My daughter in law – Cathrine – turned 40 last month. I was engaged to document the celebration. It all started just over midnight when friends and family marked her day by waking her up just a minute into her birthday. And of course with cake, gifts, flags, flowers and …bubbles 🙂
She had the birthday party in a fine venue – the theater in Drammen, Norway. All the guests posed for the photographer when entering the venue. It was December in Norway and near the darkest day in the year. So some additional lighting was needed. The torches gave me a bit of of a puzzle. Anyway, monochrome is very close to my taste, so colors was not a problem. Notice the posters next to the doors.
Most of the images are shot handheld with my Sony RX100M5 camera. The posed image in the entrance was captured with my Nikon D610 on a tripod.
If you want happiness for an hour — take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day — go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year — inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime — help someone else. – Chinese Proverb
