High bidder at Steel Blossoms Auction

Our newspaper was one of several businesses that supported a charity auction for the local Red Cross chapter. This video is of the high bid during the event. I shot this with my mobile phone, which limited some capabilities, but it did the job.

Greg O’Connell was the high bidder at the Steel Blossoms auction Saturday night at the Moose Club in Dansville. The piece drawing the highest price at the auction was “Daisy” by AJ Smith (Dansville), Donald Ladue (Avon), Bradley Scism (Avon), Brett Diener (Livonia) and Justin Forkner (Avon).

This was one of my first video projects. Coverage of the Springwater Fiddlers Fair had always been a challenge since the experience is all about sound. Though the camera’s microphone quality was less than I would have liked, this was a great first step into video.
