Kenny Linn, our editor and DP, and I spent the entire day Thursday shooting various churches all around Sedgwick, Harvey and Reno Counties. And when say the "entire day," I mean from 10:30 a.m. to 8:15 p.m.
Amazingly, we were able to work all the shoots we wanted around the sporadic rain and hail showers that hammered us all afternoon. The highlight of the day was meeting up with my crazy friend Rachael, who was more than happy to show us her favorite unusual churches in Hutchinson. We got lost at least three times, and at one point Kenny fell asleep as we were flying down a muddy country road.
This was our last scheduled day of shooting, and the shots were not as easy as you might think. For example, St. Mary's Catholic Church was recommended to us by a handful of former Newton residents, and it is beautiful, but all these power lines prevented us from getting a clean shot of the front. Pictured here is Kenny trying to get a nice shot of its side, but we ended up cutting it in our editing session later than night.
Oh yes, the editing. We ended up doing that at Kenny's house all night. I left his house at nearly 5 this morning.
