“A House Divided: Civil War Reenactment”

Last month the youngest and I went to a number of places taking pictures. One was the Columbus Museum for “A House Divided: Civil War Reenactment”. I have only recently had the time to work on the pictures from that day. These pictures weren’t the usual download off the camera, process and move on pictures. I have worked in photo restoration for many years. Ever since an old family album was almost lost in a fire back in Dec 1997. Hubby showed me how to scan, and I found a man on the internet in Australia who I emailed. He gave me tips and I taught myself how to restore the photographs. Wow, that was 16 years ago, and when I look at how much I have learned since then. But yet how much the software is the same now. It has expanded, yes, but much is still the same. Very interesting when you think about it.

Anyway, I digress – as I am still trying to find my niche in photography we went to the Civil War reenactment so I could take the pictures, and then make them look more Civil War aged. So I have used some old techniques, and learned some new ones, and here are some of the results, enjoy!
