Week 20 Wedding

This week I photographed Deonne and Fred's wedding. It was a nice small informal wedding and was loads of fun. Unfortunately the ceremony was right around midday and the sun was shinning brightly from high in the sky. I managed to get by with heavy use of my flash and fill light. The ceremony was short and sweet and then I made some group photographs and everyone relaxed into socializing for the afternoon. I really like the group photograph I made above because I managed to get a good balance between my flash and and sunny background and the ugly hazy white sky was mostly removed from the photograph. There were some young children and they made for some great moments like the one below of the little girl looking up at Deonne through the flowers. It was also really neat because a pair of huge white Trumpeter Swans visited the nearby pond and I was able to get fairly close and photograph them. They are so HUGE standing on land they were almost as tall as me.

Week 27 FGC!

I have so many favorite photographs from this week. I was at FGC(Friends General Conference) so there was loads to photograph and I was in a photography workshop so I was even more photographically active then usual. I worked very hard to slim down the hundreds to just these few very best. The last two you need to know a little bit about the Quaker activities durring FGC. The first of the two is of wink which is a wrestling and kissing game. I wont go into the full description here but check out this article that talkes about it, http://quaker.wikia.com/wiki/Wink_(game). I will say however that it can be extremely photographic but is a good challenge to photograph successfully. The very last photograph is of one of the AYFers(Adult Young Friends) participating in the ritual celebration feast at the end of the week. It is done in worshipful silence and you can NOT feed yourself but have to be fed by others, and you get to feed others :) Loads of fun and a great way to wrap up a bondin…

Week 24 Farm Work

This week there was lots of work to do on Round River Farm. The biggest task being cleaning all the manure out of the barn and chicken coop. It made a huge pile. There were also lots of vegetables as is to be expected. I also took a walk to the nearby lake and saw some beautiful flowers.
