April topic: Event photography

Submitted by mpicard on Thu, 03/15/2012 - 17:43

Event photography.
Weddings, graduations, proms, concerts, parades, races, art shows, store openings…. Events can be as big as a state funeral or as small as a child’s birthday party. Capture the scope and essence of the event in a recognizable way (e.g. a close up of a birthday cake candle can be any birthday, but the person blowing out the candles shows a specific birthday event.)
