Back to the Renaissance Festival for another shot. We found the guy in this photo first, asked to take his photo and he was great -- very animated. Moved him in front of an ivy-lined tree and shot him with our standard strobe through a Photoflex softbox. Doug shot him first and got some really intense stuff. We thought he had a great costume until he asked if we would take a photo with his girlfriend too. And then she walked over in what you see above. I was shooting by then and had them pose in more of a stoic stance. In a weird way it reminded me of Grant Wood's American Gothic.
