Mixed Media Photograph of the Month Contest Entry 
While spending the winter in Arizona, we fell in love with the historical Old Tucson sound stage and old western theme park. Old Tucson holds several special events throughout the year. This particular they had a Civil War Reenactment group perform various battles throughout the day. I photographed the event from the front row of the spectator bleachers. The reenactor's equipment and the uniforms added to the authentic atmosphere of the event. This scene I have posted has been reworked to give a feel of days of the real battle. I converted to an aged b/w and softened the background to help highlight the faces and uniforms of the soldiers and the action surrounding them. I hope you enjoy a look back at a moment of history.
Post Type: Mixed Media Photography
Mixed Media: Major Shot in RAW and converted with Lightroom. Used a Nikon D7000 with a Sigma 16/300. Converted to b/w and several aging techniques to turn back the clock to the days of the Civil War.
