Recently I had the pleasure of photographing these terrific young men – ages 4, 2 and 7 months.  The Christmas season is really about young people and I cherish my photoshoots with kids this time of year.

Mom and Dad will use a few of these pictures for a holiday card. The boys were wonderful to work with, with a minimum of meltdowns.

The image above was a quick grab shot “off the set” of the baby in his Dad’s arms. We all liked the expression.

Thanks, Guys, for hanging in there and being great models!

In the Park with Christina

 

 

Having terrific fun in my continuing photography project with Christina. This week we went outside for the first time, to a local park. If you haven’t seen any of the pictures from our earlier shoots, check out the blue links to the right, with the name “Christina” in the title.

We just have 2 or 3 more shoots to do. I’m beginning to think about how to bring together many of the images from our 10 weeks of pictures. It might be a video slide show of the photographs, with Christina singing one of the songs she has written and performed. You can hear her terrific voice at Christina Mae.

Stay tuned – literally and figuratively! Thanks again to Christina for collaborating with me on this creative adventure.

A Performance with Christina

So, last week I photographed Christina with her country group, Gunsmoke, in performance at the Long Ridge Tavern in Stamford.  The concert was great fun and everyone in this fabulous group played and sang beautifully. But this was a challenging place to take pictures.

First, the space was very tight and I had to be careful not to block the view of people who were having dinner and watching the show.

In this image, Christina is standing between her grandfather and her father, both members of Gunsmoke. It’s a mostly family affair!

Aside from the tight space to shoot in, the light was very poor. For those of you who are familiar with cameras, I usually shoot at an ISO of between 100 and 400. (The ISO is a setting for the sensitivity of the light.) In low light settings, I’ll normally go up to 1000 or so. In some of these images, I used an extraordinarily high ISO of 12,600. It’s absolutely amazing that the new pro-level cameras can capture images which are decent at these levels. The pictures had a fair amount of noise (graininess) because of the high ISO, but I was able to take most of the noise out in Photoshop.

Despite the challenges, it was a fun evening of music and picture-taking. Stay tuned for more images of Christina in the coming weeks.
