nice portfolio with a lot of portraits but I must say I like your nature/landscapes the best.

Thanks Kelvin.

Christian Testanière , February 03, 2007; 02:50 P.M.

you have a very goog portofolio with beautiful models and great colors for concert. For my photo : D2X with lens VR 300mm f/2.8 iso 200. Exposure manual 1/1000 s f/2.8

Dale L , February 04, 2007; 11:37 A.M.

Thanks Christian, for the comment and also the insight into your bird capture. I'm surprised you got both birds sharp using a 300mm focal length at just f2.8 - incredible capture though ... I have to keep trying at "bird in flight" shots.

Cheaster Riley , February 11, 2007; 02:32 A.M.

i love your concert photography,that was amazing.

Dale L , February 11, 2007; 11:14 A.M.

Cheaster, concerts are my fave subject matter ... thanks a lot for the kind comments.

Ted Gorczyca , February 12, 2007; 03:10 P.M.

like I stated back in Nov, you have a nice assortment of photos but I still like your nature shots the best, thanks for your comments on my photos

Dale L , February 12, 2007; 11:40 P.M.

Thanks Ted, I am trying to get out more and more to the parks etc.

Andrew Campbell , February 17, 2007; 01:13 A.M.

Thanks for your comment on my photo. I see you like music.

Cheers.

Dale L , February 17, 2007; 06:49 P.M.

Hey Andrew, no problem, you got very impressive stuff ... I'm not a musician but yes, I love music and concert photography was just a natural marriage of photography and music.

Linh Dinh , February 20, 2007; 08:08 P.M.

Outstanding Porfolio

Beautiful portfolio, super colors and models, congratulations, Dale.

Alberto

Dale L , March 10, 2007; 01:45 P.M.

Thanks Alberto ... you're no slouch yourself for sure, I seen your people shots and they are well executed - the "naturalness" in the expressions and poses is just great (that's certainly something I am trying to get a grip on).

Andres Saravia , March 13, 2007; 09:21 P.M.

Canon

Dale I like your photos if I can take pictures like your I should start teaching on Canon Camaras Regards Andres

I have 2 more model shoots soon. I hope they turn out as good as Leanna and Mariahs Anyways nice to meet you. Take care...Leanna:O)

Dale L , March 21, 2007; 01:27 P.M.

Leanna, thanks ... good luck with the upcoming shoots - I'm sure they'll be fantastic based on the great images you've got so far. Nice meeting you too.

Amer Jassim , March 21, 2007; 06:58 P.M.

Hi Dale

Wow! What a colorful and diverse portfolio! From these pictures I can tell that you are just full of life and enjoy every moment! Great work...what wonderful spirit! Amer

Dale L , March 22, 2007; 01:08 A.M.

Jim Craig , March 24, 2007; 09:27 P.M.

Enjoyed your portfolio Dale and appreciate the comments you made on mine. I was drawn to yours one day when I came across your posting of the CD cover for Chilliwack's "There and Back." My brother-in-law is the drummer for Chilliwack.

regards,

Dale L , March 25, 2007; 02:01 A.M.

Hey Jim, thanks a lot. Interesting, are you a Vancouverite yourself? I have shot Chilliwack a lot and Bill knows me but I don't think Jerry and the others don't know me - they probably recognize me though.

Pierluigi Chinellato , March 26, 2007; 04:57 P.M.

Well done a very nice portfolio...thanks showing this

Very nice, very diverse portfolio Dale. Good work!

Dale L , March 28, 2007; 01:30 P.M.

Thanks a lot kp and John for the comments and checking my stuff out.

Roger Leekam , March 30, 2007; 05:35 P.M.

Dale, superb portfolio but especially the nature images. I haven't seen many better duck photos - the wood duck is wonderful. They are very hard to get in Ontario. Notice you used the EF 70-200. I just got the DO 70-300 & hope it gives good images too, dont want to carry around a big lens.

Dale L , March 30, 2007; 06:41 P.M.

