'1940's days 2019'

Post by davechinn » Tue Aug 13, 2019 7:03 pm

Last year (2018) I attended the 1940's days @ the Cincinnati Lunken Municipal Airport. This years (2019) was held at the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal. The exhibits were similar to the previous year but not as excitable. Maybe the location was an issue. Here are a couple of images with a different twist to my normal post processing. Not sure how these are going to come across, but there is only one way to find out.

These are great Dave. I love the hand-tinted look and the vintage poses/compositional choices. Your photos from these events always appeal to me, the era had such a distinct look and mood, and you do well capturing it.

Only idea from my viewpoint would be to try and hold onto a little more detail in the white skirts, they take up so much space and are so white that they sort of pull away from the wonderful colors and details in the women. But in truth, it was common for cameras in that era to overexpose whites. So it's authentic for sure!
