Friends Of West Side Animal League: Photo Essay

The Photographer. Get to know your photographer. You need to RELAX with the photographer, as he will no doubt pose you two in any number of ways. He has done this many times before and is natural to him. It’s probably your first time and will seem very strange. By getting to know him or her you will relax and get images that look right.

Decide on the type of depth, dimensions and details you want in your photo. Side lights give larger dimensions. Direct light hitting from front points out texture and depth. Lights from the rear help in reducing details. Place the lights according to your desire.

An understanding of the source of light is important because different sources have to be shot differently and with different settings. Ask yourself where the light is coming from. Is it coming from a primary light source such as the sun or an artificial flash? Is the light coming from a reflected source such as off a wall or a reflector?

Very important question to answer. If there is any competition from other potential subjects of focal points then you need to know how to deal with them and where to place them. You cannot have the subject competing for attention in an image. This causes the eye of the viewer to wander in confusion between the two points. If they are competing or even causing a distraction they need to go or you have to find a way a minimising the distraction. Bottom line is that there is no room for two prima donnas on the stage.

Mario Kart Wii – The Mario Kart racing game series is the best in my opinion. There has been a version for every Nintendo console since the super Nintendo, so it has been expected for a while. This version brings back some classic tracks and introduces some new ones. The gameplay is more interesting in that you can use the Wii Wheel to play. You can also use a Gamecube controller to have a more classic control feel.

Try placing a frame around your shots. Try receiving an unique frame constructed from natural frames inside the shot. This may enhance your photographic composition.

How to decide on the best placement of subjects in your photos, emulating the masters of photography. You will wonder why you never saw this before yourself!

Just you two and the photographer The photographer will want to take the Bride & Groom away from the guests for a while to shoot some photographs. This is quite normal. Make sure no one else comes along, NO CHILDREN, no guests, on one. Any other people will get in the way. These photographs cannot be easily retaken therefore you need to get the best first time round.
