Weddings, proms and graduations. It is that time of year and thankfully we are all celebrtating these events and not locked up in a home or quarantining. I photographed this group of models using the Canon 5d mark 4 which is my go to camera these days. People say that the DSLR will be obsolete soon, but that is another story, I still like the feel of the camera. My lighting was my Godox200 pro with an octobox and as you can see, it gives us very soft light to work with.
I grew up in Westport, Ct and I have a lot of experience photographing people. Groups, solo, on location…. you name it. My children now attend the same schools as I did growing up. So when I was asked to photograph the seniors for the Staples Baseball team, I was very happy. Happy to try out my new Godox 200 set up which allows me to control the settings from the camera. This is a game changer for me. No more pausing the shoot to adjust the flash settings. I can now talk with the client while I adjust my settings. Brilliant!!
Westport had it’s second fitness and health day on main street this week and the turnout was very good. This year Fleet Feet added a 5k run earlier in the morning, which I think is a great idea. They basically shut down main street Westport and have fitness demonstrations, giveaways and information on how to be fit.
Street photography is very enjoyable and it can be very sneaky at times. You really want to go unnoticed because you are looking to get the most natural images you can. A lot of times when I raise my camera, people will automatically become aware and strike a pose. This is where the “sneaky” part comes in. A quick focus, and a quick shot and then move on. It works 90% of the time
