I know... another photography post you say?
Yes! But I have just been so fortunate to have had some pretty cool photographic opportunities lately and I'm keen to share them with you...
Plus I like to add it here for my own records...
This shoot was super exciting for me because I had the opportunity to take shots of some NZ political celebrities.... how cool is that? Super cool!
The Ngarimu VC and 28th (Maori) Battalion Scholarships Awards Ceremony.
A notable attendee:
Me... I felt extremely shy about using my flash in the grand hall during such an auspicious event. I didn't want people distracted from the significance of the occasion because some crazy chick with a camera was shooting off a massive flash every 10 seconds. So I spent quite a bit of time prior to the event adjusting settings on my camera inside the empty room. Although this was really helpful, I still think that using the flash really would have helped with the quality of the shots, but overall I was ok with what I got.
Use of photos: The photos will be used in promoting the scholarship all over the place... woohoo!
Last thoughts: I am so inspired by the recipients of this years scholarship. After the awards ceremony I felt like I could've totally quit my job and run off to study somewhere... you know to become a Doctor of Fine Arts or a Master of Design... lol... Whoa there!!! Back it up Mrs C! One day...
Anyway I wish them all the best in their amazing future endeavours and will be watching out for their imminent future successes... I'm so excited for them all, congratulations guys!
