Landscape Photography Show12,452*Landscape Photography Show #45: Vertical Rule of Thirds* In the last event, we explored how to set a horizon using the horizontal rule of thirds.  We're continuing with this strong rule of composition by looking at the Vertical Rule of Thirds.  This event will be starting later today so you have a chance to carefully read all the rules. Some landscape photographs really appeal to us and others seem boring. Do you know why?  Your brain is being stimulated by composition, color, and contrast and it's all subconscious.  Your photos can be more interesting and appealing by knowing rules of composition and when to break those rules. Remember in the last event that you imagined two horizontal lines in your viewfinder that divided the space into three equal spaces.  Now, also imagine two vertical lines that also divide the view into thirds.  You now have a grid much like the tic-tac-toe game.  The four points where the lines intersect are called focal points.  We will have more about them later.  For now, we will focus on the vertical lines.  Does your landscape have a strong vertical element that you want to capture?  Let's say it's a single tree.  We often like to put that tree smack dab in the center of the photo.  We may capture the tree but the photograph is boring.  Try putting that tree along one of the vertical lines separating the space into thirds.  Now the photograph has some drama and added interest.   That's what we want practice with this event.  Use one of your vertical lines to capture a strong vertical element.  Don't forget the Horizontal Rule of Thirds and Horizon that we had in the last event.  We want both rules of composition used in this event!! Knowing when to break the rules is important too but make sure you have a good reason to break the basic rules of composition.    *1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a strong vertical element using the Vertical Rule of Thirds.  Keep in mind the horizon from the last event.*   *2.  In a comment on the photograph explain how you used this technique in your composition.  If you break the Vertical Rules of Thirds, tell us what you are trying to achieve.*   *3.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well.* *4.  This event is all about PARTICIPATION and DISCUSSION.  Please don't post a photo and leave.  The LPS reserves the right to remove photos without your comment.*    *General Rules:* 1) Your photo MUST be ORIGINAL.  If you post the work of someone else, you will be removed from the event. 2) You MUST have complete EXIF data for your photo.  Within the event, select your photo and view it large.  Look for the "photo details" on the right.  It should be complete with the date the photo was taken, camera and lens information, ISO, f stop, speed etc.  Photos that don't have complete EXIF data will be removed.  Others will learn from seeing what you have done. 3) OnlyLPS Event #45: Vertical Rule Of Thirds2015-06-22 19:00:00420

Landscape Photography Show12,452*Landscape Photography Show #44: Horizon - Rules-of-Thirds* Some landscape photographs really appeal to us and others seem boring. Do you know why?  Your brain is being stimulated by composition, color, and contrast and it's all subconscious.  Your photos can be more interesting and appealing by knowing rules of composition and when to break those rules. Imagine two horizontal lines in your viewfinder that divides the space into three equal spaces.  Also imagine two vertical lines that also divide the view into thirds.  You now have a grid much like the tic-tac-toe game.  The four points where the lines intersect are called focal points.  We will have more about them later and also the vertical lines.  This event will focus on those horizontal lines. Study your landscape BEFORE you shoot.  In the viewfinder, place the horizon on one of those horizontal rule-of-thirds lines.  You will have 1/3 sky and 2/3 ground or 2/3 sky and 1/3 ground.  That composition is very pleasing to the viewer.  Having your horizon dead center is often boring and not interesting.   Horizons should be level!!  If you have sky and water, then having the horizon level is a MUST!!   If you have sky and ground, the "level" becomes more complicated.  If your horizon is very curvy with rolling hills for example, you won't have a level horizon and that's OK.  Your mind's eye knows that hills aren't level.  If your horizon is the boundary between sky and land and only a slight hill, you're mind's eye won't find it appealing when looking at the photograph of that view because the horizon isn't level.   You can trick your mind's eye by adding a vertical element to the composition that the viewer will "know" is vertical such as a tree.  You might put that vertical tree on one of those vertical rule-of-thirds lines.  Your mind knows that the tree is vertical and won't mind an unlevel horizon. Knowing when to break the rules is important too but make sure you have a good reason to break the basic rules of composition.  You might try getting added drama with 10-20% sky and 80-90% ground or vice versa.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a horizon using the horizontal rule-of-thirds.  In a comment on the photograph explain how you used this technique in your composition.  If you break the horizontal rule-of-thirds, tell us what you are trying to achieve.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well.  Feel free to leave comments and discuss on the main event as well. *General Rules:* 1) Your photo MUST be ORIGINAL.  If you post the work of someone else, you will be removed from the event. 2) *You MUST have complete EXIF data for your photo.  Within the event, select your photo and view it large.  Look for the "photo details" on the right.  It should be complete with the date the photo was taken, camera and lens information, ISO, f stop, speed etc.  Photos that don'tLPS Event #44: Horizon - Rule of Thirds2015-06-08 17:00:00589

Landscape Photography Show12,452*Landscape Photography Show #43: The "S" Curve* Curving lines are a fundamental aspect of landscape photography.  They will move the viewer's eye throughout the photograph.  When used in conjunction with light along the curve, the composition is even stronger.

