BLACK AND WHITE FRIDAY - Worship with a Symphony

A couple months ago my church had a special event - members of two local symphony organizations came together with the regular worship team at my church and created a very special worship time.  I was blessed with the opportunity to capture the photos for this event.

While the event on that Sunday morning was fantastic, I must admit that for me the greatest part was the practice on the Thursday night before.  I was generously granted permission to roam among the musicians to get photographs.

Being an evening event, the room was really quite dark, and I didn't want to use flash and cause disruption, so I knew this was a perfect opportunity to create some black and white photos.  And it was!

These photos were designed to capture not only the making of art, but the relationship between these artists and their instruments as well as their relationship with each other.

This is not likely to be a frequent occurence, so I am pleased the opportunity came my way.  But I have to tell you, if I could do this every day, I don't think I would ever tire of it.  I mean, who wouldn't want to practice their passion without restriction in the middle of stunning music!

This is one of the relationships that I wish I could have access to every day - Father and son, father is the symphony director at Montana State University, and the young man is an aspiring violin player who got to be mixed in with all the college students for the evening.  BEAUTIFUL!

That is what photography is all about!  Capturing moments like this!
