Run or Dye

Today an event called 'Run or Dye' was being held at Castle Howard. Julie was entered with a couple of her friends Hannah and Suzanne. Even the kids, Ashleigh and Erin, got to join in with the fun. The dye was corn starch so hopefully there will be no stained clothes. Of course all the entrants received a T-shirt so most were wearing those.

There were official photographers at the event and I was just there to record the fun for Julie and her friends. It was a very relaxed atmosphere and a great time was had by all. I'm sure that they will all be entering again next year (if it returns).

This is how they all ended, what a state they looked!

I'm glad that I was watching this from outside the cloud!

There seemed to be a never ending supply of dye and great fun was had by all!

A great evening with the Rat Pack

Last night was my big chance to try event photography. A select group of us from the Photographic Society were invited to be the official photographer for the Rat Pack Show at the Scarborough Spa.

Although this is something I wanted to try the nerves were there before the show. I know that I have the photographic skills but could I apply them during a fast paced show. Below you will find a few of my images from the evening so you can judge for yourselves.

At the end of the day my experience was that I loved it, the time flew by and I thoroughly enjoyed capturing images of the show. It was a great show and although it was difficult to manage taking the photographs while the lights were constantly changing I had a fantastic time. Today has been spent in front of the computer processing my files but I am really pleased with the results.

Next month I am shooting my first wedding and after last nights experience I am really looking forward to it. Who knows this could be the start of a career in event photography!

Anyway, I'd love to hear your comments on the images I captured. Maybe you have an event coming up and are looking for a photographer!
