This past Sunday after church the children were all downstairs putting on their costumes for the dress rehearsal of the annual Christmas play. It was a fun time as the shepherds, kings, angels etc. got ready. Some costumes fit just right but others had to be adjusted. I brought my Leica M9 along like I usually do just in case a good photo might come up. This day was no different as good photos were happening everywhere. I use the 35mm Summicron on the M9 as a carry around lens and for things like this it works great. One of my friends had their granddaughter there who is very young. She is going to be an angel which suited her perfectly. Here are some of the images I made of the kids getting ready.
Shooting tip: When photographing children make sure to get down to their level. Looking down on kids while you photograph them is a classic mistake. Then only way to get their perspective on things is to be at their level. B&W conversions are not the best. I will try to clean them up if I can.
Before the end of the month I will be posting images I made of the governor-elect in Massachusetts Charlie Baker. I was over to his home to make photos for an article on his new administration this past Monday.