Landscape Photography Show #46: Power Points

In the last two events, we explored the horizontal and vertical rule of thirds lines and how they divide your frame into 9 equal parts.  It's always great to set a horizon on the lower or upper horizontal line.  It's also good to place a strong element along one of the vertical rule of thirds lines.

This event will focus on where the two vertical and horizontal rule of thirds lines intersect.  We call those Power Points.  There are 4 of them: upper left, upper right, lower left, and lower right.

Placing a strong element at one of the Power Points can really improve the composition, drama, and power of your photograph.  Examples:  the single red leaf on a green tree; the eye of anything wildlife, and the setting sun on the horizon. 
 
Some landscape photographs really appeal to us and others seem boring. Do you know why?  Your brain is being stimulated by composition, color, and contrast and it's all subconscious.  Your photos can be more interesting and appealing by knowing rules of composition and when to break those rules.

Power Points are what we want practice with this event.  Show us something special place at one of the intersection points of those vertical and horizontal lines.  

1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays something special at one of the Power Points.      
2.  In a comment on the photograph tell us which Power Point you used: upper left, upper right, lower left, or lower right.  Explain how you used this technique in your composition.  If you break the Power Point rules, tell us why.  Also give us some information about the location and any challenges that you faced.  We want to know the details about your photograph.
3.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well.
4.  This event is all about PARTICIPATION and DISCUSSION.  Please don't post a photo and leave.  The LPS reserves the right to remove photos without your comment.   

General Rules:
1) Your photo MUST be ORIGINAL.  If you post the work of someone else, you will be removed from the event.
2) You MUST have complete EXIF data for your photo.  Within the event, select your photo and view it large.  Look for the "photo details" on the right.  It should be complete with the date the photo was taken, camera and lens information, ISO, f stop, speed etc.  Photos that don't have complete EXIF data will be removed.  Others will learn from seeing what you have done.
3) Only ONE photograph per person is allowed.  If you submit more than one photo, all of your photos will be removed.
4) Circle the +Landscape Photography Show page.
5) Photos must be posted no later than Monday, July 13, 2015, 10 am CDT.  Those posted after that time will be removed.
6) Curator favorites will be shared to the +Landscape Photography theme page.  Circle the curators and engage them in conversation.  You will learn lots from them!!
7) Curators of the +Landscape Photography Show and the +Landscape Photography theme may participate.
8) Technical Requirements: Enable "sharing" on your photo.  If it receives honors, we want to be able to share it!!  Enable "comments" on your photo.  We want to say how great it is!!  Enable "plus ones" so everyone can give it a big plus!!___Come join the fun!!  Share and Enjoy!!!!

SPECIAL FEATURED CATS - Vixen and Rosemary - Check out the video!!!   Please Share!!!

From Jane Weatherford, Brown County Humane Society, Nashville, IN

Last week, you helped us get the word out about Tyler and, after 2.5 years at the shelter, he finally got his forever home. We’re asking for your extra help again.

Vixen and Rosemary are two fabulous cats that need to find homes now. They are both the exact type of cat that people always ask for: lap cat, playful, sweet, good with dogs, good with all people. Not to mention, beautiful! So what’s the rush?

Both cats have Feline Leukemia virus (FeLV). Neither cat has shown any signs of illness, but FeLV gives them weaker immune systems. One key to managing the disease is keeping their lives stress-free.

SPECIAL FEATURED CATS - Vixen and Rosemary - Check out the video!!!   Please Share!!!

From Jane Weatherford, Brown County Humane Society, Nashville, IN

Last week, you helped us get the word out about Tyler and, after 2.5 years at the shelter, he finally got his forever home. We’re asking for your extra help again.

Vixen and Rosemary are two fabulous cats that need to find homes now. They are both the exact type of cat that people always ask for: lap cat, playful, sweet, good with dogs, good with all people. Not to mention, beautiful! So what’s the rush?

Both cats have Feline Leukemia virus (FeLV). Neither cat has shown any signs of illness, but FeLV gives them weaker immune systems. One key to managing the disease is keeping their lives stress-free.

Vixen and Rosemary are in a foster home. We now have the opportunity to send both cats to live at the sanctuary at Best Friends in Utah. They’ll be well taken care of there. But a 1600 mile trip will be very stressful for them. More importantly, we believe that there is NO reason these wonderful cats should spend their lives at a sanctuary, instead of knowing what it’s like to live in their own homes, giving love and comfort and being part of a family.

