A few days ago I had the pleasure of covering an important event in a young man's life. Reaching the age of Bar Mitzvah signifies that a person who was once a boy, is now ready to take on the world as a man. It was a great party. Eric has a lot of great friends and family that came out to celebrate with him. His passion for hockey was displayed all throughout the room along with a cardboard cut out of Eric in full hockey gear.
I tried my best to capture Eric's personality and create a great memory for him. With his Mother and Sister by his side he gracefully took the lead into showing his guests a great time.
This was a great event for me to experience what I can do on my own. Armed with a hot shoe flash and a 2nd body with a 50mm f1.4 I was able to capture a lot more than I would if I only had one camera body with me. Of course the light was a bit tricky at times, but I learned a lot during this shoot. I wish Eric and his friends all the best.
PS. Who Knows? Maybe I'll shoot his wedding some day...:)
