A Project Within A Project

So, a new project has been born within my current War Was Here project.  It is something I can do in parallel and shoot all the images for both projects at the same time.  The new mini project is going to be a portrait series.  I made a portrait at the Resaca Reenactment that really resonated with me and I have decided to make all the portraits in a similar style.  The subject was standing with his back to the wall of a white canvas tent.  I was able to “blowout” the white background and ended up with a sort of modern look that seems to work well with the juxtaposition of the period attire.  The portraits will all be of reenactors, both military and civilian.  I have acquired a portable backdrop and will use it along with my speedlights to recreate these portraits.  I will have to travel light since I will be on foot and away from the car at most reenactments.  I still don’t have a title for the side project, but I am sure it will come to me in time.  Below is the portrait that I made at Resaca.  All the rest will be styled after this one.  I can not decide which one I like better, but eventually the images will let me know.  I usually lean more toward black and white, but for some reason I like the color one.  Must be the contrast with the black and white image he is hold in his hands.  Or the blue coat.
