Last week we already had some very warm days here in Toronto. Temperatures rose up to 26ºC and we were not the only people that wanted to spend time outside, feel the warm sun and recharge batteries. Although the winter did not seem this hard this year it was still long and cold. I still take my camera outside and take picture during the winter but it is very difficult to take photos of people. Not only is it hard for the model and the photographer to be out in the cold and move little but although there is lot less light and it gets dark a lot earlier. Last week after work we took my camera and flash and headed out for a little walk near Lake Ontario. Since I have my favorite model always with me we took some shots with the softbox. During the winter it hardly came out of its bag. Now I hope that the winter is really over, spring fully starts and we can take lots of pictures like this.
