Amazing Colours!

If I have the time, one of my favourite things to do on a Monday afternoon is spend some time in my kitchen chopping up good food to have as easy-grab snacks throughout the week.  Today's treats were so colourful, I couldn't resist photographing them to show you what proper colour can do for your images - make them pop!

If you find colour is just "off" in your photographs, we can help you figure out why in our intermediate course, Step It Up, Shutterbug! being offered this Wednesday, May 30th in the Richard John Meeting Room at Lorne's Electric, starting at 7 pm, and again on Monday, June 25th, same place, same time.  To register for either of these courses, send us an email here.   In Step It Up, Shutterbug, we teach you how to get proper colour in your photos and use colour effectively when composing your images.  We also teach how to adjust shutter speed and aperture, and why, as well as metering modes, and more.

There is no pre-requisite to this course.  If you feel you are ready for intermediate photography, then this is for you!  Also, if you took Mastering the Basics, Part 2, in the past, you can come back for a refresher and qualify for our alumni rate for this course.  This is a great deal seeing as we have added more topics!

My two oldest kids better hurry home from school, because Little Miss got her hands on the fruit and is making a good dent in the bowl!

What do you think I should do with this beautiful rhubarb that my mom passed my way?  Make strawberry-rhubarb crisp for dessert, of course!  But first, I'm heading back outside to enjoy this beautiful day.

Have a happy Monday!

Capture The Moment With Manual Mode

"Flowers" picked for Mommy last a little while.  An image lasts forever.  How do you want your forever-memories to look?

These two images were taken moments apart with a beautiful camera.  Your camera is a fantastic tool that can help you take pictures, but the important part of this equation is you and your knowledge and skill.  Do you own a dSLR and still struggle with proper exposure, focus, and colour?  Learn how to take control of your settings on that camera and shoot in full Manual Mode with our course The Magic of Manual Mode, Sunday, May 6 at noon, just outside of Arnprior, Ontario.  Contact us today by email at clicksgonewild@gmail.com for last-minute registration.
