A Crazy Past Few Weeks

So we really do like to keep you guys updated on what's going on with B&G Photography. If you haven't liked us on Facebook, that's a good way, but here on the blog is another good way. We've just been slacking here on the blog side of things recently... Most of that is just because we've had a crazy past few weeks! And that's a good thing. 

Personally, I have to point it all back to Christ and the sovereignty of my King. We've had a lot of things change in our lives, but God has been right there providing every step of the way, just as He said He would in Matthew 6:25-34.

Part of that is related to the photo above. It's a shot we did for the poster for the Hickory Ballet Academy's production of Giselle. This particular picture wasn't the one chosen for the poster, but one we did in the same series. We've been very happy to work with HBA for these photos and photos of their students. It's been an amazing opportunity and we've gotten some hugely encouraging feedback from it. 

From the technical/artistic side, it's been a great challenge to really convey the mood of the ballet but still keep a nice, soft shot for the kids' photos. Also, figuring out how to get a background big enough was...interesting... We got the very biggest one we could find and had to build a custom support for it and it was still pushing it.

We had a blast though and look forward to more work with the ballet in the future.
