Montreal By Debra Schoenberger **Book review and Giveaway**

When I was asked to read this book, I read it all in one go, as photography is quite an interest for me. It hasn't always but since I started the blog,
I have yearned to learn how to take photographs properly. This book is quite inspirational and I love that it is all natural photos, there are none that are posed and it brings to life, the streets of Montreal. It shows photos of things you may well walk past in your everyday life and not take the time to look at them. It makes art out of the city and shows what normal life is all about in the city.

Book Synopsis:

Street photographer, Debra Schoenberger aka "girl with camera" captures the more unusual side of Montreal in her foot travels around the city. The images portrayed in the book are from 2010 to 2014

View more photos from her world travels on her profile page at Your Shot National Geographic.

Photographer​'s Bio:

My dad always carried a camera under the seat of his car and was constantly taking pictures. I think that his example, together with pouring over National Geographic magazines as a child fuelled my curiosity for the world around me. Although I worked in the field of photography for over 20 years, it wasn't until very recently in 2010 that I bought myself a secondhand professional camera and started experimenting with street photography. I shot over 50,000 images that first year and gradually began to improve.

Photographers I admire are Vivian Maier, Robert Frank, Steve McCurry and Edward Steichen to name but a few amongst the many incredibly talented people over the last century.
​ ​Street photography is my true passion. Having a slightly off-kilter sense of humour helps keep me looking for the unusual."
