American Civil War

By ginz04  
this photo was taken at the American Civil War re-enactment at Tatton Park-Cheshire earlier today - Ive sepia toned it as it seems to be appropriate for the time.

Nice image and good to see you getting in and filling the frame. The sepia is like a faded old print, but too even to actually replicate that. I would have used sepia, but gone for a much darker brown to give the image some punch. Sepia removes contrast in effect - brown being less intense than black.

Possibly a little more space in front of him, at the expanse of the back of his head if necessary. Nice and sharp.

I personally feel its need more impact by the subject looking at the camera and giving it a main focal point with the eyes, My other point could be effected by my knowledge of the period, sepia was not used much during this period so seems false to me but as I pointed out this could be down to my knowledge of period photography that I Asume that your tring to replicate. If you go again ask the gentleman(malcolm is is name btw to do a pose for you, i can assure you he will be happy to do so).

You chose one of the most photogenic subjects btw, I have quite a few of him myself.

hi Kevin he was certainly the most photogenic person there and i have several of him as well - why sepia - i didnt think black and white was enough of a difference to try to bring some authenticity to the picture im not sure whether sepia is quite right either but I think it does look good and im happy with it.

Thank you for your constructive comments
