I shot this Bat Mitzvah Portrait before the party started at Broken Sound Country Club. We started the photography an hour before the guests arrived. After a few nice casual photos of Sara, (our Bat Mitzvah Girl) around the club. Then we took the country club golf cart to the front entrance of Broken Sound Country Club. I positioned Sara and her sister with the sun behind them which created the beautiful backlighting in this portrait.
Bat / Bar Mitzvahs are one of my favorite events to photograph. There is always so much to shoot I never get bored. Over my years as a photographer I have shot many different types of photography and covered a wide range of different assignments. As a result of working on so many different assignments I've become skilled at covering Bat / Bar Mitzvahs. During the course of photographing at Mitzvah I find that I'm often a portrait photographer, photographing not only the Bat Mitzvah girl but also her family and relatives as well. Then before the party starts, I'm usually found photographing the ballroom decor. In the ballroom there is almost always beautiful decor and/or flowers. In addition the room is often lit with come kind of colored up-lighting. Luckily for me Im skilled in balancing me camera lighting with the back lighting which results in beautiful color correct decor without loosing the up-lighting effect. Then once to party starts I shift gears and become an action photographer, This is a completely different type of photography compared to portraits and decor photos. It's the fact that Bat / Bar Mitzvahs require so many different types of photographic skills that I enjoy photographing them.
