I have to apologize to my blog followers for being slow to post recently. I work part-time in a camera store and throughout the holiday season I’ve been working pretty much full-time hours and even overtime, so I’ve had little time to edit and post.
A few weeks ago however, I did get to shoot an event called “Tuba Christmas” at Cleveland’s Trinity Cathedral. Several other photographers and myself were given free reign during the rehearsal to get up close and personal and shoot just about anything and anybody while the brass orchestra rehearsed. My main emphasis was on capturing as many faces of orchestra members as I could, but I also looked for smaller details and focused in on hands and intricacies of instrument valves.
Sometimes while shooting, you just know you captured an image that will be your favorite. During the rehearsal I captured one of the orchestra members just as she glanced upwards over the top of her glasses to look at and listen to the conductor. As soon as I saw the image on my LCD screen of the camera, I knew I had my image of the day!
I wish you all a wonderful holiday season and look forward to everyone having a great 2014!
