Last evening I had the opportunity to do some work for the Peppermint Creek Theatre Company's latest production of "Altar Boyz". The work was done on location at the former Temple Club in Lansing. The combination of vibrant colors, stained glass, interesting interior architecture, and enthusiasm of the cast really provided for some interesting shots. This should be a great production!!

Fall is my absolutely my favorite season. In addition to the beautiful fall colors and diffuse light, there is a sense of foreboding in the air. The cold and starkness of winter is soon approaching! The fall skies are frequently a beautiful indigo color. Fall is a also a wonderful opportunity to take some outdoor shots with the fall colors providing a spectacular background and canopy. I'm enclosing some recent photographs I took recently. They include a senior photo shoot, and an engagement photo session.
Believe it or not, 2009 was the first time I attended Silver Bells in the City. I was never anxious to deal with the large crowds and all of the confusion. This year was different however, since I recently acquired a new camera (Canon 7d), I was anxious to try it out, especially some night shots. There are a lot of activites happening simultaneously, and it's difficult, if not impossible, for one person to capture all of them. I was able to take some shots of the crowd, and some shots of the capitol rotunda. I love taking candid photos, and I really loved the atmosphere that surrounds Silver Bells in the City. I'm enclosing a few examples of some of the shots I took. I took a variety of shots, and I'm happy with the performance of the new camera. Let me know what you think. Enjoy!
