Last night I took photos for L’man Achai at their annual Outreach Chinese auction. L’man Achai runs a lot of programs, the two main ones; a Yeshiva (Jewish School) and the Summer Camp. You may remember my photos from the summer over there, click here for that.

So here are some photos from last night:

Panning is a photographic technique that provides great separation of subject from background.

The technique is very simple in theory, but takes some practice to perfect.

Here is how it works, you set your camera to a relatively low shutter speed.  Say 1/80 or 1/40 of a second. Next you find a subject that is moving from one side of the frame to the other. Here comes the tricky part. While keeping the subject in a fixed part of the frame (and you do that by panning the lens from side to side) click the shutter.

I spent my summer at Camp L’man Achai. L’man Achai is a camp made for non-religious Jewish kids, it’s mission is to give kids some knowledge about Judaism during their stay. For the first Month of Camp I was the Photographer (among other things).  For the month of August though I was a Counselor.

Here are some of the photos I took (more to come):

Yep, you heard me. Under the freeway. You know, where all the ivy grows and black soot collects. Where random Taco Bell trash exists, and you wonder how it got there–then start to think about it–then shudder at your thoughts. Yep, that’s where we went. Ideal photo shoot location for a family with two boys under six? You wouldn’t think, but we went for it anyway! ;)
