    Last Saturday I attended a harvest party for a church where I was asked to take portraits of kids who go to the church. The lighting wasn't very cooperative, and it was very cold and windy, but I managed to get a few decent ones. Here they are:

    I love the photos - I particularly love the B&W shots - very well done. The expressions on the kid's faces are priceless. One question, however, do you have permission from the parents to post these kids online? I only ask because we use release forms at our churches to give parents the option to refuse and to protect ourselves.

    Yes, I have permission. All parents were at attendance at the party and everything was handled during the party before the portraits were taken, not to mention the photos are already up on the church's public Facebook.

    Love the B/W shots. Very nicely done. Would be interesting to see a B/W treatment of the others.

    Great photos mate. The colour shots have beautiful tones and the black and whites are superb. Especially the expressions in the black and white ones.

    Looks like it was a fun day. Our small country church just had a charity harvest auction and the farmers were extremely generous and we raised $24,400 to go towards maintaining a medical helicopter. Such an entertaining night and everyone was in awe of the chocolate cake that sold for $1000!!

    Thanks everyone!

    I definitely plan on converting the color photos to BW eventually. I took quite a few photos, so I'm going to be post-processing for a few more days.

    Iconindustries - That must have been a really awesome tasting chocolate cake! :biggrin: Joking aside, that's really great your church raised so much money.
