Found this spiffy tool today that creates a tag cloud out of all the tags in my Flickr photostream. Clearly, I take a lot of photos whenever I visit Rochester, and no surprise, photos of ‘Ourkids’ dominate as well.
Another year, another installment of portraits of the children at the Grant Park Cooperative Preschool.
In a continuing trend, my frame count rose from 1600 in 2008 and 1800 in 2009 to over 2000 this year – and I think we managed to get everyone. Many thanks to my friend Joel Silverman (an amazing commercial photographer) for lending his lighting gear, as well as to all the volunteers who kept things rolling. It was all wonderful until I threw out my back moving one of those massive planters at the Grant Park campus – hopefully the physical therapy will cure that issue soon. I hope you enjoy the fruits of our labor!
A few children were photographed outside of their class time slot or were given more time to regain their composure, so you may find photos of your tots in non-consecutive order. Leaf through the galleries to be sure you’ve seen all there is to see!
Also, please note that these images have only been briefly color corrected and retouched. Once you pick your images, I will review them again for color accuracy, cropping, etc, so don’t be deterred if you think your little one looks too light or dark, etc. And remember that these images will work great at any size
To order prints: please download this PDF file and complete per instructions there. Checks made out to GPCP can be dropped into the envelope in either campus office marked “Fall Pictures Orders” by Friday, December 3rd. Remember, all proceeds benefit the GPCP, so order plenty for all your family, friends and loved ones!
So I was (willingly!) drafted once again to take the yearly class and individual photos of the Grant Park Cooperative Preschool a few weeks back. You can see an example of the results in the handsome young boys pictured above!
In an effort to capture even better and more authentic portraits of our little ones, my frame count rose from 1600 last year to 1800+ in 2009. I think we managed to get everyone! For those parents coming here to Trotz.com to peruse the images for purchase (all funds benefit the Preschool), please follow the links below to review the galleries.
As some of our little ones were less than cooperative, you may find photos of your tots in non-consecutive order in the galleries – so leaf through them to be sure you’ve seen all there is to see! It was again a pleasure, if somewhat challenging, working with the kids and the other volunteers to corral and capture these images all our kids – I hope you enjoy the fruits of our labor!
Note as well that these images have only been briefly color corrected and retouched. Once you pick your images, I will review them again for color accuracy, cropping, etc, so don’t be deterred if you think your little one looks light or dark etc, all these images here will work great at any size.
To order prints: please download the order form here (Microsoft Excel file, 26kb or Adobe PDF, 34k). Order forms should be turned into either GPCP office in the envelope marked with “Fall Pictures Orders” with check (made out to GPCP) or cash by Monday, November 30th. Order forms are also available at the offices.
Here are the best-of from this visit to Rochester. Despite some periods of rain, the boys have had a BLAST with their cousins, aunts, uncles, granparents et. al.
