They Were Thrilled

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by greyflash, Mar 15, 2005.

  1. In the ongoing saga of my paid gig taking pictures of the Heritage Choir, they were thrilled. The initial sale will run into the hundreds of dollars and discussions were initiated about me traveling with the Choir on their foreign trips. The sales from these pictures will be ongoing as they use images for all of their publicity when they travel to other states. This is my biggest coup to date. Images may be seen on my website.

    Thanks for all of your comments, critique, help, and just general support.

    Congrat, Gordon!

    You really captured some good moments and expressions. WB and exposure is also right on the money.

    Way to go!

  8. Gordon,

  10. Wow, thanks to everyone for your kind and generous comments. I really appreciate the support and encouragement I have recieved. Just as a side note it is kind of interesting how one thing leads to another and all of the sudden you find your self in demand. Not that I am there YET but it is moving in that direction. Word of mouth advertising is working great, especially in this relatively small town. I have already booked another Youth Spectacular event where young men and women in this area will be performing. I started off doing a couple of events for free and it is beginning to mushroom. Too bad I had to wait until I was 70 to figure this out. You gotta love digital and the ease of displaying and selling your images.

  15. Gordon,

    You did good!! You managed to capture the mood of the moment. Your exposure,and lighting is great. I for one would love to know a few details of how you managed to get these great shots. Were you able to do some test shots before the performance?

    Keep it up!

  16. Thanks Chet, I appreciate your comments. I did get there early and as the choir was warming up I was able to get several shots with my 17-55mm f2.8 lens using fill flash and the available light. After the performance started I shot with available light only and used my 70-200mm f2.8 VR lens. All shots were handheld. Available light shots were at ISO 800 and the fill flash shots at ISO 200. Even though I am shooting with the dreaded D2H I didn't think the noise was too bad on the ISO 800 images.
     
  17. Way to go Gordo - you are the man!

    I went through your photos - love the colours.

    Don't forget to show the Mrs the profits ;c)

    Showing her concrete proof that you hobby & all the expensive quipment is paying for itself could be a real feather in your cap down the road when you want to buy the next piece of equipment! Good going Gordon!
     
  19. Just looked at the images you posted on your webeite. Hey they are just fantastic, really well done!!

    Hi Gordon,

    I am very happy for you :D

    What a great opportunity for you and you'll also get to travel.

    I'm older than you but I would be a wonderful assistant... we could show those young 'whippersnappers' how to take pictures :!: :!: :!:

    I wish you the best and really am happy about your new life adventure!

    Gaye

    PS.. I looked through all your gallery photos.. WOW, sure know why the choir is happy with them...
