Continuous Fight Since 1601
I discovered today that there is a global community of tens of thousands of people who hold tournaments and events based around 16th century combat. They agreed to use the time machine to let me get photo before sending me back to 2021.
You can see a color version and some fight photos below.
Here is one of the main organizations:
The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is an inclusive community pursuing research and re-creation of pre-seventeenth century skills, arts, combat and culture. The lives of participants are enriched as we gain knowledge of history through activities, demonstrations, and events.
Black And White photography - its power lies in its ability to focus our attention on the form of light, in the absence of all color. Black and white can evoke a variety of emotions for the viewer. Portraits and street photography are popular genres for this style, but black and white can enhance all forms of photography: Architecture, abstract subjects, macro, texture, or even Landscapes can all be very distinct subjects for B/W photography. There is a bit of skill involved here - we need to learn to see the world in a more monochromatic way, we need to focus on where the light is hitting, and where the shadows are being cast. What shapes can we see? What textures are catching our attention?. Any image can be turned into a black and white shot, but we're here to learn and get better, so let's aim to get good photos that can tell a story better by showing it in fewer colors than we normally see. Black and white processing looks great for detailed texture like water droplets, waves in the sand, the wrinkles of an old smile, or an abandoned concrete wall. Pro tip: If you can, set your camera to black and white so that you are seeing what your monochromatic world looks like around you, in realtime as you shoot!
