40th Birthday party with a 40s theme
On Saturday November 3, 2012 I photographed a family friends 40th birthday at Mac’s Brewery, upstairs in the function room overlooking the waterfront. The party was 40’s Casablanca themed with casino tables and there were some amazing costumes.
The party also had casino tables set up. In this case someone is winning or loosing big at black jack. Even the dealer looks surprised!
I was really happy with this ‘action shot.’ The motion of the dice at the slower shutter speed worked well to accentuate the moment.
I was really impressed by the army uniforms that were worn. I really felt like I was photographing on a movie set again, like the Devils Rock the year before.
The family portrait. I made sure to get as many of these as possible early on as parties can get too manic to get everyone back together for a photo.
