Happy 2012

Happy 2012, a photo by Iguanasan on Flickr.
I was asked to photograph the Herring Cove Polar Bear Dip this year by a friend of mine who organizes the event. He saw the photos I got last year of Rick Mercer and Ron James and all the other people who had jumped and thought I might be able to help out with photographs.

I didn't want to just sit on the other side of the cove and photograph the jumpers again, I wanted to do something different. With the help of my friends at the Sackville Photography Club we set up a "photo booth".

We took a bunch of before the jump shots plus we had 3 people in and around the jumpers and two people on the other side of the cove with long lenses. We covered the event pretty completely. It was a blast. The studio session was so much fun, I'll have to do it again sometime.

You can find the results on Smugmug at http://polarbeardip.smugmug.com/  We kept the costs as low as possible and any profit will go back to the Feed Nova Scotia. I hope people will get to enjoy their photos and make some prints. Everyone wins!
