Re: Return to Toddington

Ian they are really good. I don't know how you do it, you just seem to be able to capture brilliant expressions every time with your people shots. There's a story in them all.

Re: Return to Toddington

Thanks Phil,

I try to capture natural expression without attracting attention but if I can't I engage and ask them to carry on without looking at me - seems to work and the size of the EM1 helps as it is less intimidating than the full frame DSLR I used to have.

Re: Return to Toddington

I find these very interesting, especially as many of these were familiar sights when I were a boy

Re: Return to Toddington

Thanks,

I do find these events a photographers dream as the subjects are more than willing to be photographed and very authentic in their dress as well as being super friendly.

Fun weekend with not a grumpy "Don't take my photo" person in sight!!

Re: Return to Toddington

They are all top notch, of course, but of those posted here No 1 is my favourite. However, my overall favourite from the extended set is the press photographer on the station platform, using what appears to be a Speed Graphic. I bet you was pleased with that one!

Re: Return to Toddington

Hi John,

You are right, he was shooting with an old Speed Graphic and does actually shoot with vintage camera sat the event s he attends.

I always try and capture images of photographers at events and as much as I like the one of him, I do prefer the profile image of the gent with trilby and grey hair/beard that is on my website, he just has character!

Hi Ian, The quality of your shots is nothing short of super in every way. I've really enjoyed this particular WW11 subject.

Re: Return to Toddington

Conor, big thank you for the kind comment.

The dress of the individuals and their friendly attitude as well as willingness to be photographed makes getting nice photos much easier than many think.

We are lucky that we have quite a few re-enactment events close to us so good opportunities for these types of photos.

These are great. They really tell a story. I like your processing as well, which gives them a vintage colour look. Thanks for sharing these.

Andrew
