In August, I was asked to photograph children’s hands for a fundraiser, which took place last night. Four local agencies: Daystar, Rochester Childfirst Network, Bivona, and Villa of Hope held a dinner at the Monroe Country Club in Pittsford. I donated 12 hand photos I took at three of the agencies, which were blown up for display, as you can see here.
It’s always encouraging to see my photos stand up to magnification like this (although this shot off my phone doesn’t do them justice). At least one person asked if the photos themselves could be auctioned off last night.
It was a delight to work in a challenging environment: low light and children moving fast (as they always do!). The kids were so curious about what I was doing that even the shy ones let me shoot once they could see themselves on my camera display screen. A few of them even tried to swipe the screen to view the next photo… children of technology for sure!
