Photographer to capture local porch portraits
Daniel Island resident and photographer Peter Finger wants to help his neighbors look on the bright side of daily life during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Finger is starting a photography project he is calling “Pandemic Porch Portraits” and wants local residents to join in.
“My plan is to take creative, fun, upbeat portraits of families, individuals, pets stepping out on their porches, front yards or steps in order to show the community and the world that although we all take this virus seriously, we have not lost our sense of humor or optimism for the future,” he said.
Across the Lowcountry, photographers are finding ways to join the momentum nationwide of #TheFrontStepsProject.
Finger planned to kick off the portraits this week on Wednesday, March 25. Those who are interested in having their photos taken can text him at 843-801-2552 with their name, address and email, and he will schedule an appropriate time, noting it will only take about 5 minutes.
Finger will use a telephoto lens and will be maintaining a safe social distancing protocol.
