I went to Fort Scott to cover the 30th annual candlelight tour at the Fort Scott National Historic Site. Always a fun place to visit as history is something I really enjoy, and anytime I am able to cover a history assignment, all the better. However, as cool as it was to visit, it was hard to photograph. The weather didn’t help either. Fog and mist made it that much darker. I focused a little harder and tried to figure out a way to use the candles to show what this tour was like visually. There were around 700 candles lining the sidewalks and steps. I found a spot where I could rest myself, and camera on some steps and make a unique image as re-enactors walked down the pathway. I do like what I ended up with. It was nerve-racking for a while, and hard to balance the light, but it worked out in the end.
