This evening I will be photographing and filming the official book launch for a new publishing company, Rabbit Creek Press!!
Klondike Colours is a kids colouring book that’s illustrations focus on the history of Dawson City’s gold rush era combined with present day community events.
The book was illustrated by a past SOVA student graduate, Andrée Bélanger. She studied at the art school the year before I attended.
I am normally a still-life-photo-taker. I find it hard to take good, flattering photos of people while they are standing in front of a microphone or are mid-conversation.
Today I will try something new.
I will become a stealthy photographer!
People won’t be able to act weird about seeing a camera around because they will not see me!
My goal is to set the camera up so that it takes multiple photos at once, that way I can choose the best from the photo bursts! I will also dress in darker colours, more casual than my usual in-your-face kind of style… just so people forget about my presence.
No, I am not going to stalk them or take “secret” photos.
I will be present, but hopefully unnoticed —-» LIKE A NINJA!
I will let you know how that works out… and whether I’m going to be overly confident in Program mode or stay cautious on Automatic is another story entirely.
