I have friends who raise Llamas and are into the world of Fiber. That was about all that I knew of the world of fiber. So when I was asked to attend The Hoosier Hills Fiber Festival last June of 2013 being held at the Johnson County Fairgrounds in Franklin, Indiana, I was a bit hesitant and had no idea just what I was about to encounter. Since I was recording stills and videos of the event, and was a one-man army, I was even a bit more uneasy. So I packed up my normal gear; a Canon T4i with 18-135 STM lens. a Bogen Monopod, a couple of SD cards and an a third battery for the camera. I also had my flash but really did not want to use it and brought no video lighting at all.
This is a a video done in a documentary style and is a collection of stills and video shorts. I hope that you enjoy this journey into the "World of Fiber and Fiber Art. With its varied types of fibers, spinning wheels, yarns, art, and also the many unexpected encounters with the wonderful people who really enjoy this beautiful world of color, texture and discovery.
Music used: "Whiskey on the Mississippi", "Long Road Ahead", Smash Sketch" and finally "Smash Snitch". All of these are from Royalty Free Music.com.
This is a video of 2 Indian weddings but mainly 1. It is a collection of stills and will give to you an idea of the flow of Hindu, Sikh and other various styles of Indian event. Some Weddings can last for days and it is true that some but not all couples have never met with the weddings being planned by the parents. US wedding are much more curtailed than those in the homeland because of the cost and distances involved. But regardless the Indian Wedding is one where you will have not only much fun but great food and music as well. The music on the video is authentic.

This is a new customer of mine and I thought that Iwould use a different way than just static pictures of their interior. So stills (active) put to music are the way that I chose to help create the mood of their beautiful interior. I got some of the staff involve as well as their customers on the evening that I was able to shoot. Canon EOS 450 still camera was used with Canon's IS 17-85mm lens. Hope that you enjoy the images.
