Canon’s Photo Farewell to Summer
I am one of those people that is passionate about summer. I love the sand, the sound of the ocean, tanned skin, salty hair. I love all of it. Now, don’t get me wrong – fall has it perks. However, I can sense the looming coldness of winter just weeks away.
So, when Canon cameras invited me to a photo farewell – of course I said yes.
It was a great event. We went to a rooftop downtown called Loopy Doopy and we sipped on cocktails and played with some Canon cameras. One of the canon experts taught us a ton of tips on how to capture the perfect sunset photo.
Here are the tips that helped me:
1) Auto White Balance (AWB) – By changing to the Cloudy or Shade setting before shooting an image, you adjust the camera to take advantage of the different warm tones it can render
2) Exposure Compensation – By utilizing Exposure Compensation before shooting an image, it allows more or less light in, resulting in brighter or darker images that can change the mood of the same scene
3) Rule of Thirds – The Rule of Thirds advocates that the subject or major part of the image should not be placed in the center of the photograph, so that the eye has more room to explore
I personally own the Rebel SL1 and use it for all my projects and love how light the camera is. So it was fun to try out different lenses and learn more about photography.
Here are a few of my shots from the night:
