Last night, September 21st, 2006, I had the pleasure of photographing some new residents getting their Habitat house keys, for the homes built for them in this years Habitat Blitz build. There were three homes, for three families, and they were overjoyed to be getting their new homes.
The Habitat staff and volunteers were great as they made the presentations to the new homeowners, and to photograph all of the activities was a ton of fun. The photos (numbering something just under 400) were all sent to the staff at Habitat for Humanity for their use.
These people at Habitat do wonderful things for families, and watching the results of their work last night was a pleasure.
I spend so much time shooting images after dark, that having two cameras in my hands during the daytime was almost a strange experience. I set up a Nikon CP8700 to shoot crowd shots, and used a Canon 350D for the ceremonies and for the documentation photos done at all three homes. I had a blast doing this for Habitat, and would do it again anytime.
Good work to the Directors, volunteers and staffers at Habitat for Humanity.
