Ribbon Cutting at All About Scrubs
January 12, 2013 • Leave a Comment
One of my goals this year was to start a blog. I thought about creating a blog in the past, but really hesitated because I already spend so much time on the computer editing photos and posting to social network sites. The more I think about it, a blog could be an interesting way to tell the story about some of my photos.
With this being a new beginning, I thought it would be very fitting to post photos of something new. A business called All About Scrubs is opening up in Covington, TN. I joined the South Tipton County Chamber of Commerce this year and attended the Ribbon Cutting ceremony this morning for All About Scrubs.
The owners were there along with several Chamber members to show their support. Because I recently decided not to focus so much on portraiture, but landscape and nature photography, I wanted to take this opportunity to use photography skills I haven't used much lately.
When I made my initial camera equipment purchase, I bought a Canon 580ex II flash. My choice was either an additional lens or flash. I chose the flash because it would allow me to photograph in places with low light, whereas if I bought another lens I wouldn't have the flexibility to get such a variety of quality shots. The flash also gives me more ways to make creative shots by getting the flash off-camera.
This is one example of where I have found the flash coming in really handy. The inside of the store is well lit with florescent ceiling lights and the exterior light coming in from the front windows, but it's still not enough to bring out the shadows. Here are some inside shots from All About Scrubs. All shots use the Canon 580ex II flash bounced off the walls behind me or to the side of me.
If you are in need of scrubs, this is the place to go. With this shop opening in Covington, no one will have to drive into Memphis or Dyersburg to purchase scrubs. Being in a rural community means sometimes driving quite a bit to get some things.
