Indy Photo Coach 9:31pm, 27 May 2009

The warm weather has finally arrived! Time for planning vacations, camps, parties and outdoor activities for the upcoming months. But more importantly, realize some of the different photography scenarios you'll face with bright sunlight and hazy skies.

Enjoy this season!

1) A polarizing filter will help cut down bright reflections, hazy skies and make the colors of the sky & foliage deeper. Click Here for Example

2) The bright mid-day light can "fool" your camera's exposure
calculation. If your shot is too dark or light, experiment with the
"Exposure Compensation" tool.

3) For non-candid shots, have your subjects close their eyes for a
few seconds, then open them right before you open the shutter.
This will reduce the risk of squinting or blinking during the shot.

4) Camera health tip: your camera can handle the normal heat of
outdoors, but NOT being locked inside a car. Normal Indiana
summer temperatures are elevated to 131F - 172F inside of cars.
Take it with you or keep it cool!

Summer to me is time spent in the pool and at the beach, This first shot was taken in Bonita Springs, Florida a day or so ago. It's of my daughter swimming in the pool. The 2nd shot was taken at the Naples Pier last week in Naples, Florida.
POOL FUN (Florida)

Water Fun 1

Last day of summer before school started, the families on our Court had a get-together and Miles had a lot of fun with the hose. What's more 'summer' than a swimming pool, cook-out, and kickball? Lots of fun and great memories!
