LANDSCAPES part 3

These quick tips are not essential to every landscape picture you take, but bear them in mind and apply them judiciously to improve your scenic images.

* Don't let the weather stop you from capturing an attractive landscape. Rain can add a degree of softness and peacefulness to a scene. On an overcast day, be sure your scene has an area of color in it to counteract the overall dull lighting.
* Keep the rules of composition in mind when framing a scene. Lines, in particular, can be a strong factor in making an interesting landscape.
* Landscape photography is often more horizontal than it is vertical, presenting the opportunity to shoot a panorama. If you are faced with a wide vista and your camera has a panorama mode, this is the time to select it. Cropping afterwards can achieve a similar purpose.
* When the wind is blowing or water is moving - waves, waterfalls, a tumbling brook - capturing that movement by using a slow shutter speed to create blur can add great interest to a landscape. When selecting a slow shutter speed, be sure you retain proper exposure by also appropriately adjusting your camera's aperture.

Skogies Car Wash

Construction for Clean Living

SEPTEMBER 9, 2010 - Dave Skoglund has confidence in the future of car care in Kelowna, as he has invested over $1 Million in renovating Skogie's Car Wash and Gas Station on Harvey Ave.

His project will be featured in the next edition of Octane Magazine - a project I was hired to photograph this week.

The shoot provided a bit of a challenge to find an appropriate background for his portrait amid the construction.

Artistic Bear will guard new Kelowna park

SEPTEMBER 3, 2010 - Long anticipated, Jim Stuart Park was officially opened on the Kelowna Waterfront with the unveiling of an impressive sculpture of a Bear.

I photographed the official event for Stantec Consulting - a local company involved in the design and engineering of the project.

The event, the art and the park are all proving to be popular already.
