Moments: Caught on Camera, March 23 to March 29

A rower is seen during sunset on Lake Zurich on a mild and sunny spring day near Kuesnacht.


One captivating image a day, the reason it was chosen and how you can shoot similar pictures.

Photo tip for March 29: Shooting with the sun facing the camera makes for a creative photo and dramatic lighting. You would have to have the correct exposure to get the starburst of light from the sun and time it properly to have the ray of light highlight the rower in the lake.

Photo tip for March 28 : Shooting cherry blossoms or any other spring shot is a great excuse to get outdoors and capture some colourful images. Geting the runner in the middle of frame adds some energy to the photo.

Photo tip for March 27: The rain drops on the window the photographer is shooting through add another element to the image. Timing great too to get the lightning strike.

Photo tip for March 26: By getting up high and shooting down the photographer is able to get a clean background which helps the subject standout in the image. Try getting up high or down low to clean up the background.

Photo tip for March 23: With the Olympics on the horizon, Karen von Knobloch captured this photo of Canadian geese doing their version of a synchronized swim. It was selected as the best submission on the theme of wildlife photography. Why we chose it: Shooting wildlife is one of the most rewarding photographic experiences. You never know what they're going to do. You can't direct them. You just have to be patient and think fast when the shot presents itself. This photo is an unexpected one. Getting both geese in a synchronized swimming pose was just terrific in the timing and execution. Shooting loose gets the reflection in the water. There were a lot of great submissions this week.

Each weekday, our photo editors will select one compelling image for prominent play in the newspaper. On Friday, we'll publish in the newspaper our favourite reader photo from a weekly assignment. This week's assignment: Repeating patterns
