2024-05-07 Use a Frame

Shoot through something, or try to use foreground framing techniques. I thought Tony’s image taken at the SAIT campus was a great example. The objective is to think about subtle foreground as well as subject. The foreground frame does not have to be something static. For example it could be two people on either side of the frame while something interesting is going on in the centre. Or dark shadows framing an interesting object lit by a light source.

    Framing the Northern Lights around midnight May 10 – 11. Looking up between our backyard arbour and the garage I thought this gives a good sense of the scale of the phonomenon. 10 sec, f/13, ISO 3200. Taken with a 24 mm lens. The arbour was lit by a backlane light. Histogram adjusted, Vibrance and Denoise added.

    I was at Elliston Pond the other day and walked east to the wetlands. There I saw this Yellow-headed Blackbird sitting between two cattails. However, the right cattail was too far away to make a nice border. So I used InfranView64 to take out some of the space between the bird and the right cattail to make a more symmetrical border. Settings: F9, S1/1000, ISO 1000, Auto WB, CW Metering.

    Diana and I wer in the south of France in early May for a family vacation. On the trip we stayed in Cannes and visited Monaco and Grasse. Our walk about Monte Carlo on May 6th saw us end up in the famous courtyard in from of the iconic Casio of Monte Carlo on an overcast afternoon. There is a wonderful golden ball in the courtyard and I captured this image which shows the Casion (and people) in reflection.

    My second submission is from the beautiful town of Grasse — La Parfumerie capital of world. In Grasse we toured the Fragonard Parfumerie which was featuring a Lilac Festival of offerings. The adjacent area (under Fragonard control) was festooned with pink umbrellas strung above the street. I captured this “in the frame of a narrow street” image showing the umbrellas and reflection on the street.

    A bit difficult to use the camera this week with my cataract surgery and windy conditions. I was trying to frame Piper Creek with the flood abatement rocks and the new bridge being built. I would like to try this again with my camera, from a different angle. Taken with my cell phone.
