Masquerade Ball at The Vintage



The Vintage Theater's "Masquerade Ball," held at The Keys in downtown Scraton on the evening of 26 October 2012.

You know that line about the best laid plans? Well, it’s true – things go awry. We had great plans for sort of manned photo booth, where I’d have a mini studio setup to take portraits of folks in costume. But unfortunately there was a last minute change of venue, and the event ended up at The Keys, an island-themed bar on Penn Ave that just didn’t have the room for such a setup. So, we improvised.

Instead of the portraits we had planned on, we settled for a candid approach to the evening and I shot a mix of portraits and event coverage photos, pretty much the usual for most events. Except the folks out that night were anything but average – the costumes and masks I saw were great. (And especially the guy with the Hindu elephant mask!)

Some shots from the night – enjoy!

Major props to Conor and Theresa, owners of The Vintage, for throwing such a cool event. Despite the last minute switch, it was still a great time. It’s fun to do something different like this, and of course a series of rocking bands always makes it even better yet. Props to the folks at The Keys as well, for hosting the evening when things went awry.
