With the theme of days gone by, here are a series of photo manipulations I made to use very different effects.
Yosemite Pioneer History Center
At Yosemite National Park’s Pioneer History Center on weekends, they have people recreating the life experiences of the 1800s. Here is a picture of one of the docents and the photography equipment from that day and age.
Over the summer, they have many horses stabled at the center. Some are draft horses to pull the wagons. Others are available for trail riding. This is a picture of the huge barn and the dog who stands guard.
Here are some pictures I made from the Civil War Re-enactment in Mariposa California in June. With the first set, I wanted to create the look of old-time photos.
For the next set of pictures, I wanted them to look like paintings or illustrations from old magazines.
