If you perchance are one of the two followers on this blog :0), you know that Murray and I are working on the photo directory for our church. It has been a huge and time consuming project, but at the same time we have learned a lot and gained much more confidence in our shooting capabilities.
Despite the fact that we had many times available throughout the summer, there were between thirty to forty of the approximately one hundred families in our church who did not make an appointment to have their photos done in the four months available. We did anticipate doing some family portraits yet in the fall, but by Labour Day weekend we only had one booked.
As anyone with a busy family knows, once the school year begins, so does everything else. That and the fact the virtually no one had booked past August confirmed that we needed to bite the bullet and get things rolling, so we talked with our booking agent :o) and set up three photo blitz Saturdays. The following images are just a few of the eleven families/individuals who were a part of this past Saturday's blitz.
Most of these are pretty much SOOC. Perhaps a little cropping here and there or a little tweaking of the brightness, but that's about it. Next two goals: 1) to make flash my friend, and 2) learn to work in RAW. First things first though, and that is to get the next two photo blitz Saturdays completed.
Because we remember moments, not days...
