Revolutionary War Re-enacting Soldier 243rd Regiment, PA on July 4th 2015. 35mm Film

When I visited a friend[1] over July 4th weekend to see the MuralArts murals of Philadelphia[2], I also got the chance to photograph a soldier from The 2nd Pennsylvania Regiment & The 43td of Foot[3] and he even let me shoot his brown bess rifle[4]! I took a series of action shots with him to see if I could capture the Brown Bess[5] firing. I captured the smoke and even some red hot sparks, but not the muzzle flash. But I m psyched at what I was able to get. Interesting to note how the soldier closed his eyes, presumably to avoid the fiery sparks. I took these photographs with FujiFilm Superia 400 color film[6] using my awesome Nikon F3HP 35mm camera[7]. I had the roll developed at my favorite NYC film processing center Accurate Photo[8] and then scanned the negatives using my Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner[9].

Have a rockin weekend and see you Monday for more!
