Word and Image

Group Shot

This gives new meaning to me when I think of a group shot. One muzzle blast, two flintlock blasts, and some early smoke. Whoa, I got some great action here. After the commander said, ‘Fire’ everyone was a little different in their timing. You don’t know how hard this is to catch until you edit and find one shot like this in more than 1000 images. The commander said, ‘Fire.’ and everyone did, just not at the same time – not even me.

  1. Good capture. I do know how hard it is to get this shot. We have a demo here at Fort Niagara.

    • I guess the first thing is to know that this shot can be done. Before I had been to such an event, it never occurred to me. I was just happy getting everyone dressed in authentic period costumes. But hopefully anyone reading will know what to try to capture.

    WOW. How in the world did you balance all of the elements required to get this shot in your head at once? This is phenomenal.

      BTW, do you sell your photographs anywhere? If so, let me know where, please. Thanks.

        Thanks for your kind words. I’m truly flattered and really don’t know how to respond. I still have a day job. So photography is a serious hobby but not a job. Let me know what image you seek and I can arrange to get you the file.

        Victor, that ain’t how it’s done. 🙂
        Your photographs are too good to throw around. I want a signed print. If you would be so kind as to email me, I would appreciate discussing the purchase with you. Thanks.
