People and portraits

We love to see ourselves in pictures. Probably more than 90% of the photographs in the average photo album are people pictures. Sure, pictures of pets can be appealing, superb landscapes can take our breath away and undersea images can capture our imagination, but people pictures are in a class of their own.

From the family snapshot to a formal portrait, good people pictures convey a message. The picture can tell a story, show relationships or provide inspiration.

In most cases, conveying a message is not that difficult. You simply have to think before you click the shutter. Occasionally, you will see it before you in a candid shot, and will have to capture it quickly before it is interrupted.

When taking school pictures, some photographers simply pose the child in front of the camera and take a picture - sort of like an assembly line. Others take the time, albeit brief, to interact with the child and evoke a pleasant aspect of his or her character that will be revealed in the picture.

Gimme Shelter

NOVEMBER 29, 2010 - New bus shelters designed for Harvey Ave in Kelowna were recently installed and lit up - and not just for Christmas.
The BC company responsible for the modern shelters - Tara Precision - asked me to capture a variety of shots in different times of day.
The night shots required some extra light - which I triggered with my RadioPopper transmitters. Working at a distance with traffic in between, I enjoyed the remote ability to adjust flash power from my camera.

Ogogrow on the go

NOVEMBER, 2010 - Gordon Light poses under new air piping added to the Kelowna/Vernon Bio-solids plant for a cover shot on TPO Magazine.
The plant produces Ogogrow - a local fertilizer/soil that provides some helpful income for the waste operation.

Lofty landscape

OCTOBER, 2010 - Some 20 stories above ground, the rooftop of Invue Condominium tower boasts some interesting landscaping.

I enjoyed photographing the feature for Stantec Engineering - even as it required quick adjustment of multiple flash units to blend with the sun as it changed intensity quickly while sinking into the horizon.