Vixen is a total lap cat! She loves to snuggle and she loves to supervise all activity. She especially loves people. When guests come over to the foster home, she’ll be the first to greet them. Vixen is also an avid bird watcher and she loves dogs!

Rosemary is curiosity plus. Birds and squirrels can keep her entertained for hours. But what she really likes is having people play interactive toys with her. She’s quite athletic and super. When she’s played out and ready for a nap, Rosemary seeks out people to curl up with. Rosemary is quite comfortable with dogs.

Vixen and Rosemary do not have to be adopted together. Although they enjoy playing together, they are not dependent on each other.

We are grateful that we have an opportunity to send them to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah, but it would be much better to find them a home closer to here. Their time is limited. You can help. Please forward this everyone you know and ask them to send it to their friends.

Since Vixen and Rosemary are in foster, if someone wants to meet them, an appointment will need to be made. Complete an application at: http://www.bchumane.org/adoption-application/ or call the shelter at 812-988-7362.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about these special girls, and for helping to spread the word. Rosemary & Vixen appreciate it!

See how adorable these two are in their latest video:

Landscape Photography Show #45: Vertical Rule of Thirds

In the last event, we explored how to set a horizon using the horizontal rule of thirds.  We're continuing with this strong rule of composition by looking at the Vertical Rule of Thirds.  This event will be starting later today so you have a chance to carefully read all the rules.

Some landscape photographs really appeal to us and others seem boring. Do you know why?  Your brain is being stimulated by composition, color, and contrast and it's all subconscious.  Your photos can be more interesting and appealing by knowing rules of composition and when to break those rules.

Remember in the last event that you imagined two horizontal lines in your viewfinder that divided the space into three equal spaces.  Now, also imagine two vertical lines that also divide the view into thirds.  You now have a grid much like the tic-tac-toe game.  The four points where the lines intersect are called focal points.  We will have more about them later.  For now, we will focus on the vertical lines. 

Does your landscape have a strong vertical element that you want to capture?  Let's say it's a single tree.  We often like to put that tree smack dab in the center of the photo.  We may capture the tree but the photograph is boring.  Try putting that tree along one of the vertical lines separating the space into thirds.  Now the photograph has some drama and added interest.  

That's what we want practice with this event.  Use one of your vertical lines to capture a strong vertical element.  Don't forget the Horizontal Rule of Thirds and Horizon that we had in the last event.  We want both rules of composition used in this event!!

Knowing when to break the rules is important too but make sure you have a good reason to break the basic rules of composition.   

1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a strong vertical element using the Vertical Rule of Thirds.  Keep in mind the horizon from the last event.  
2.  In a comment on the photograph explain how you used this technique in your composition.  If you break the Vertical Rules of Thirds, tell us what you are trying to achieve.  
3.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well.
4.  This event is all about PARTICIPATION and DISCUSSION.  Please don't post a photo and leave.  The LPS reserves the right to remove photos without your comment.   

General Rules:
1) Your photo MUST be ORIGINAL.  If you post the work of someone else, you will be removed from the event.
2) You MUST have complete EXIF data for your photo.  Within the event, select your photo and view it large.  Look for the "photo details" on the right.  It should be complete with the date the photo was taken, camera and lens information, ISO, f stop, speed etc.  Photos that don't have complete EXIF data will be removed.  Others will learn from seeing what you have done.
3) Only ONE photograph per person is allowed.  If you submit more than one photo, all of your photos will be removed.
4) Circle the +Landscape Photography Show page.
5) Photos must be posted no later than Monday, June 29, 2015, 10 am CDT.  Those posted after that time will be removed.

Come show us those great horizons!!

Landscape Photography Show #44: Horizon - Rules-of-Thirds

Some landscape photographs really appeal to us and others seem boring. Do you know why?  Your brain is being stimulated by composition, color, and contrast and it's all subconscious.  Your photos can be more interesting and appealing by knowing rules of composition and when to break those rules.

Imagine two horizontal lines in your viewfinder that divides the space into three equal spaces.  Also imagine two vertical lines that also divide the view into thirds.  You now have a grid much like the tic-tac-toe game.  The four points where the lines intersect are called focal points.  We will have more about them later and also the vertical lines.  This event will focus on those horizontal lines.

Study your landscape BEFORE you shoot.  In the viewfinder, place the horizon on one of those horizontal rule-of-thirds lines.  You will have 1/3 sky and 2/3 ground or 2/3 sky and 1/3 ground.  That composition is very pleasing to the viewer.  Having your horizon dead center is often boring and not interesting.  

Horizons should be level!!  If you have sky and water, then having the horizon level is a MUST!!  

