This week I decided to try something different. Another shot from my early days in 2011 when I honestly had not a clue as to how to use my camera. All I knew was what I wanted my shots to look like. So after three years of trial and error, with some gave help from fellow photographers along the way, I am finally starting to feel comfortable with what I am doing. And so back to this weeks shot, I took this image at the Venice of Ireland Festival the year before I was invited to become the festival’s official photographer. I guess somebody liked what I did with the original shots some of which you can see HERE.
The shot was taken during a re-enactment of an actual skirmish between English forces and the local IRA flying Column. The whole show was put on by the local Re-enactment group Lord Edward’s Own. I even came second my first ever photo competition at the local camera club with a mini panel which you can see HERE. Although the original images were all sepia conversions with alot of added noise and vignetting. I decided to go with a simple mono conversion this time round which I quite like.
So that’s it for this weeks Re-work, hopefully I will see you all next Wednesday for another image taken from the archives.
