The Secret Garden (play)...

Photos from the 2009 Theatre Lab Teen Institute musical performance of The Secret Garden directed by Michael Russotto and Buzz Mauro. Such amazing acting with a wonderful set and costumes. Visually, this was so "Spot On" to catch with the Canon and easy to get lost through the viewfinder since I don't really HEAR the dialog and songs when I am shooting. For me, it is all about the faces and seeing the actors lost in their own characters.

All was shot using the 5DmkII with the 70-200 f2.8L IS and two 580EXII's (one left and one right of the stage on stands up high) triggered with the new pocketwizards. I am catching so much of the show with this light that I am almost getting "too much" coverage. The above represent just a few that interested me.

Clarendon Dog Wash...

Dogs + Water + Soap = sad dogs shaking water everywhere!

It was Beautiful.

... a corporate track team hosted a Dog Wash in Clarendon to raise money for a cancer related charity. Great idea for this neighborhood and i knew it would be a great opportunity to catch something fun. This was shot in manual mode. Caught a lot of highlights so I need to watch my metering more... it changed much more rapidly than I was used to.
