Because squirrel!!


Also, a little interval of B&W in all the supersaturated nature colours lately.

Photo tip: when taking a picture of any critter, biped or otherwise, try to make sure there’s a little light showing in the eye. Eyes with light have sparkle and life; eyes without light appear dead. Also, if you get nothing else in focus, make sure you have clean focus on the eye. One of the first things the human eye seeks out in a photo is other eyes.

  4. Photo of the day: Apple box (before and after) When it comes to editing portraits, I tend to prefer a “clean edit” – tweaks for contrast, exposure, and vibrance (I love saturated colours!), but not too much more. Well, I also have a hopeless addiction to vignettes. But sometimes I see something that just cries out for a more...
  5. Photo of the day: Lucas on the porch One of my favourite models, helping me practice my on-camera fill flash techniques on the porch today. I have been swearing for years that I would learn off-camera flash. I have taken at least two workshops, read many books and countless blog posts. I’ve bought umbrellas, gels, softboxes, and modifiers,...