Hey Roger, thanks for the kind words. The 70-200mm f2.8 is my fave lens for most of the stuff I do (though increasingly I am using my smaller primes now too). If that 70-300mm is the one a friend of mine is using, I am sure you will get terrific images if you get some good light - as I recall it was really fast but it's got IS which helps so you probably won't need a tripod. I don't like carrying around a lot of gear myself.

Tony Hadley , March 31, 2007; 03:29 A.M.

DALE

Thanks for commenting on my portfolio. I looked at your portfolio and you have some terrific images. ongrats and i will be back to look at your new stuff when you post them.

Andrew Campbell , April 02, 2007; 09:43 P.M.

Thanks again, Dale. How's the weather in Vancouver?

Cheers.

Dale L , April 03, 2007; 01:22 A.M.

Hey Andrew, no problem. The weather here the last two weekends has been pretty good, got a lot of shooting done. Looking forward to more great weather this coming weekend which is a long weekend too.

Linda Davidson , April 04, 2007; 11:35 A.M.

Outstanding!

Thanks a lot Dennis.

Jeff Germo , April 07, 2007; 01:29 P.M.

boundary bay

Thanks for perusing through my portfolio, Dale. I actually live in Vancouver, but I pastor a church in Ladner (We meet at Holly Elementary School) and have an office in Tsawwassen, so I sometimes take a walk through Boundary Bay after work and shoot a bit. I think to get the variety of shots there, you have to do a fair bit of walking through centre of the park. Anyway, maybe I'll see you out there sometime. I'll be carrying a big tripod with a canon attached to it. :)

I really like your concert shots.

Dale L , April 07, 2007; 11:02 P.M.

Thanks Jeff for the comments - concert shots are my thing so I appreciate that.

Taha Idris , April 08, 2007; 04:13 P.M.

Hi Dale.

Hey Taha, thanks for visiting my portfolio and the kind comments - I shall go over and see the response. Thanks again.

Jackie Herring , June 20, 2007; 03:21 A.M.

Excellent

You have an excellent portfolio. I really enjoy your concert pictures and would like to know any advice or techniques you have to getting pictures of the quality that you have gotten.

Dale L , June 22, 2007; 01:07 A.M.

Hey Jackie .... thanks for the kind words.

Did you have any specific questions? In general, I prefer the look of no-flash concert shots in particular when there's cool lighting and the fog machines are going. You don't always need really fast lenses either (as some shows have really bright lights with a spotlight and what not) but in general a fast lens will serve you well. Typically the fast f2.8 zooms will cost you an arm and a leg but you can look into fast primes around the 50mm to 85mm range - these primes are fast, sharp and if you are within good shooting range will give you great shots. At a typical show you'll probably use anywhere from 400 to 1600 ISO go get most shots ... if you find your shutter speed is not fast enough you'll either want to bump up the ISO, open up the lens (watch out for focus and DOF when you shoot at big apertures) and watch for moments (i.e. when the artist is not moving too much) or some combination of the above. If you got great light and the artist is really animated, just go ahead and fire away, hopefully the key parts like the face and eyes are sharp and if other parts are blurred, it's probably fine - shows the action.

Liviu Chiriac , June 25, 2007; 01:26 A.M.

Thanks for your comment!

Dale L , June 25, 2007; 10:55 P.M.

Hello Friend!

Well here it is another year is passing away and we are coming into the holidays. I think time starts to go faster as we get older, it was just yesterday I wished my friends Happy Holidays and here it is again the end of a year. The holiday lights are starting to be put on some of the trees here in Dallas, we were out last night and some were lighting the trees. I wish for you all a holiday season with family and friends, after all is said and done all we have is each other.

I want all of you to know just what your comments and ratings on my work means to me, your words are my motivation, my drive to discover, to learn this art that we all love, thank you for taking time and thank you for caring about my works. At the same time thank you for letting us see your world, our lives are so much the same, we all care about our families and friends and we all share the same things, maybe someday our photos will help make for a lasting world peace. May you and your family be blessed this season.

Happy Holidays and Happy Shooting

Ken

Dale L , November 26, 2007; 02:43 A.M.

Bernie Moore CT , December 02, 2007; 04:00 P.M.

