HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!!
Last Friday night Kim and I had the opportunity to attend and photograph another event for the JDRF of Southern NJ. It was held at the home of the Camden Riversharks, Campbells Field in Camden, NJ. It was another great event even though it was in the upper 90′s when the game started. I can not begin to express how great this cause is and how great the people who are involved with the JDRF are. From the parents to the volunteers there was a smile on everyone’s face! What we did was set up a little, quick mini portrait area. I used a Calumet, 42″ 5 in 1 reflector in it’s basic translucent white configuration and had Kim hold it behind subject. We ended up shooting 30 or so portraits. We did pictures of the kids and some adults. All of whom have Type 1 Diabetes. There was nothing really fancy. Just down and dirty. Quick, casual portraits. Here’s a couple of examples of what we did. You can see the rest of them on my website. Here’s the link to the gallery; http://fullframefotography.com/p785988030
DIabetes effects so many people in this country (Your’s truly included) and to see these kids deal with the very specific regiment they must follow including multiple insulin injects daily was absolutely inspiring. Not one complained, cried or whined about their injections after eating. Just simply awesome. I cannot forget the volunteers. They didn’t complain or cry or whine either. (Well maybe a little bit about the heat. But it was 97 degrees for most of the event) They do such a great job of organizing and putting it all together. All for the kids. I am truly in awe and feel very privileged to be associated with this great group of people.
Enjoy your 4th. Be safe. And be awesome!
