Flag Fest Shoot!

OK. The most important thing: Images are here! (Click on the text!)

We were dodging raindrops on Saturday but people did turn out and Sunday turned into a really beautiful day.

We got to test out our new backdrop taken during the 1876 Centennial and courtesy of The Library Company of Philadelphia. Also, for the first time we used ballasts to hold down the backdrop supports. They were made by filling Zip Loc bags with water! One of the biggest hazards of shooting outside is your backdrop can become a big sail and take itself out along with anything in its path. Yes, go for the Boy Scout Motto: Be Prepared!

Special thanks to Amber and Trinette who both helped with the shoot, my friend Tom Durham for printing the backdrop and Elaine at Frugal Frames for helping me get the backdrop seamed together. I couldn't have done it without you.

A number of shoots are coming up in Philly in case you missed us. Stay tuned!
