Composition - Part 3
Rules vs. Guidelines

Many of the so-called rules of composition should be considered as guidelines. They are based on recreating similarities in the make-up of many different images that many people have found to be esthetically-pleasing. These rules of composition or a design need not be taken as a hard and fast rule that must be observed.

Some renowned photographs violate all the rules of composition and are still excellent pictures. This doesn't mean that the rules are without value. They are time-proven, and provide great guidelines for photographers at any level. We use them all the time.

FOLLOW THE RULES UNTIL YOU KNOW WHEN TO BREAK THEM

By religiously observing the principles of composition, they will become firmly cemented in your mind. Employing them will become second nature to you.

Once you have the rules of composition down pat, experiment and break a rule here or there when you feel the image will work better without it. Thatís called individual style, and the creativity that stems from it produces some great images.

The point is that you will know when to break a rule of composition once you know what the rules are and how they work.

Homes
for the
Summer

AUGUST 3, 2013 - This summer has been beautiful throughout the Okanagan.

While the scintillating scenery has been enjoyed by many in the great outdoors, my Nikon D800 has also been busy capturing some exquisite beauty inside some fine Kelowna homes.

Architectural Photography in KelownaWith massive picture windows, residents can enjoy the sublime scenery from the comfort of their own living rooms or kitchens.

Tis the season for architectural photography to peak as new home projects come to a climax and many fine local builders prepare their entries for the annual Canadian Home Builders Association awards.

I'm looking forward to capturing more new building innovations that will garner trophies in the Tommies, the Georgies and perhaps even the SAM awards for 2013.

Shining at SunRype

The juice will soon be flowing again at Kelowna's SunRype plant.

With many of the Okanagan orchards enjoying bumper crops under the hot sunshine, the world renowned SunRype operation is preparing for the upcoming harvest.

From old favourites like apple juice to the newer chewy fruit bars and snacks, Okanagan flavours continue to tantilize taste buds across dozens of countries around the globe.
