Black and White Wednesday - " A Model Shoot "

PhSho UPM #2 June 2011 405 WM

Are you looking for my kids?

Nope, narry a kid to be found.

A while back I joined a few Photography Associations here in Montreal - and I'm always reading about all the fun shoots they go to but never got to one yet.

Till last Sunday.

It was suppose to be at this beautiful park but at the last minute the venue changed because rain was threatening. So about 25 photographers (United Photographer of Montreal ) met under the Jacques Cartier bridge (it's pretty big) and the models showed up. The urban setting was actually more in keeping with the style of the models anyway so nothing was lost.

And everybody brought yummy food. Someone made tandori salmon (oh mama that was good!!) and home made wine and plenty of good stuff.

After about 4 hours of shooting I had used up both cards (8Gbites each) so it was time to stop for me.

the long road

Take a look at some beautiful photography at Lisa's site today.

Of course, the best part of the day was seeing our car drive up at the end of the day, window rolled down and 2 little munchkin voices screaming...."MAMA MAMA!"

PhSho UPM #2 June 2011 496 WM-2 was a pretty cool day!

Hope your week is halfway to perfect.

Oh my goodness Wanda! I am so glad you had such a great time! I am glad you are meeting so many great people and making all kinds of new friends! It looks like it was VERY fun : )

Mom2Isabel said...

I am SO jealous! CAn we come live up there with you? What an awesome opportunity. I wish we had an association like that down here.

Your shots are amazing.. as always, but I have to say that first B+W one took my breath away. Something about her attitude actually reminded me of your oldest daughter.

Well done, my friend!
