LANDSCAPES part 2

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.

* A foreground object will help to frame the scene and add a look of three-dimensionality.
* Frame the scene so that it contains a center of interest - an object that draws the viewer's eye into the picture.
* Placing the center of interest off-center, in accordance with the Rule of Thirds, will create a harmonious composition.
* Placing the horizon a third of the way down from the top or bottom of the frame is usually much better than having it in the middle of the scene.
* Scale can often be important to the understanding of a landscape, and can be achieved by including an object of a known size in the scene. People, animals or other recognizable objects that would naturally belong in the scene are suitable for showing scale.
* The quality of lighting is perhaps the most influential attribute of a successful landscape. Waiting for interesting lighting that is moody, dramatic or diffused usually pays off in a memorable photograph.
* Ensure that your camera's flash is turned off when shooting landscapes, unless you require it to brighten a foreground object. Flash in a dusty, misty or foggy scene may cause flare by reflecting off the droplets of moisture or dust particles.
* Use a tripod to ensure sharpness, especially in low-light conditions.
* Watch for unsightly or unnatural elements such as overhead wires, hydrants, poles and garbage cans, especially in the foreground. If you cannot easily move them, reposition yourself to a camera angle that eliminates them from the frame.

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.
