Trip To Texas
Michele and I went to Texas to visit our son Patrick at Ft. Hood.
While there we did a bit of sight seeing and photography in the San Antonio area. Look for the Natural Bridge Caverns in the Landscape files and numerous Spanish Missions (including the Alamo) in the Archetectural folder. Thanks for visiting!
CCA covers Holiday Party
Kane Family Holiday Party
Cooper Creative Arts was honored to be asked to photograph the annual holiday party for the Kane Family. The location was the Kahkwa Club in MillCreek Twp. near Erie, Pa. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We enjoyed capturing the holiday memories for them.
Are there memories you would like us to capture for you? It's not too soon to start planning for prom, senior and graduation pictures.
CCA does autumn Landscape trip
Michele and Paul took a trip through the Allegheny Nation forest and Elk County, PA to catch the majesty of the fall colors in the Appalachian mountains. Check out the images in the gallery. All are available for sale.
Autumn Family Portrait
Autumn Color at Wintergreen George Cemetery
Cooper Creative Arts was excited to be asked to do autumn family pictures for Brian & Kasey. We did maternity photos for Kasey last year. It was a gorgeous day. We choose Wintergreen Gorge Cemetery for the backdrop. Scouting showed the best light for that site is about 9 am in early October. They were pleased with the results.
One off camera light was used for fill flash and highlights.
WV Haunted Tour
Black Water Falls / WV
Landscape Photography trip to West Virginia.
Michele and I celebrated our 16th anniversary by touring West Virginia. We started by spending some time in prison. The closed WV Penitentiary at Moundsville. We capture some striking black and white images. We followed it up by stopping at the Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum. We failed to find Casper at either location, though both are said to be very haunted.
We did an assignment and got a black and white image in a coal mine. The client was very pleased with the result. It was challenging, as the tour operator does not allow you to get out of the train car. Composition was pretty much what we could get from our seat at the few spots we stopped at.
The remaining stops were landscapes at the New River Bridge, Black Water Falls and Babcock State Park... the much photographed Glade Creek Mill.
It's not too early to start thinking about senior pictures. As we are in the last half of summer and fall is approaching, it's a good time to arrange a shoot if outdoor autumn pictures are what you are looking for.
Also start making plans for holiday family pictures.
