Sharing a photo: POP!

Derek POP!
24mm-105mm f/4 lens, 40mm, 1/250, f/5.0, ISO 100.

Yesterday we were shooting an iPhone app commercial all afternoon out in Point Grey. It was a supremely gorgeous day and we wrapped at about 5pm. The light was so golden and yummy that I had to shoot some photos of our actor, Derek Pante.

I have always wanted to do a spontaneous photo shoot with bubbles, so I keep a bottle of bubble mix in my car.

Derek was awesome and blew a bunch of bubbles even though the mix was about a year old and the soap tasted super gross. I crouched down and waited for the perfect POP and voila! Bubble magic hour POP!

    Bubbles are great for getting children to smile and controlling where they look. You should always keep them handy if you think you’re going to have a chance to photograph children.
