's a little different shooting style than I'm used to, but that's what makes it interesting.

    Thanks. This guy had a problem, no doubt. He worked for a small paper and even though he had a D3, 24-70 and 70-200VR, I'll bet my shots are better!!
     
  4. Nice series.

    That bay horse looks really enthused to be jousting. :tongue:

    Nice shots. As for the obnoxious photog: "The bee is such a busy soul, he has no time for birth control, and that is why in times like these, there are so many SONS OF BEES!!":biggrin:
    Unfortunately, jerks like him walk among us!:eek:
