I received a Christmas card from Olympus Europe yesterday, YAY! It probably arrived before Christmas but our mailbox got pried and I did not get the new key from Canada Post until yesterday. I wasn't expecting this although they contacted me recently because they wanted to include one of my photos in a book they are working on. I did not know they created a Christmas card as well and they included one of my photos in it. Can you guess which one is mine?

It is my second time shooting my daughter's Christmas concert (third if you include a spring musical event). The first time was last year and this post is about my experiences so far shooting such an event. I'm shooting mainly for myself, it's not for the school and most of all I'm not being paid to produce photos for the event. Hopefully it will help the other dads or moms out there and give them ideas to get more keepers. Events like this are a challenge because you have no control over lighting and most of the time the scene is dark with harsh lighting. Also, your point of view (POV) can be a problem depending on what you want to produce. I can compare shooting an event like this to shooting sports but I think there's less subject movement.

In my last posting about my user experience with the Expert Shield Screen Protector I forgot to mention that my contact at Expert Shield offered giveaways for my readers. I don't have many readers so I'll just make it first come first serve. The first two to comment can get an Expert Shield screen protector either for your camera or phone. After you comment I'll get in touch with you so I can hook you up with my contact and we can go from there. Cheers!
