A candidate for public office where I live asked me to take several photographs for a brochure that’s being printed soon. Tonight has been chosen because there will be a group of people gathered with the candidate. I was told group shots were needed as well as a portrait of him with his family.
I’m looking forward to this shoot – it’s always challenging to create photographs of people in their natural environments.Â On-location portraits presents its own set of issues as opposed to studio photography. The lighting is trickier in that you don’t know what you’re walking into. The ambient light vs. flash.Â I enjoy its challenges and will let you know how things went.
I wasn’t able to photograph the magnificent diamonds growing from the branches of trees in my area. I hope there will be another opportunity.
Thank you for dropping by.

Below is The Canal I,Â that caught my eyes bathing in this wonderful haunting reflection of a factory building nestled at the edge of a small town. The quality of light reflecting on water creates a mystery within this factoryâ€™s lit windows.Â There are many stories that lie within its walls. ,
