armour

At Camera Club tonight it was the Chairman’s evening and Emma had invited a chap who takes part in historical reenactment events, specifically the middle ages…and he arrived with full suits of armour, swords, axes and all sorts of other wonderful bits and pieces.

The club strobe lights were out and there was lots to photograph…so I spent the evening chatting with other members…and suddenly realised I hadn’t got any shots!

I dashed around and grabbed a few shots of armour. When I got home I wasn’t hugely impressed with what I had so decided to spend some time in photoshop to see what I could come up with…and here we have it!

This is a composite made up of around 7 different shots – the helmet and chain armour were from this evening, all the other images are mine from previous shoots.

The overriding message I took home from the evening is – it’s damn hot work wearing suits of armour!
