I don't take pictures…I make memories

Portraits and Poses

Beautiful Prom Portraits at the Scarborough Bluffs

Friday was an awesome day! I have to admit that I was a little hesitant to have this shoot because of the overhead sun, but it didn’t turn out so bad (we didn’t start until about 3:30pm).

Danielle and Shane were a wonderful couple and I’d also have to thank Danielle’s Father (and my friend) for being the perfect V.A.L.S. (Voice Activated Light Stand)…lol.

1st Event of 2010 – Family/Portrait Photography at the Toronto Zoo

Saturday February 21st, some ol’ school friends (literally) took advantage of my offer to have some photo’s taken of their family. The Kelly’s suggested that we meet at the Toronto Zoo and see if we can’t come up with a couple of nice portraits of their daughter, Elizabeth.

It was a perfect day, sunny but very brisk. The major challenge for me was capturing moments in the midday sun without over exposing and blowing out highlights.

We stopped by the Tundra Trek first and visited the Polar Bears.

After the Tundra Trek, we decided to head inside to a pavilion where it was a little warmer…HUGE mistake a my part. I’ve heard it a million times on podcasts about transitioning from one extreme to another and what happens to your lenses, but do you think I listened? Noooooooooo 😛 My 24-120 was pretty much useless for the rest of the adventure…all fogged up : So I pulled out nifty fifty and my SB-900 for the indoor shots.

It was a great time, Elizabeth was a great sport and a cute subject!

Thanks to the Kelly Family for helping me out and I hope we can do it again some time. 🙂
