Vancouver wedding and portrait photographer Laura Hana

Moon at 4pm

Dec 23, 2010 Posted in Daily Pic

focal length: 300 mm (on a D300, crop sensor)
shutter speed: 1/4000
aperture: f/5.6
ISO: 2000
flash: none

We were on our way home when I looked up at saw the moon in daylight. It was so beautiful, I grabbed my camera as soon as we got home and took a few shots. This image is straight-out-of-camera with just a conversion to JPG and watermark addition.

Sometimes I look at my EXIF and laugh. 1/4000s at ISO 2000?

Gentle Hands Art Auction

Nov 23, 2010 Posted in Articles

Tracey Heppner, my personal friend and fellow photographer, is raising funds for Gentle Hands, child & youth welfare agency in Manila, Philippines, by holding an Art Auction.

Please visit the Art Auction website to preview all the art pieces before the event goes live on November 28-30th and even if you can’t make a donation through the auction at this time, at the very least please tell others about it. It’s for a great cause. Just read a few entries on the Gentle Hands blog and your heart will be touched by the stories of the children they care for.

Family Session at Garry Point

Nov 10, 2010 Posted in Families

Crisp fall weather, open fields, sun and a super-fun family means great portraits. Being a mother of a little girl, sometimes I forget just how playful little boys can be. Here are a few images from today. I hope they’ll make you smile as much as they made me smile this morning.
