One captivating image a day, the reason it was chosen and how you can shoot similar pictures.
Photo tip for Dec. 8: Shooting from a low angle into the sun as it's low in the sky helps the photographer create some great silhouettes in the warm light.
Photo tip for Dec. 7: By shooting with a slow shutter speed the cars lights leave trails across the bridge as they moved through the frame. Try shooting traffic at night with a slow shutter speed to see what kind of effects or trails they make as they move through your frame.
Photo tip for Dec. 6: Shooting from a low angle with a wide angle lens is a great way to photograph a group of runners. The legs of the runner on the left hand side lead the reader into the image and to the other runners.
Photo tip for Dec. 5: The timing is just right on the subject about to plunge into the icy waters. The early morning light is perfect for this scene. Allowing a loose frame around the subject, rather than zooming in, makes for a very interesting photograph.
Photo tip for Dec. 2: Terry Wurdemann of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., captured the wear and tear of this bench on a rainy Sunday in November. It was selected as the best submission on the theme of details. Why we chose it: Great colour and composition really made this image stand out from the rest. The detail in the paint peeling of the boards with the wet grass acting as a backdrop make the image pop.
