Lighthouse At Sunset -- Brooks Alberta Landscape Photographer

This was shot last night. I set my white balance on my camera to "shade" so the colours in the sky would be more saturated and warmer. if I had left it at "full sun" the image would have come out a lot more blue. I also used a graduated filter to bring the exposure of the sky down so it would match the reflection (reflections in water tend to be darker then what they are reflecting). After I brought the image home I cropped the image and sharpened it just a little bit.

I love Landscapes -- Brooks Alberta Landscape Photographer

There is something about shooting landscapes that is so therapeutic. Maybe it’s the fact that I’m often alone and am left to reflect and ponder while waiting for the right light. It might be that I am witnessing the unfolding of another beautiful day or the close of one more that I have been able to be alive and spend with those I love.

Take me out to the ball game -- Brooks Alberta Sports Photographer

PPOC open shoot -- Brooks Alberta Photographer

I had the opportunity A few days ago to get together with some photographers from Lethbridge and the Brooks area. A few models also made the trip from Lethbridge and brought some clothes made by some designers in the "Bridge City".

The venue for the event was provided by Canal Hill Studio (which by the way has an awesome outdoor studio.) There was a short demonstration by Cody Belter on a few lighting set ups and then we got shooting.

It was great to network a bit and work with some great models.

The other photographers that were in attendance were:
Grant Forsythe , Samantha Postman , Rachel Boekel and Maros Hana . you should take a look at their work.
