This is a duplicate of a post found on the main Eye For Detail site, which is why the picture above doesn’t quite fit the space. I’m trying to solve that.

We had the honour of being invited to be part of Gradfest 2011 this year in Dawson Creek and joined an amazing party celebrating with the graduates into the middle of the night. Located at the Encana Events Centre the grads had two floors full of entertainment including laser tag, nascar racing, sumo wrestling and a fab DJ. Eye for Detail provided a photo booth where grads could walk away with a souvenir of the event: three pictures on a photo strip, and the grads took full advantage of our booth and had a blast posing. Here are some of our favourites from the night, we were right beside the dance floor and the sumo’s so we just had to include a few of our favourite candid shots as well.

We’ve put up all the pictures from the photo booth. You can find them here: http://www.facebook.com/graditude. Please feel free to tag anyone you know (you may have to like the page first). There are some more images that we’ll put up in the next day or two, but for now, check those out.

Leah and the horse

Filed under Dawson Creek Graduation Photography • Written by colette @ 6:35 pm

Since I posted the shots of Leah and the Waterfall, it is only fair to post these shots of her with a horse. These were actually shot on the same day, but a change in location and outfit got us a completely different feeling shoot.

Leah and the Waterfall

Filed under Dawson Creek Graduation Photography • Written by colette @ 6:35 pm

I blogged this one over on the main Eye For Detail Page, but thought it worth mentioning here. This is Leah. At Quality Falls near Tumbler Ridge. In a dress.

I’m really starting to love the contrast between elegant formal wear and these real rustic, outdoor settings.

This was not a planned shoot in the sense that we had arranged to go out and take pictures. On the other hand, there has been a half dozen or so killer sunsets, and each one that goes by without me having a person to photograph breaks my heart.

And I’ve been trying to get a grad in full regalia in front of a sunset for … wow, longer than I care mention.

But, back to the unplanned grad shoot. I was at the Tumbler Ridge grad with my portable studio taking shots of anyone who wanted photographs. The dance had started, and most of the parents had cleared out, so I grabbed my portable flash on a stick, and went down to take pictures of the teens dancing.

I had barely done two test shots when I looked out the door and saw the sky was aflame. And the door opens away from the sunset, so I knew that what was happening on the other side was going to be even more spectacular. I grabbed my flash, and grabbed the closest grad I could, and we ran out to get some shots.

Fortunately for me, the closest grad happened to be Danielle, who, in addition to being whip smart (class valedictorian, dontchaknow), is also drop dead gorgeous.

Danielle Rockin’ the new backdrop

Filed under Dawson Creek Graduation Photography • Written by trent @ 9:11 am

I like shooting on location, out of doors and slice of life. But every once in a while, I like playing around in the studio, too. So I went out and got a bunch of new backdrops with a bit more colour and a bit more character than my typical black and white backdrops.

Here’s Danielle, rockin’ one of the new backdrops.

UPDATE: FIXED! We are experiencing technical difficulties

Filed under Dawson Creek Graduation Photography • Written by trent @ 11:52 pm

WOOT!

We’re back, baby!

Mad props (do people still give out mad props these days? I’m so behind the times) to Billy. Not Billy the grad, Billy the IT guy over at my webhost who spent nearly two days to track down some obscure code error to get it fixed.

Thank you.

So, somewhere in the last few days a couple bits of core tech that run this website have stopped communicating.

I’m trying to track the issue down, but for now, there are lovely pink boxes where the pictures should be.

Sorry; I’m trying to troubleshoot as fast as I can….

Leah’s Dawson Creek Dance

So, a few weeks back I went to Dawson Creek. This is not that unusual, but while I was there, I rounded up one of my favourite soon-to-be graduates, and took some pictures of her line dancing. The last time I photographed her, we did a few pics of her line dancing, too, but they didn’t turn out, so I promised I’d take more.

These ones? They turned out. We did these in studio with a five light set-up, just for fun.
