Creating visual permanence in a world of relentless motion.

Strobed Battle Photographs; Outside

A recent weekend of heavy combat, fencing, and other Medieval and Renaissance activities provided a prime opportunity to create some visually interesting photographs with my new Fujifilm X100s camera.  Combining the ability of the camera to sync with flash at shutter speeds faster than most cameras and this amazing event resulted in some interesting photographs.  All are .jpgs straight out of the camera – not even opened in Photoshop.
