Renaissance Festival Shop Keeper
This picture was made at the Renaissance Festival in November. It's been floating around on my hard drive ever since. Finally finished it off tonight with a slight warming layer and an edge. As I remember that day, Doug and I started talking with the owner of this shop, and he had us photographing everyone who was nearby. This woman was working behind the counter, so we had to wait a bit for someone to fill in for her while we took a couple of photos. Not sure if Doug shot her or not. I kinda don't think so because we were in such a hurry. We were in full stride paparazzi mode by then -- not taking too much time with any one person. Anyway, the more I've seen the photo over the past few months, the more I like it -- nice expression, decent light, sharp eyes, and a not-too-cluttered background. Can't ask for much more in the realm of less-than-5-minute potraits. Nikon D200, 1/160 sec at f/5.6, flash through softbox from camera right.
