Last week, I had the privilege of observing a memorial service at Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, Utah. As part of the service, attendees were invited to take a piece of ribbon, write the name of a deceased loved one on it, and add it to a wreath of remembrance.
As the social media specialist for the hospital, I decided to take a photo of the wreath and share it on the hospital’s Facebook page. But I liked the photo and thought I would share it with all of you to help recognize Memorial Day and honor all of those who have gone before us, and the military men and women who have served or continue to serve.
I took this photo using a 50mm lens with a wide aperture to help the wreath pop more from the background. I used a Canon Speedlite 430 EXII, bouncing the light off the ceiling to help illuminate the wreath, too. All in all, I really like how the photo turned out and was glad I was able to use my photography skills to capture something that honors those who have gone before us.
