Week 2 Response Chris M.

Alberta is a great landscape to take photos. But you have to pay attention to the whole photo. You can use any camera, but it is good to have a digital camera so you can take as many photos as you’d like and erase the ones you don’t like. You can get great photos of mountains, whether it’s in the morning or the night. The focal point in your photo shouldn’t completely steal the spotlight. Like if you were taking one of a prairie, it would be hard to capture, unless you have the sky or the road to pull you eye from it. If you are taking a picture of a family, you should take it as they follow you. These are interesting tips on how to take photos. I agree that if you do put other things in a picture, it looks better by taking the focus off just the main object. I’m sure I’ll use these while taking photos.

The Pixetra chain of stores and Coffee Books are partnering together to hold a photography contest. Entry is open to everyone and completely free. The theme of the contest is ‘Food & Fun’. All you need to do is email your digital photos to the store. The top entries will be displayed and get prizes. I think this is an awesome idea and sounds like fun. I would love to participate in a photo contest because I think it would be fun to see what pictures I could get and how good they could be. This contest seems like a lot of fun and would be an interesting hobby to take up.
