Photography after Dark

Night time can be the right time for some very interesting photographs - with the right technique and tools.

A tripod is essential for steady images, as shutter speeds have to be extended considerably. The general rule of steadiness calls for a shutter speed of a fraction of a second divided by the lens focal length. For example, with a 200mm lens, the slowest shutter speed you should use would be 1/200 th of a second.

Night time shots of West Kelowna forest fire (as seen on the right) called for exposures of 10 to 30 seconds. Given the high winds of the night, an extra weight hanging on the tripod is helpful to provide greater stability.

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.
