LEDs don't appear to have any of those health risks whatsoever and are extremely energy efficient. But we're not here to talk about our health or Canadian law...just thought I'd pass that along....
redLetter is a beautiful store in the downtown core of Toronto. Just in time for Valentine's Day they have super cute heart-shaped cups and saucers (which I'm told comes as a recommendation from Oprah herself). The store is beautifully designed and is well worth a look next time you're in Yorkville.
Auto Exposure Bracketing and Perspective
The store uses Evoled lights at the front and since the subject was a set of lights in action, it meant I didn't have to bring any lights of my own. The trick was capturing them at their best. Early evening is a good time to see just the lights without having to compete with daylight and resulting store front reflections from the glass.

It's amazing how much you can alter an image captured as a RAW file, but if I know there might be issues later...I don't want to have to go back and shoot it again.
