A World Away (but not far at all)

This past weekend, last weekend in January, it wasn’t too cold, mid 40’s and after the epic, “First Week”  we were really looking forward to getting out of the city for a couple nights. Mike and I went up to visit Boaty up in LaConner and even though it’s winter and we’re not going to leave the dock, it’s a great little place to go for a two night stay. We brought the terrible twins (the dogs), thankfully the rain held off until Sunday afternoon because wet dogs all weekend would stink. Literally. I washed…

Working Rehearsal of Nutcracker at Evergreen City Ballet

Nutcracker at Evergreen City Ballet

I had the pleasure of being invited to photograph a working rehearsal of Nutcracker for the Evergreen City Ballet in Renton.  Friends and family were invited to attend the working rehearsal, a new idea for their program brought to them by their new Executive Director, Julie Tobiason.  It was wonderful to see families as friends gathered to watch their children as Artistic Director, Gillmer Duran, worked them through the performance rehearsal. Family and friends can see the effort that brings such delight to the performers and the audience and the commitment of everyone to…

Photo booth at the Gala

Gala Auction St. Alphonsus

GlimmerGlass Photography was invited back to capture the St. Alphonsus Parish School’s Annual Gala Auction — and this year, in addition to our photo-booth setup, we also did prints ON SITE! It was AWESOME! GEEK NOTE: I used Iford Premier paper for the prints and I was so impressed with the quality. It wasn’t just my camera clicking, everything about this particular Gala evening definitely “CLICKED!” The Auction is usually called, “FUND A DREAM” but this year they did a little play on that calling it, “Fund-A-Green” because the goal is to…

Fog and Tulle

Inspired by some of the photography groups I see on Facebook, I thought I’d plow right into the fog and tulle technique and see where it goes. Being that it’s halloween time, dry ice is ubiquitous this time of year at many of the local grocery markets. I’ve never worked with dry ice before and it’s surprising to meet so many people who’ve never actually seen it up close in action before.  To prepare a little, I went to the Daily Chang blog to see some of his ideas and also looked…

Elisabeth Rocks the Glam

Elisabeth came by and we had a sensational glam session, she totally rocked it.  Slender, sassy and long legs – not a model but she could be if she wanted.  I needed to stand on a box most of the time to stay at eye level with her.  We rounded out the session with some “pinterest” shot ideas, we incorporated lots of poses for the shoot and had so much fun. Her glasses she couldn’t wear, the lenses were throwing off some harsh green glow. Without the glasses she resembles, at least…
