Get to Know Eight Favourite Toronto Neighbourhoods and BIAs

Featured image by Norm Li / Centrecourt Toronto is a city of dozens of unique and inspiring neighbourhoods, each offering a special aspect that makes them original. Here’s our profile of eight of our editors favourites. Read on and then get out there and explore! What is a BIA? The City of Toronto describes them…

Shoot Wide / Landscape and Crop to Portrait or Square Aspect Ratio (Photography and Social Media Tips)

It’s important to capture your images and save your work at high resolution, even if the final destination is social media, which is very much a low res medium. As a photographer, I prefer to shoot in landscape mode, which is more natural to me. I can then post landscape images online to my website or Flickr, and optionally post portrait crop images to social media such as Instagram. In this post I’ll explain my process and share examples.
