My Birthday :: Personal Shooting

Hey Gang,

Wedding season is really starting to ramp up, so I was excited to get a chance to do some personal shooting especially on my birthday. I am always on my computer or looking at books that are photography related, finding inspiration and a new perspective. But on this day, my family surprised me and took me to the Art Gallery of Ontario.  I have to admit it was so cool to take in a different kind of art.  Photography, literally translated “is to write with light”.  It was people like Rembrandt, Picasso and Da Vinci who inspired photographers to see light in the way they did.  I also got to go downtown to do a little street shooting with my new toy *wink*; it doesn’t get any better than that!

I had such a great birthday! Thanks again to everyone for all of the sweet and warm wishes.
