The Art Guild 2024 Members Showcase reception & awards

The Art Guild’s Members Showcase Garden Party is my favorite TAG reception each year because the awards ceremony is held outdoors and there’s live music. 

Singer and musician RITA POSILLICO’s  musical talent and choice of songs were pitch perfect.

Here’s Rita singing, but the photos I really enjoyed capturing of her were when I ran into her walking along a path behind Elderfields after the event.

  • Arch Support

STEVE SILBERSTEIN, a fellow Nikon Z8 fan, noticed mine was outfitted with a Nikkor Z 135mm f/1.8 S Plena lens. I was interested in capturing portraits, not documenting the event. Using my gear, he captured this portrait.

Then he showed me a great spot to capture portraits at Elderfields Preserve – the ivied brick arch at the north side of the house. When the subject stands a bit in front of the arch, it acts as a light box:

It was the first event I used my Nikkor Z 24-100mm f/4 S lens with the Nikon Z9 to capture photos. When I saw fellow photographer STEVE SILBERSTEIN, who also uses a Nikon Z9, we heartily agreed the mirrorless camera’s focus is amazing.

Though I didn’t take many photos that afternoon, the camera and lens combo was a solid fit for the occasion, which also was no surprise.
