Lancaster Roots & Blues 2018

LANCASTER ROOTS & BLUES 2018

Here are some of my favorite images for the the fifth annual Lancaster Roots & Blues music festival in downtown Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  There are 41 images so take your time.  My two favorites bands were Clarence Spady and Ron Holloway.  I did not make it to every location and every performance but what I saw was amazing.  As a journalist I have seen many music festivals in the area and this was be far the best.

Photographing bands in poor lighting can be very difficult so using a fast lens is key.  I also used spot focus and moved that point around constantly.  Most venues had decent lighting but Tellus 360, The Main Stage and the Chameleon Club were my favorites.  It should be noted that I didn’t attend The Sugar Tank and Zoetropolis.  Hope too see you next year and enjoy the gallery.

Bands I photographed were Clarence Spady, Anthony Gomes, Linwood Taylor, Ray Fuller & The Bluerockers, Kid Davis & the Bullets, Kenny Neal, Ron Holloway Band, The Justin Angelo Band,  Tommy Z and Magic Dick and Shun Ng.

Senior Portrait Ricketts Glenn

My niece came down from Pittsburgh because she wanted her senior portrait taken a Ricketts Glen.  Ricketts Glen is a 4-5 mile loop full of water falls.  We made it about half way before the rain came. This first image is us about five minutes before we got soaked.

The next day I took her to Harrisburg, because I thought it fit her better.  She had a totally different look that worked well with the urban landscape.  I toned these image all black and white because the color was not beneficial.

Equine Blackout Portrait

Ok so my daughter is obsessed with horses.  I recently took one of my photography students to shoot at TNC Equine Center.  She did a few of these blackout portraits and my daughter wanted me to do some.  The main reason I suggested this barn is because I knew the afternoon light would make the whole process very easy.  Actually, getting the horse in a nice pose is much more difficult than the photographic process.  The only difficult editing which really is not difficult at all is removing the girls hands.  I am not a fan of horse images with bridles or halters so luckily this horse take off.

If you are interested in one of these portraits for your horse give me a call.
