2016 was a wonderful year at the New York Renaissance Faire in Tuxedo New York. Not only did my son love the faeries, characters, and pirates, we met the most amazing people and now call friends.
It was also a great opportunity to capture some colorful photos of some hard working people. The costumes and makeup beg to be noticed, photographed and admired.
Upon arriving and getting my first meade of the day, we race towards the faerie forest to say hello to our friends. The lighting in the forest can be a challenge, but I enjoy making the dark backgrounds and the subjects pop in the pictures.
The different times of the day and the different areas of the faire allow for the same subject to be photographed with different moods and background.
Looking forward to next year’s faire as well as seeing our new friends at other venues.
