Working an all-day "Zombie BBQ…" Newburgh, NY. 1•Oct.•11

Had some time off coming from the day job, so I was able to do a few things for a good friend & local restaurant owner here in town yesterday. A good day for a good cause, as the “Psychedelic Zombie BBQ II” was held inside the old Newburgh Armory. Some very large spaces, smaller rooms and a gym for vendors, outdoor BBQ, and an outdoor beer garden. I’d decided the night before to pack up my “quick & dirty” two light portrait set and bring it along, just in case I encountered folks really into this whole Zombie thing. Little did I know… It was a long and tiring day (about 15 hours on location), but it was good to see a few performers I know. It was also fun making the varied images and stepping up to the challenges of working under difficult lighting conditions in the old building… (Will try to add a slideshow of the day soon.) ~cg.
