Tentative Series Name:
My Lords and Ladies
For my series I want to study people who escape from everyday life into the Renaissance Fair. My plan is to make a book filled with portrait images, landscapes, and quotes from Renaissance Fair Actors. I want to study why it is they do what they do and showcase a niche slice of life.
How will you execute idea?:
The plan is simply to go to the Renaissance Fair interview some of the actors and snap their picture. Adding in Landscapes and any other cool things I might find.
Why is this topic important to you? What do you want other people to understand? What do you hope this series will accomplish?:
When I was a kid I always wanted to be a knight. There was always something fantastic to me about the medieval ages. The Renaissance Fair was always one of my favorite things to do. I want to capture that magic I felt as a child. I am also curious to see if the magic holds up like I remember.
Any special conditions, equipment, or techniques needed?:
I shouldn’t need any equipment as there should be plenty of natural light considering it is an outdoor event. I may bring my tripod for some better portraits, but I shouldn’t be needing anything else.
Output Method and Size:
The book will be oversized 10X15 pages. A Spread will be 10×30. It will be a large book. I wanted to do Spiral bound so the book can sit flat.
