Final Project Day 2: Coalition of Historical Trekkers

Yesterday was our second and final day at the National Gathering of the Coalition of Historical Trekkers at Fort Osage near Sibley, MO.  It started out very rainy and miserable (It is always fun trying to keep $15,000 worth of electronics dry) but the photo gods smiled on us and the sun came out for the afternoon.

I had an amazing time shooting this event.  The members of the coalition could not have been more welcoming, hospitable and friendly to us (not to mention very tolerable of four photographers putting big cameras in their faces all weekend…).  We took a keen interest in what they were doing and visa versa.  It all worked out and helped us make some good pictures for our final project.

The final product should be done within the next month.  For now, here are some photos from yesterday’s shoot:

    Why would you complain about weather? Weather makes photographs great! I love the fog in that first image.

    Ruined cameras and* wet photographers! We got lucky in the end though, it cleared up quite well. Nice shots John, #2, 5, and 6 are looking especially good.
