Area Talent Shows Were a Delight to Photograph this Past Weekend


Friday night I was at the 2014 Athens Follies, “Remember the Feeling… Enjoy the Fun” and Saturday night I was at the 2014 Cabaret in Tekonsha, “Black Tie Affair, Under the Stars”.  Both productions were student based with assistance from teachers, parents and the community.

What was the most interesting between the 2  productions though was that the 2014 Athens Follies had mostly singing and choreographed dancing while the 2014 Tekonsha Cabaret was singing and skits or plays with acting.

Both events were held in their school’s gymnasium with public invited to watch.  Both events had a stage crew, ushers and programs but at Tekonsha the students really did run the show with lighting, music, curtains and communication. While the 2014 Athens Follies is open to all students K-12 the 2014 Tekonsha Cabaret was 7-12 grades.

I was amazed with the talent at both shows especially with some of the solo artists.  There was range from playing the guitar to saxophone and even a violin!

Now as a photographer, I will have to admit that the Follies and the Cabaret can be my most challenging events to photograph.  It is completely pitch dark in the gymnasiums with spotlights and stage lights but not controlled by me.  Freezing motion in this type of setting is extremely hard.  However, I always manage to get some good pictures even though I probably drove those sitting next to up the wall with the number of clicks they heard and all of my movement!

It was a delight to photograph Audrey’s Senior Portrait Session.  Audrey is an outgoing young lady who was recently a nominee for Homecoming Queen at Union City High School.  She enjoys Cross Country, Golf and playing her bass guitar in the Band.

We started out at Stuart’s Landing where we used the gazebo for some sport and band related pictures.  Then we stepped out side of the gazebo to capture Audrey with her favorite pair of running shoes.

Then we walked down to Perrin Dam.  There are some wonderful areas along the River Walkway in Marshall, Michigan that can be used for Portraits…  for example, this log that laid on a section of land just south of Perrin Damn.

Off to downtown Marshall where we took pictures along Jefferson Street utilizing the gorgeous red and brown brick walls with green doorways.

We even had Audrey’s family as lookouts for traffic while Audrey and I played in the street to capture these next shots.
