2016 Canyon County Fair

July 31, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

It was time to start planning for the Canyon County Fair. As with past years, I had a decision to make: which portraits to display at the Canyon County Fair. I like to support our local fair and display my work with some of the local people that I have the privilege to photograph.  This year was no different. I decided to submit images in 4 different categories: adult portrait, child portrait, sports, and black & white.

 

For the adult portrait category, I submitted a portrait of Tricia Gillaspy. Tricia had seen some of my tulle skirt images I had posted on Facebook. She really liked the look and was excited to be photographed in one of the skirts. During the session, we talked about her tattoos and I decided to feature them in some of the images. Retouching included really fluffing up the dress and adding volume to it.

 

 

For the child portrait category, I submitted a portrait of Anica Asumendi. This was a fun concept session that I blogged about before (http://tempusphotodesign.com/blog/2016/2/caldwell-portrait-photographer---leaf-dress). I went big with this one. At 24x36, this really made an impact.

 

 

For the sports category, I submitted a portrait of Davis Peterson. For his senior portraits, Davis wanted to be photographed in his lacrosse uniform. We were able to find a soccer net at the College of Idaho and got this great shot of Davis. 

 

 

For the black and white category, I submitted a portrait of Eric Hauser.  Eric's senior portraits included an outfit with Eric wearing a white shirt, black tie and black cowboy hat. With the natural wood in the background, this image was perfect for a classic black and white portrait.

 

 

I know that these days many people rely on their smart phones to look at their family history, but a printed portrait is so much more. It is something you get to see everyday and transforms a house into a home.  If you're thinking about updating your walls with new portraits, feel free to contact me for more information.