Dale, Thanks for stopping by my portfolio and your kind words. I read you bio and have one of the Tiller's Folly albums, "Ghost of the Mighty Fraser." I came to it by having a friend whose uncle was the character who inspired "Steamboatin' Jamiersons" Small world eh? Best continued luck with your sparkling career. And BTW I am astonished how well you can do concert photos under almost impossible stage lighting. Regards, Bernie

Dale L , December 02, 2007; 04:55 P.M.

Hey Bernie, no problem - thanks in return for checking my stuff out. Yep, sometimes it is a small world, I have crossed PN paths with a few local people already - which part of town are you in? I am out in Burnaby.

The low light concert shots are not as hard as they might seem if you got fast enough lenses - been using my short primes a lot the last year wide open at some of these concerts ... it's not a career for BTW, it's pretty much just all for fun.

Interesting story about the inspiration of the Tiller's Folly tune - thanks for sharing. I followed the guys around a bit in the past but have not had the opportunity to see them as much lately. Great bunch of guys though!

Charles Grixti , December 05, 2007; 10:40 A.M.

Thanks Dale for your kind comments. You have an awesome portfolio, especially the models portrait....well done my friend, I will come back to see more of your photos.

Thank you very much Dale for your good comment on my photograph of beauty of winter.

Happy new year my friend! Jacynthe from Montreal

John White , December 31, 2007; 10:24 A.M.

Hi Dale, thank you the recent comments and based on your portfolio it looks like you do a lot of things well. I'm a nature guy and the shot of the raccoon with its head against the rock captures an almost human-like expression.

Happy New Year

Monte Stinnett , December 31, 2007; 09:48 P.M.

Very nice portifolio. I usually just check out the birds, but u have such an interesting array of models...

Dale L , December 31, 2007; 11:07 P.M.

Jacynthe, John and Monte, thank you all so much for the feedback and checking my stuff out.

@John, when I saw the raccoon do that, I quickly ran right over to grab a few frames - it very much looked like it was posing.

anonymous one , January 01, 2008; 07:51 P.M.

Hi Dale, thanks for commenting on my portfolio. Yours is pretty darn impressive too. I might have to head out to a pageant or two to work on my portraiture, if you have any advice, I'd be more than willing to listen. To answer your question, most of my landscapes are from the GVRD. We're surrounded by beautiful scenery everyday and I try to capture it as best I can. I'm particularly impressed by your shot of the kingfisher. I've got a 300mm f/4 and I can't get anywhere near that close yet, so kudos. Anyway, take it easy,

Ryan

Dale L , January 02, 2008; 03:16 A.M.

Hey Ryan, I think just observing others you really need to go one-on-one with a model and be able to establish a rapport with them to get some really great shots - I'm pretty quiet so that does not help my cause. But typically I am shooting models at photo shoot contests (typically held at www.thecrystalmall.ca and www.aberdeencentre.com) and it's a hit and miss thing, I just blast away at those and hope that some turn out.

To get the Kingfisher I agree, I had only seen one in Stanley Park and it was in the middle of Lost Lagoon diving for fish from a distance. Needless to say, I didn't get anything really useable at that time. I got a tip from a local birding forum http://www.birding.bc.ca which led me to Ambleside Park's duck pond. This is where my kingfisher shot came from and your 300mm would be enough to get a good shot of it with some cropping.

Thanks a lot for checking my portfolio out and the feedback.

Tilihoi Cristian , January 06, 2008; 02:19 P.M.

Hi!

Thanks for your time on my portofolio... I've seen yours, as well and I really loved your work, I would say that you have a good eye for portraits, congratulation! Best regards, Chris

Hi,Dale

Thanks for your kindly critique on my photo "best days of my life". I look through your bio and portfolio. I like your photos especially the concert/show and nature ones. They are very hard to capture and you dothem so well and beautiful. Cheers to you. Best regards!

Marla, you're welcome, thanks to you too.

Francois Spenard , January 28, 2008; 08:35 P.M.

