Thanks to everyone that helped make 2014 a great year!
Looking back, though, I see I didn’t make a single blog post or do anything on Facebook! So, there’s a resolution for me: more social media interaction. To that end, this will be my last blog post using WordPress. I have a new blogging platform that I’m excited about, and will be rolling that out soon.
So better late than never, here are just a few highlights from 2014!
Some headshots and portraits:
A few of the terrifying denizens of the McFarlloween haunted house:
I did promotional shots and covered the dress rehearsal for the UW’s University Opera production of “Beatrice et Benedict”
And of course, I continued my partnership with Fresco Opera Theatre. These are from “Opera SmackDown”:
One of my favorite parts of working with Fresco is when I get to do some design. Aside from making the posters, I also end up making various support materials for the shows. These shots were used as album covers for “Opera Unplugged.”
One last shot… this one is kind of special to me: this is my daughter at Old World Wisconsin. She got some dress up clothes and went out to work in the garden. This scene just unfolded with no direction from me, and I was able to capture this image. I thought this might be a great opportunity to try a new 21mm lens, and it was!
We ended up entering it in the Old World Wisconsin Foundation’s annual photo contest, where it won first place in the “People – color” category, and also “Best in Show.” It will be on display at Old World Wisconsin for the duration of their 2015 season.
Thanks for looking, and stay tuned for more frequent updates…
