My friends at Ascending Koi tattoo and apparel are the nicest group of people I know in calgary [period]. They have fundraisers almost weekly and usually in the form of a friendly block party anyone can attend.
These are photos of the guests at one such party.
We had originally planned to have a standard grey background, but it was windy and I was like "I'm setting this up to create the most visually stunning photos I can with the given space". They had a shrub, I used it. A shrub, A Canon 60D, 24-70mm f2.8 Lens, wireless flash triggers and Alienbee 1600 light with beauty dish.
