Carolina Renaissance Festival: Medieval Merchants

These fair maiden portraits kick-off a series of posts from my early November visit to the Carolina Renaissance Festival. I navigated the festival with my Nikon and Profoto B2 with 2 ft Octa softbox. I alternated between the softbox on a ProMediaGear Boomerang on camera mount and off-camera boom pole mount.

On the last leg of our Oregon Coast visit, our last stop before heading east to Portland was the Arcadia Beach State Recreational Area. This area is just south of the Cannon Beach and features sandstone bluffs and rock formations, and accessible tide pools.
