Capturing Talent...

I was tasked with taking the official North Port Orchestra photo this year. It's a job I was happy to do. Capturing talent for posterity. I arrived at the end of yesterday's dress rehearsal and took the picture before the concert. They'll be using this photo for print media, as well as their website image. I know everyone looks tiny, but it can't be avoided if everyone is going to fit in the image. Perhaps another time I'll take photos of each section. I just might have to propose that!

At the end of the concert, I was asked to present the flower bouquets to our soloists. Yup, me onstage. With an armful of gorgeous, fragrant flowers. I'll be back onstage for the Chorale concert on Thursday evening! We'll be performing with the North Port Concert Band (Handsome on percussion), and I'm really looking forward to it!

Today, I'll be in the studio again. The queen size quilt is more intricate (read, taking longer) than I expected. I'll update you with my progress on Tuesday. Hope you have a fun and creative day where you live!

Hi Donna,
I'm just getting caught up on reading my favorite blogs...I hate getting behind!
Now I have to add professional photographer to your list of talents!! I know what you mean about fitting everyone in the image. My son was in the band in high school. It was a large band and very difficult to photograph as a group. You did a great job.
Have a wonderful week.
Jane

This is a lovely gathering of musicians and the picture is wonderful. I do like your idea of getting photos of the different sections to feature on the website. Enjoy the performance...
