Camera Awesome is Awesome

I'm in Seattle for my Canon Explorer of Light presentation tomorrow for Glazers Camera.

I'm also doing a photo walk later today with my several local photographers and my friends from Galzers Camera. On the walk, I will be using my favorite lens: Canon 24-105mm IS lens. My camera: new Canon 5D Mark III.

Tune in Monday for 5 days of 5D Mark III shots.

I took this shot this morning during my personal photo walk. I awesomized it using SmugMug's cool app, Camera Awesome. Then I used Shadows/Highlights in Photoshop CS6 to fine-tune the image.

When I shoot, I look for creative composition. As Edward Weston said: Composition is the strongest way of seeing.

Quick composition tips:
- Name of the game, fill the frame.
- Try to create a balance in your photograph.
- Compose with depth-of-field in mind.
- Envision the end result.
- Always look up, down and back.
