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.

Open up and     Say Awesome

OCTOBER, 2011 - A lot of growth in business has come to West Kelowna, or Westbank, B.C. as it's been known to Okanagan residents for many years.
Proliferation of new shopping centres have been most noticeable - while various professional services like Dental Offices have also added to the dyanamic of the burgeoning community.
A few weeks ago, I enjoyed photographing a new office for Aura Dental for Sinclair Dental Company.

Artistic home up for Tommy Award

OCTOBER, 2011 - Some images are worth getting up at 5 am for. Twilight and sunrise provide beautiful light that suits some of the artistic creations by the Okanagan's finest home builders.
It took a very early morning to capture this handsome exterior image in Carrs Landing for one Kelowna builder. For now, I'll hold back on names, since there's a few potential housing awards on the line.

Sunny seat

The natural beauty of Okanagan Lake provides a ideal location for relaxation on an outdoor deck in the sunshine.
Carol Dodge recognized this when she set up SunCountry Furniture in Kelowna.
Doing my best to match the surroundings, I photographed another collection of the furniture she finds around the world to bring to our decks.
Composing such images is not too difficult, but it sure takes a lot of electronic flash power to match the sun's strength.
