Once again, I find it kind of humorous that for a person who isn’t really that big on the holidays, I have kept certain traditions that I don’t miss this time of the year. This time, it was the annual Heritage Society Candlelight Tour at Sam Houston Park. In fact, I had the honor of being the official photographer for the event and many of my pictures were used in their programs and other promotions! It’s one thing to just be a random guy at an event without any expectations and snap a few good pictures like I did at the Uptown Holiday Lighting, but I take a lot of pride in being given media access and know that many volunteers and dedicated people have prepared for an event. As such, I tried my best to capture their work. This year, the event started on Saturday so I got there early and even had a friend help with my gear and had a personal escort to the houses before the crowds got there. Our goal was to capture the character actors and I had a lot of fun! I highly recommend this event for families.

Despite the cold wind, the crowds were showing up
I also decided to come back the following day at sunset. Unfortunately, I had the camera on JPG for some reason so I couldn’t edit the pictures much. Still, my in camera settings were pretty close. I just like to pull out more detail out of the buildings.
