Don't forget to overexpose your
snow shots. The meter thinks
the world is gray so will close down
the aperture too much or choose
a shutter speed that is too fast.

compensation button and dial in
+1 for a brighter shot. Who wants

More classes in basic digital photography start
in January and again in February and March
at several community centres in Vancouver.

How to use a wide angle lens:
Get very close to something so you have
a large foreground subject. Use a small
aperture like f16 to make sure everything
is in focus from near to far.

I like to find a nice S curve. It creates
a graceful line that leads the eye into
the picture and gives it depth. This
shot was from the Cambie Bridge with
a short telephoto lens, which compresses
the space and eliminates distracting elements.
The image was marketed in the USA for
publishing by AGE Fotostock, Barcelona.
