    10 New Year’s Resolutions to Make You a Better Photographer

    Did you receive a new camera for Christmas? If so, you're likely excited about taking some great photos. In reality, these images will only be as good as the photography skills of the person who presses the shutter release. The new year presents opportunities for self-improvement and self-reflection. Photographers, like all artists, should consider their goals for the year ahead. Perhaps you want to consider relying less on auto modes. For enthusiasts, building your skills in off-camera lighting would be a valuable endeavour. If you're a seasoned professional, maybe it's time to further develop your business.

    Calendars

    Calendars

    Most photographers produce calendars at some time during their careers, whether they be for family, clients or perhaps with specific subjects to be sold commercially. Over the years, I have produced several. Some have been personal, just for family members; others I have used for distribution to clients and potential clients to promote my business; others have been produced specifically for clients.

    Why Have So Many Missed Opportunities?

    Why Have So Many Missed Opportunities?

    I am in a fortunate position to be semi-retired, and to live in a city (Edmonton, Alberta) where there are so many great opportunities for getting great shots. It was not much more than a couple of years ago that I got serious about photography, and I thought my interest was going to die on the vine with the purchase of a DSLR. It just didn't seem that there were enough types of photos and angles and new places to take pictures of. Even the wildlife seemed boring, but in the years since, I have completely changed my mind. Edmonton is a rapidly growing city, and there are constantly new buildings and bridges and other major construction projects going on. This for me has been a great opportunity because I can take a photo of the shell of a building and then go back a few short weeks later and track the building's progress towards reaching for the sky. I have developed a fascination with our new "Stantec Tower" which is now our tallest building, and in fact now the tallest building West of Toronto. One day I will visit the observation deck of this building, but at the moment I am happy to frame the great behemoth and its sister tower with other fantastic buildings in Edmonton, such as our Legislature building and grounds. One of the amazing things about this building is how it is teaching me perspective, because when you are close to it the building seems roughly higher than the many towers around it, but when you venture out a little the building seems twice as high as any other tower.

    Through My Eyes

    Through My Eyes

    I started with street photography the moment I picked up the camera, actually I borrowed the camera from my friend Maja. It was some kind of Sony DSLR I remember, did the job. I was so excited, and the first thing that I shot was the people on the street. That was it.
