On Sunday, 10-02-11, I went back down to the Minnesota Renaissance Festival for the fourth time this year. There are links to the other images from the other three days toward the end of this post.
It was too nice of a day to go photographing anything indoors. Although it won't be long before I head back into the studio.
Today would be the last day of the festival for the year. There is always something to photograph while walking about the grounds. There were some things I wanted to photograph, but the lighting just wasn't right. Early on I went to the stage where the guys with The Danger Committee were performing, but the sun was causing too many problems for getting a decent shot. I knew later in the afternoon I would be able to photograph them without any problems.
That wasn't the case with the ladies with Caravan of Minnesota. They perform on a stage underneath a large tree, but with the sun shining through the foliage didn't make for ideal lighting conditions. I went back twice to see if the lighting had improved, but it hadn't. Fortunately, I was able to get a couple photographs of them at the closing ceremony.
The link to this day's images is right after the photo!
