Georgian Bay Islands Shoot

Posted on: July 18th, 2016 by gregvanriel No Comments


Jingkai and I did a cool shoot of 2 houses designed by William Grierson that are situated on some islands in Georgian Bay which is in Lake Huron, in Ontario, Canada.  In this video we thought it would be interesting to talk about each other and how we work together.  We also discuss some specific photography techniques such as staging and dealing with locations that have big differences in exposure from inside to outside.  Feel free to let me know what you think.

After this long winter here in Eastern Canada some of us are really looking forward to some fun in the sun.  Here is some eye candy to get you in the mood!

Don't forget that you’re telling a story.  Like this next one.  Can you imagine lying in the hammock chillin’ out with a good book, magazines, and your favorite beverage?


Sometimes it’s nice to focus on some of the details and leave the rest to the imagination.
