You read that midday sun is the worst for photography, but I am a fan of the harsher shadows and interesting skies. Light is light after all. Learning to use it to best advantage is an important part of photography.

Museums are a gift to photographers:

  1. Sometimes they inadvertently do comedy (note first photograph entitled Sculpture in Box – its been boxed for shipment)
  2. They usually have amazing architecture
  3. You can learn lighting from the Old Masters, e.g. the Dutch Masters

These were taken in the National Gallery of Canada, a magnificent building. The first is done with a dutch tilt. Like the rule of thirds it is one of many standards taught in some photography schools and highly rated in some photography clubs. I believe there is a time and a place for these techniques but they are infrequent. The second photograph tries a textured layered approach to what is a gallery and staircase. Another approach I would use sparingly.

I posted these awhile ago in black and white. I have decided the colour is also worth putting on the blog. I used red and brown in the title but it could have been burnt sienna or rust or a hundred other obscure names in the red, brown and orange group of colours.  When someone tells me what colour something is I am always tempted to ask what shade. Have you seen how many colours there are in the Pantone catalogue… But in the photos it was the abstract nature of the bricks and colour that drew me to them.


Fall (Two Photographs)

These are some photos I took in the fall intending to do high contrast abstract work with them. But nature has one-upped me and I think these trees look great just the way they were. For the vast majority of my photography I try to stay as faithful to reality as I can.


Urban (Two Photographs)

My urban photography is not per se landscape photography, it’s what some photographers call intimate landscape photography. The idea is you single out and frame interesting elements of the urban environment, in the case of the doorway some soft focus helped show the transient nature of a blank wall in today’s cities.


Brick (Three Photographs)

I find patterns in brick interesting and I have shot a few series showing off some of these more intimate bits of the urban environment. In this case all three are in black and white ensuring the detail of the designs are front and centre. The colour versions will follow as they are part of the series, but they convey an entirely different story.