If you have sky and ground, the "level" becomes more complicated.  If your horizon is very curvy with rolling hills for example, you won't have a level horizon and that's OK.  Your mind's eye knows that hills aren't level.  If your horizon is the boundary between sky and land and only a slight hill, you're mind's eye won't find it appealing when looking at the photograph of that view because the horizon isn't level.   You can trick your mind's eye by adding a vertical element to the composition that the viewer will "know" is vertical such as a tree.  You might put that vertical tree on one of those vertical rule-of-thirds lines.  Your mind knows that the tree is vertical and won't mind an unlevel horizon.

Knowing when to break the rules is important too but make sure you have a good reason to break the basic rules of composition.  You might try getting added drama with 10-20% sky and 80-90% ground or vice versa. 

Share your landscape photograph that displays a horizon using the horizontal rule-of-thirds.  In a comment on the photograph explain how you used this technique in your composition.  If you break the horizontal rule-of-thirds, tell us what you are trying to achieve.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well.  Feel free to leave comments and discuss on the main event as well.

General Rules:
1) Your photo MUST be ORIGINAL.  If you post the work of someone else, you will be removed from the event.
2) You MUST have complete EXIF data for your photo.  Within the event, select your photo and view it large.  Look for the "photo details" on the right.  It should be complete with the date the photo was taken, camera and lens information, ISO, f stop, speed etc.  Photos that don't have complete EXIF data will be removed.  Others will learn from seeing what you have done.

Landscape Photography Show #43: The "S" Curve

Curving lines are a fundamental aspect of landscape photography.  They will move the viewer's eye throughout the photograph.  When used in conjunction with light along the curve, the composition is even stronger. Here is some additional information from Outdoor Photographer:

http://www.outdoorphotographer.com/how-to/tip-of-the-week/the-graceful-s-curve.html#.VWM-NE9VhBc

Share your landscape photograph that displays an "S" curve element.  In a comment on the photograph explain how you used the "S" curve element in your composition.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well.  Feel free to leave comments and discuss on the main event as well.

Bo and Barney are Going Strong!!

I posted this last Christmas and I have a great update!!  A couple weeks ago my good friend +jane weatherford  with the +Brown County Humane Society and I traveled to the +Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah to visit Bo and Barney!!

We volunteered at Calmar and Jane also visited Dogtown. We got Bo and Barney out for a sleepover at one of the cottages there on the property.  There wasn't too much sleep!  We played with them all evening and had a blast!!

Both Bo and Barney are huge cats now.  I remember the little kittens I could scope up in one hand.  Bo took 1.5 pillows and left me with 1/2 of a pillow.  Barney is even larger!!  There were lots of great cat kisses throughout the night!!  It was tough saying goodbye to them in the morning!!

Meet Barney and Bo

Several years ago, I visited my good friend +jane weatherford with the +Brown County Humane Society .  She was fostering five little kittens with FeLV.  She nursed them through their first few weeks.  I played with them and Bo would snooze in my lap.  What wonderful little kittens they were and what magnificent cats they have become!

Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah has a special building just for FeLV cats called Calmar.  They were willing to accept the "B" kittens (their names all started with the letter B).  Two volunteers from BCHS drove them from Indiana to Utah through snow and ice storms to get them there safely, and themselves back to Indiana.

The dedication of +Best Friends Animal Society , and +Brown County Humane Society and all the awesome volunteers amazes me!!  Please read the story of Barney and Bo and remember these shelters or your local animal shelter this Christmas!!

The April Inspiration circle from the great photographers in the +Landscape Photography Community !!  Share and Enjoy!!!

Landscape Photography Community Inspiration Circle

Congratulations to the Best of the Best for April, 2015!!  Each person here has had at least one photograph selected by a moderator as a #LandscapePhotoOfTheDay or have posted an inspirational photograph to one of our contests!!  Some have had more than one photo selected!!

Are you looking for inspiration for your Landscape Photography?  This is it!

I'm NOT in the circle, but really wish I was!
1. Study the landscape photographs produced by these people.  Each day, look at their work, study it.  Compare their work to yours.  There's a reason that their photographs were selected by a moderator.  Check out the learning opportunities in some of our categories.
2. Try to improve your landscape photographs.  *Remember quality is more important than quantity!*
3. Enter our contests.
4. Keep sharing your best landscape photographs with the Landscape Photography Community!  
5. Do not dump and run. Post a comment with your photo. Tell us about it or tell us about the experience.

Maybe next month YOU will be in the Inspiration Circle!!

Note: The hardworking Landscape Photography Community moderators are also in this circle.

Peace in this world as promised by God!!  What an awesome message!!  Happy Tuesday everyone!!

World peace, though a lofty goal, is but an outgrowth of the personal peace each individual seeks to attain. I speak not of the peace promoted by man, but peace as promised of God. I speak of peace in our homes, peace in our hearts, even peace in our lives. Peace after the way of man is perishable. Peace after the manner of God will prevail.___Peace in this world as promised by God!!  What an awesome message!!  Happy Tuesday everyone!!
