PERSPECTIVE: 2010 Surrey Canada Day

On July 1st, Benjamin Luk Photography was hired to cover the 2010 Surrey Canada Day festivities at Cloverdale Millennium Amphitheatre. Much like the Surrey 2010 Celebration Site in February, the city of Surrey was offering a family-friendly environment for both young and old to be out celebrating in the community.

Multicultural entertainment as well as many popular bands were performing, and it was my job to capture both the performers and the celebration attendees. It wasn't as difficult to wrangle up families for group shots as I initially thought, and I came back with many images that would look great in a City of Surrey brochure.

I was more selective this time in what I was shooting, so I came back with 500+ high-quality images, which I then edited down to the 134 I ended up delivering. Each selected photo underwent standard colour correction and tonal adjustments to make each image as eye-catching as possible.
