If you are a fan of Edward Burtynsky‘s beautiful large format images be sure to see Anthropocene at the National Gallery Of Canada before it closes February 24, 2019. The show includes over 30 large prints and several photo murals. It also features film installations by Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier.
Admission to the gallery is free on Thursday evenings from 5 to 8 pm.
The show catalogue, published by the Art Gallery of Ontario, can be borrowed from the Ottawa Public Library. There is also a Studio book ANTHROPOCENE, featuring reproductions of photographs by Edward Burtynsky which will be released later this month.
which I submitted to the September “Breakin All the Rules” challenge and was shown at the October 5th meeting.
Here are the instructions that will get someone started in panning trees (or other vertical subjects). The head movement is the key. As you can see white birch trees make a nice image however I have done dark trunks against a blue sky and it was awesome.
TV Mode with shutter speed 1/20 -1/30
Adjust tone by overexposing by 1+
If shooting in MANUAL MODE then set your speed then aperture according to meter
The above settings are a starting point. You may have to make adjustments to suit the lighting. Now the technique to shoot !!
Compose your shot then, while camera is still next to your eye, START moving your head up and down. Using a count of 10 this is how it goes:
Compose……Move your head up and down 1-2-3-4-Press shutter button—6-7-8-9-10.
Do not stop head movement to click the camera on 5 . It is a nodding head movement all the way through the count of 10.
The featured speaker at our meeting on November 2nd will be Sandy Sharkey.
Sandy is a former Ottawa radio announcer who is now pursuing her favourite passion: photographing wild horses. She has photographed horses in Mongolia, Costa Rica, and France. In 2018 Sandy embarked on a 67 day road trip to capture images of wild mustangs in the American southwest. She is immensely proud of our Canadian wild horses, having visited Sable Island five times to photograph the iconic horses off the coast of Nova Scotia. In conjunction with Help Alberta Wildies, Sandy documented the magnificent horses living wild and free in Alberta’s Rocky Mountain foothills.
Sandy’s limited edition prints of wild horses can be found in homes and businesses throughout North America, and can be custom ordered at her website. You can also follow Sandy on social media at Facebook, Twitter (@sandysharkey), and Instagram (sandysharkeyphotography).
