Grab Shot 126 - "Mom with Child at NYC Highbrow Party"


As part of my PhotoPlus activities, I was invited to the Digital Photo Masters Event last night, which took place on the 22nd floor of the AT&T building on the Avenue of the Americas in NYC. The atmosphere felt very New York trendy to this California boy -- loft with high ceiling, lots of artwork, expensive shoes, dispassionate DJ, and an air of importance.

Among the highbrow activity was a nicely-booted mom with child in tow. It was odd to see a child in this otherwise very adult setting. At one point the child had a clothing malfunction prompting the mom to do what mothers do best... quickly remedy the situation and get back to business.

I set my Canon G9 on the floor and peered down into the LCD monitor to line up this shot. Settings were ISO 400, flash off, 1/8 of a second at f-3.5, image stabilizer on, using Raw capture. Having my camera out and ready to shoot enabled me to capture this grab shot.

It can trim your offline marketing tolls too if you get it done properly. Finding somebody who not only does SEO but does the content conception and distribution for you as well as keyword research, updating content on your site and blog, having professionaly published press releases at low prices as remarked previous is what suits many small business owners and yet there are many who try out to do it themselves, they get stuck as they dont have the cognition or the technical skills to do it promptly and they lay off.