Thanks Dale

Thanks for your comment on my portfolio, they are much appreciated. As for my B&W photos, I only use real B&W film, I don't believe in digital B&W, as it is only an interpretation of B&W. As for your portfolio, very impressive indeed for someone that has been at it for such a short time; I love your portrait!!! As for the concert shoots, this is something I have to get into next summer, I love Jazz and I'll give it a try at the Festival du Jazz in Montreal. Again good work don't stop you still have a lot of good years in front of you. Cheers, Francois Spenard

Carlos Gonzalez , February 01, 2008; 12:34 A.M.

Wow, excellent!

You too....! Thank you very much.....I love your portfolio, the colors, the variety..beautiful models, great lighting,...I love the concert shots, you have a great eye....and obviously the critiques and ratings to prove it... I hope to have some great shots like yours someday....Thanks again

C.G

Dale L , February 02, 2008; 12:55 A.M.

Thanks Francois, appreciate the kind words ... very early on, I realize from researching that I had to concentrate on lenses rather than the camera bodies so I have amassed a decent collection of lenses - just waiting for the day I can justify a full frame high end camera. I have not gotten into Jazz yet but have visited our Vancouver Jazz Festival a couple of times. I think your Montreal one is a hugely popular one right? Good luck shooting it.

Dale L , February 02, 2008; 01:18 A.M.

Thanks a lot Carlos. You are too modest, you got some fantastic shots, my shots are largely due to my great lenses though and I am just hoping that the more I shoot, the more I recognize when a good shot is there for the taking.

Sally Delacruz , February 02, 2008; 10:15 P.M.

Hello Dale!

Amazing collections. I love your headshots,beautiful...

Dale L , February 03, 2008; 12:44 A.M.

Thanks very much for visiting Sally and for the feedback.

Jackie Herring , February 22, 2008; 12:48 P.M.

Amazing!

Your concert photography continually amazes me. I am still trying to figure out the best way to capture the essence of a concert and you have surely done that! Do you have any advice for an amatuer photographer in concert photography?

Your work is inspiring and much appreciated!

Dale L , February 23, 2008; 12:21 A.M.

Thanks a lot Jackie, for the kind words - I appreciate it since my niche and my comfort zone is concerts.

Salvador Penaloza , February 24, 2008; 06:28 P.M.

Thank you Dale. I have no idea what species Cyril is, however he is Texan through and through I think!!!

Thanks John ... cute lil' fella for sure!

Sergey Afanasyev , March 21, 2008; 01:37 P.M.

Respond to the portrait technique

It's nothing special really. The shot was taken outdoors with subtle ambient light in order to get rid off dark shadows. I use Raw format. To get right exposure, i bet you know it, it's better to shot using appropriate settings of exposure, then check histogram. Anyway, it's possible to correct some lights and shadows using raw editor. Then PS treatment. Firstly, i use BW channel mixer or just a channel. I convert the image using RED channel to BW. It gives smooth skin. Then i did duotone. Finally i applied glow filter - standard filter of PS using black as a foreground color. Certainly you should check histogram on each step. Luck!

Dale L , March 23, 2008; 12:53 P.M.

Thanks for the insight on the portrait you took Sergey :)

Georg Mylius , July 24, 2008; 05:06 A.M.

Dragonfly

Thank you for your comment ! You asked, how I focused the dragonfly. I used a canon 100-400mm. I was looking for the dragonfly with 100mm and changed fast to 400mm. On the other side I used manual focus, which was prepared in a distance, where I expected the animal (dragonfly use very often the same way). Of course the pic is a song crop. All the best, George

Dale L , July 24, 2008; 11:37 P.M.

Thanks a lot George!

I had come to know the dragonflies go to the same spot a lot but still it's hard to lock focus on them hovering and almost impossible when they're flying unless some prefocus is used.

Ali Hussein , August 15, 2008; 11:39 A.M.

Signe Robertson , December 31, 2008; 01:54 P.M.

