All Hallows Eve Texas Renaissance

  •  All Hallows Eve is one of my favorite weekends to attend the Texas Renaissance Festival, the costumes are over the top. The amount of work these folks into there makeup and costumes is amazing. There are so many photo opportunities at these type of events, most of the participants are happy to stop and let you photograph them. If you are new to photography this is a great place to start.
The Sony A99 with the Sony Zeiss 135 f 1.8 was used to take all the shots. I have fallen in love with this camera and lens combination when taking head shots, and the background blur is wonderful

I will be posting some photos taken with my new Sony FE 55mm lens in my next blog.

My First Blog

Sony A99, Sony Zeiss 135 f1.8 lens
I am taking the leap into blogging. Not knowing how to spell, use words that are much larger than five letters, and not understanding the English language, I may be in trouble. Reading other photographers blogs makes me want to try my hand at it, so here goes. This blog will be about my photography adventures, skills, talking about different cameras, my settings and just what is fun in my life at the moment. My goal is to improve my writing skills, which I have none, and my photography skills.

The photo was taken at the Texas Renaissance Festival during the 1001 Dreams weekend. There were fairies everywhere to take photos of. 

Well there you have it, my first blog. That wasn't so bad was it?
