Civil War Faces

I set the Wayback Machine to the Civil War, stepped in, and pulled the start lever. To my consternation (but ultimate enjoyment) the machine took me to a Civil War reenactment camp in 2014. (I do have to get that thing fixed!). Hope you enjoy the faces of the Civil War reenactment. The participants came from all over the country and stayed in character the whole day. I arrived just as the camp was getting up and going. These portraits were with permission . . . the glares were part of their staying in character. 🙂

Portraits

I enjoy taking portraits when people are not aware that their picture is being taken. I think you have a better chance of portraying the personality and character when they are not posing for a picture. Here are an almost handful of my favorites. Their vocations are a middle school teacher, a brilliant civil rights activist, an author preparing for a book signing, and a Michigan icon (with a University of Michigan building named after him). These are all good friends that have used the captures of them I sent them. Hope you enjoy the pics. As always, your thoughts and comment are welcome.
