A couple of weeks ago we went with our niece, Sarah, to the Georgia Renaissance Festival. We try to make it out there at least once a year, and had some fun playing with light this time. There are still a few weeks left to go out to the festival, which closes on June 7. Here are some of the highlights of our day:
This lovely gargoyle greeted guests at the Georgia Renaissance Festival.
I love the eyes on this gargoyle, who was heckling visitors (in a fun way) as they entered the gates.
We rushed to the Dynamo Dogs show where Michelle captured this border collie playing with medieval frisbees.
Both the trainer and the dog were great.
This rehabilitating owl’s orange eyes can stare right through you.
We never miss the Birds of Prey show.
I like to call this “A Prayer to the Fiery Serpents.” Aaron Bonk with his flaming whips before the Birds of Prey show.
I love capturing fire entertainers. It does make me wish that they had some evening shows at the festival. This is from the Cirque du Todd show.
I caught the tail end of the joust when Michelle and Sarah were practicing their archery. I had some fun processing this with some new Lightroom tips I learned from Ron Clifford in my new cohort in The Arcanum. I used a combination of radial filters and adjustment brushes to direct the light to the main action of the scene.
