Shots from last week’s Clarkston Football game. The Wolves beat Royal Oak considerably. It was a fun evening of football, crowds, cheerleaders,marching bands and good old high school spirit.
Earlier this week I was asked to judge photography for the upcoming Michigan State Fair. All the judges for that day met at 9 in the morning and were given an orientation. I was teamed with two other professional photographers and asked to judge Adult B&W and color. We judged categories like people, landscapes animals and others. Some decisions were easy to make where there we obvious best images and other decisions were more difficult, where there were many good images and we had to limit to a few.
Come and see the results in the Community Arts Building at the southwest corner of the grounds. The Fair starts Friday August 28 and runs through Labor Day.
I am going with the family and some neighbors, have not been to the Fair in a while.
A couple weekends ago, I attended a friend of ours jumping show at Foxwoode Hunt Club in Holly MI. I shot from the floor and quickly got an education on equestrian events.
These photographs are an exercise to see how to make a light scenes look dark. I think I was inspired by some of Michael Kenna’s images. All of the shots are in and around Clarkston and Independence Township. I don’t think I ever got more that 2 miles from home. It sure is nice to live out where it is quiet.
