Church posters

I shoot a lot of pictures for my church, Saint Luke’s Parish (Episcopal) in Darien, CT. Recently I was asked to shoot some images of various activities and ministries of the church, with the pictures to go on large poster-sized prints in a stairwell leading down to the parish hall.  The prints were installed today. In the picture above, these three young ladies are members of the youth choir and are practicing the hand bells – and having a good time hamming it up for the camera as well.

Ther image above is from a summer Vacation Bible School our church runs – for our children as well as kids from some neighboring towns. It’s an amazing enterprise. I had to figure out how to get all the kids – well over 100 – inside the frame.  With a bit of trepdation, I got up on a roof to get this shot. The print is blown up to a size of 40 by 56 inches, and each person is clearly recognizable.

The last image, below, is from Vacation Bible School as well.  I like the intensity and concentration in this girl’s face – as well as the streak of green paint in her hair, which doesn’t seem to bother her at all. But how did Mom feel when she got home?

    Blake, The photos are wonderful. I can only imagine how much fun you must have had with the kids while taking them. Did you come home with any paint on your cameras?
