The Art of Lighting


While I was photographing at George Lake in Killarney Provincial Park last Wednesday, I was observing the lighting that was happening on the far shore

The sunrise was to the right of me. Thus creating some wonderful lighting on the evergreens on a small point. If you look around the photo you will see some snatches of lighting on other trees. This is like a painter’s brush stroke with a dab of yellow here and there. This is created by the sunlight beaming through openings in the trees opposite to this composition. I kept the composition as tight as possible. The rocky shoreline adds depth and contrast. The lake surface is not totally calm. But that is okay. It gives the composition a more painterly effect that I so love. There is also a lovely mood here of soft lighting, peacefulness and tranquility.

I had a great day the Saturday past. The Rubber Boot Festival in Noelville was excellent with great music. It is always wonderful to talk to the public and meet other artists from the area. My work will now be hanging at the Backstreet Gallery in Noelville.

Well that is it for now. Thank you all for stopping by and for the comments. Until next time happy trails.
