Composition - Part 2 - Origins

Years ago, artists who had been born with an innate sense of design created works that were perceived, by other skilled artists, as having good composition. Not only that, but their works were very popular with the general public and art afficionados.

Analysis of such works showed patterns and trends in the organization and inter-relationships of lines, shapes, forms and colors that were recognized as contributing to the effectiveness of the works. It was found that others could employ these patterns as techniques in improving their own works. When they were defined, they became known as the rules of composition.

1. Place your main element away from distracting backgrounds like tree branches or bright colours.

2. If a person is looking or moving sideways, leave room on that side of the image to allow for their gaze or movement.

3. Rule of Thirds: for more dynamic feel, place the most important element at one of the intersections of the "thirds" (one third distance from the top (or bottom), one third distance from the side)

4. On landscape images; move the horizon line from the center to add more impact to either the ground or the sky.

5. Add depth to an image with elements in foreground, middle ground and background.

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.
