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.

Portraits of Kelowna women

April has proven to be a month of contrasts – with portrait requests from two ends of the spectrum in society.
It seemed almost like a Tale of Two Cities within this growing Okanagan municipality.

Canadian Press requested images of Suzanne Basson (above) and her employees at one Kelowna bank for a corporate newsletter, and bank needed a portrait of manager Holly LaMonica for a in-house poster. By contrast, The Vancouver Province wanted photos of a former street kid who turned her life around.

Revolutionary Resolution

My clients may be able to benefit from a new camera I purchased in April which features a somewhat revolutionary leap in resolution. It boasts the highest detail available in a 35mm SLR style camera.

The new Nikon D800 boasts 36 megapixels of resolution — more than doubling my previous camera. While that number is impressive, what I'm most excited about is the camera's expanded dynamic range — offering the capability to provide more detail into both the highlights and the shadows.
