American Civil War Reenactors, Maiden and Photographer, El Rancho de las Golondrinas, Albumen by 


El Rancho de las Golondrinas is a living history museum and village located near La Cienega, County of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Las Golondrinas is the annual host for a reenactment of the American Civil War battles at Glorieta Pass and Apache Canyon. The gentleman is the official photographer for las Golondrinas, and dresses in period costume. The lovely maiden is a reenactor .

I processed the RAW in photoshop, then exported to Paint Shop Pro XII, where I converted to albumen using the time machine special effect. Albumen was a photo processing method contemporaneous with the U.S. Civil War.

Pentax K20D, 1/125 @ F6.3, ISO 200, 38mm
