In September in Huntington Beach, CA, the historical society has Civil War Recreation days. These participants put a lot of effort into the authenticity of their costumes and campsites. I plan on doing a lot of black and white conversions to match the look of Matthew Brady’s Civil War photography. The image posted is a faded and distressed look of a building at the Chemung Mine in Bridgeport, CA which illustrates my thinking.
Comments and creative suggestions welcome.
