    Hasse,

    I saw something about it on TV the other night and thought about going but I have someone coming tomorrow and Sundays are awkward for me so I guess I'll be giving it a miss.

    Thanks for the heads up though. It's handy to get told of interesting things.

    Must think about another Brisbane get-together also now that it's cooler, and hopefully drier too.

  3. Would love to go again this year but I'm currently overseas. It's a great event for photography if anyone else was interested in going.

    Talked briefly to Henry (hazwing) a while ago about visiting a night market with some fast glass. Just an idea. Been too slack to investigate which one would be ideal.

    Yeah I remember your pics from last year - https://www.mu-43.com/f57/medieval-festival-e-m5-e-pm1-29292/ - my mother is in #22. My folks are vikings again this year, so I thought I better go and take a photo or two :biggrin:

    I also have been hoping that someone would be mean enough to show the rest of us what we missed :)

    Here is a quickly compiled set;

    Abbey Festival 2013 - a set on Flickr

    Lenses used on the day - Nikon 180mm f2.8, Konica 57mm f1.2 and Vivitar 28mm f2 - mostly at f4. So all manually focused.

    Looks like fun & similar to Ironfest in Lithgow, NSW (which also includes steampunk too).
     
  16. Nice work! The weather looks like it was just about perfect (it rained a little in 2012). I think that I recognise your Mum from last year in the final image :smile:

    I went today. Sooooo many people now attend since the last time I went and it is much bigger. Jousting was to hard to photograph unless you like fences. Hard to get images with so many people walking around.

    Here is a link to some for today for me.

    Abbey 2013 - a set on Flickr

    Carried two bodies one with the 12-35 other with the 35-100. I did bring a couple of primes but didn't use them. Easier with the zooms when there are so many people and you have to quickly grab a shot.
