Default Before the digital era...waaay before.

Went to a Civil War re-enactment and saw a photographer setting up equipment of that day for a shoot. Thought it looked good processed in tinted tones. C&C appreciated. Step #1:

That shroud reminds me we need something like that with our digital screens being almost useless on a bright sunny day.

Yeah, but then we'd risk getting arrested as "Peeping Toms" :-)

Nice series, Walter. Well executed and composed.

The background and sepia effect set the era!

Only 'suggested change' I would have is - would the cloak / shroud look better if it was a darker colour (or black?) In it's current form it looks somewhat like a towel imho.

Thanks for sharing. Nice!

Paul

Paul, I'm not sure about the authenticity of the light-colored cloak. Maybe it is historically accurate, or maybe he just thought light would reflect the sun better and keep him cooler underneath.

The shroud is white on the outside and black inside. That seems to be pretty standard construction.
