Product Review: Oowa Lenses

Mobile photography has become so popular within the last few years thanks to the advances in the technology mobile devices use. With iPhones spitting out billboard-worthy photos, there seems to be an ever-growing trend to see which mobile device can capture the best image. Using just the device, however, may have its limitations—and that’s where […]

Product Review: Sleeklens Workflow

One of the best things about post-processing may also be the worst thing about it. We have so many choices these days—which is great—but if you don’t know what you’re looking for, you can easily get overwhelmed by the plethora of choices you have in front of you.

 Making lemonade. When I came here well before sunrise, I was surprised to see these two people already here—they were chatting amongst themselves waiting for the sun. But rather than thinking they would ruin my photos for being there, I decided to use them as an extra element of interest in my photos. I positioned the two of them in various ways as they moved around. At one point the two separated and stood still as they watched the sun rise above the horizon. I was far enough back that I could easily position myself so that I could see the sun between the two of them. A perfect example of turning lemons into lemonade. .

 Scratching the sky. A 2.5 sec. long exposure by the marina catches this flying object. An airplane usually has breaks within the lights as hey flash. This solid line of light means the light was a constant source.

This warm weather is great for us, but not so great for the fall colours. I doubt we will see any vibrant colours this year as the leaves have started falling already. . Which would you rather have?
