It was a beautiful day for photos this fall at Gull Lake Alberta.  The Andrew family have a cabin along the lake which was a perfect backdrop for family photos.  We didn't have to walk far to find an abundance of great spots where the family could interact, have fun, and feel comfortable in front of the camera.

The leaves were an awesome array of golden yellow and the sky just began to mist over with some thin cloud as we began.  The clouds helped to soften the light improving the pictures even further.  I chose to edit in vibrant warm colors to represent fall as well as monochrome and an aged / desaturated "cabin" look.  As usual there were too many to pic from so here are a few ;)

Golf Tournament Sylvan Lake | Sports Photography

Group shot at the 1st tee.  The group looking into the sun can be challenging since people squint and there can be a lot of shadows in the eyes.  In this case it worked great because everyone had sunglasses and the shoot was for fun anyways and was not formal.  The sun directly on the subjects allows for proper exposure of the bright sky in balance with the rest of the scene.  Hence the beautiful color and exposure.

Hey!  Here are a few quick pics from a recent golf tournament in Sylvan Lake at Meadowlands Golf Course.  It was the 10th annual golf tournament organized by Joel G.  The event raised money for charity and proves to be a great time ;)  Costumes are almost mandatory!  Enjoy