Hi! I browsed through your gallery now... As I said, the colors and light in your photos are just amazing! However, the poses of the models didn't impress me much, but then I suppose I'm not much into casual model shoots either... I prefer the more artistic emotional types of photography... You know... Kinda... More gothic or fantasy inspired maybe... (Not coming from an expert)

Anyway, as I said, the model photos I'm not so fascinated by, though some of your events, animals, nature and child photos are just amazing! I will have to come back for a closer look at them later!

Dale L , January 01, 2009; 03:24 P.M.

Hi Ananda, all the best to you as well for 2009!

Hey Signe, cool - thanks for checking out my stuff and the opinions. Honestly, I like shooting pretty girls but I really don't know much about lighting or posing - I just tag along wherever there's an opportunity for model shooting. My niche is concert photography and that's pretty much the only genre I feel fully comfortable shooting. I will have to throw up a model pic from some makeup shoot I did earlier a few months ago - the makeup style might be closer to the "look" you mentioned you like.

iMAGO aQUA , January 08, 2009; 12:31 P.M.

Dale L , August 31, 2009; 11:30 P.M.

Hey Kombizz, thanks for the kind words. Yes I am of Chinese origin (born in Trinidad) and I am usually shooting in and around the Asian community hence the plethora of Asian models.

major williams , September 07, 2009; 09:40 P.M.

Kinda just stumbled onto your portfolio. That’s always the best way to find people here at PN. Really liked your concert photos. Always felt like anyone capable of taking great shots at a concert are worth their salt as a photographer! The rest of your portfolio is excellent as well.

Dale L , September 10, 2009; 01:50 A.M.

Thanks a lot there, Major - I love concert photography and glad you liked some of my images. Each type of photography has it's own nuisances but concert stuff is not easy, that's for sure.

Gino Alberico , October 28, 2009; 06:21 P.M.

Hi Tony, Keith, Jill, Alberto, David, Linh, Andrew, Mitch and Taha .... thank all of you for all the feedback and may we all have a great 2010 of shooting - we got the Olympics in Vancouver in 2010 so it will be a unique opportunity for me but will be chaotic here for sure so not sure what to expect.

Thank you for your comment on my photo. You have a great portfolio and very beautiful, with impressive images. Best regards.

Stephen Penland , February 23, 2012; 04:20 P.M.

Dale, you have a striking series of portraits of beautiful women; the Miss Chinese Vancouver portraits are especially attractive.  I'm envious, but primarily for the skills you have.

Dale L , May 12, 2012; 01:36 A.M.

Mihai and Stephen - thanks a lot for the feedback.

John Webster - Modesto, CA , November 26, 2012; 01:37 A.M.

Dale---You have an impressive portfolio of candid shots of beautiful women and publicity type shots at live events. I like many of your bird shots, also. My recent critique of one of your images had me assuming you were fairly new to photography, but that is clearly not the case. Your exposures look good for the most part. Are you taking any classes for studio work or photoshop? Anyway, look'n good with the camera.

Dale L , December 07, 2012; 01:26 A.M.

John, thanks for your feedback ... yes, I been around for a long time but still not at a top level yet, mostly because I am just pointing and shooting. I knew all the basic info but still ended up taking the one photography class at a local technology college - it was good, they made me go fully manual with the exposure and focus which I never did before. The lighting stuff, I am new to, I had some of the basic gear for it but usually shot with other people and they usually grabbed my gear and combined with their gear and set up the lighting - only recently have I sorta set up the lighting myself. As for photoshop, most of my stuff is done in ACR, I don't really do too much after I am done with the basic ACR raw adjustments. What I find is the image often starts to look worse the more I try stuff in photoshop and also I didn't want to spend too much time photoshopping.

I wish you a happy and safe holiday and all the best for the New Year.

Hi Dale.................

Wow! you've been here for an age yet only just popped up on my radar. I'm glad you did.
I've just spent an hour or so, browsing your awesome portfolio. You have captured some amazing models as well as "birds of a feather", and I'm impressed.
Look forward to your postings in 2013
Regards

Dale L , February 12, 2013; 05:16 P.M.

Grayham, hey thanks a lot ... yes I originally signed up for PN many moons ago, it was several years after before I started being active in posting photos up but yeah, even given that, I still been on here a long time.
