Event photography of Clarkston’s annual 4th of July Parade. The parade starts at St Dans Church on the north west end of town and weaves it’s way to the Community Center on the east side of town. Being an election year there was plenty of politicians, mostly for Independence Township. The parade, as always was started by the local color guard and we even had a WW II veteran.
Interior Office Photography of CV Media in Northville MI. CVmedia had me come to their office to photograph new images of their people for the about page of their new website. We later discussed shooting the office space and people working in the office.
CV Media is a creative media agency and their office is anything but ordinary. The rooms are fairly dark and lit with contrasty light. I chose not to bring in additional lighting to balance out the exposure because I thought it might ruin the ambiance. Instead I decided to shoot and process HDR images. For the images with people I had to ask the people to hold still while I shot the 5 exposure bracket on a tripod. Some of the rooms are pretty small so I had to use a very wide lens and the images get a bit zoom. All the images were later processed with Lightroom and Photomatix Pro. I tried to keep a somewhat natural look.
Clarkston football sports photography of the Clarkston Chiefs summer camp. Every year the coaches of the Clarkston football team host a camp for the Clarkston Chiefs and I will spend a day doing sports photography for them. The Chiefs are the younger ages version of the Clarkston football program. Again this year it must have been the hottest day of the year. I do have to compliment the young athletes, they were all moving and giving every drill 100% The coached were all fully engaged and game a ton of attention to the groups and individuals.
