All kinds of shooting, all kinds of conditions. Starting with Wil's USA Mat Club last week to some head shots for Scott to family shots in the Millwork District, out to Epworth on Saturday morning to shoot a one-year old, Nancy decided to take her camera to the Rite-Hite picnic and finished up with a 50-year reunion at St. Columbkille and the Morocco.
The Millwork District is very impressive, but there is a lot going on in there, so backgrounds are very busy. We nearly panicked when we saw that Holy Family Catholic Schools were hosting an outing, but Nancy cleared us for the shoot. Open shade is better than direct sunlight, so we did pretty well down there.
Nancy wasn't sure if she was going to take her camera, but we were really glad she did. What a great event, although the temperature could have been 10 degrees warmer. She mostly made her way around the kids. The shooting conditions were nearly ideal, lots of shade with the sun only popping out once in awhile. Okay, it was an event, and there would be kids there, so why not? We really like them, but we'll let you be the judge.
Catholic Churches are beautiful, but probably offer the most challenging lighting conditions. We weren't necessarily contracted for the Church, but we had to go to Mass anyway, and like to do a little extra when we can. Still getting our routine figured out on flashes before Mass, how to move around with large stain glass windows and the timing of events. We are Catholic, so we try to be respectful of what is going on, but obviously we want to capture a few moments. The Morocco has it's challenges with lighting, but Nancy mostly bounced light off of the white ceilings with a Gary Fong diffuser. We're talking about putting some of those pictures to music for a photo slide show and Tanner is still finishing up with editing.
The past week was very busy, but we enjoyed the challenge of working in a number of different conditions. Thanks to clients for their patronage and to all of you for the support.
