A New Year

As December draws to a close, I guess it is only natural to turn our thoughts to the year ahead. I have no real plans for 2016 at this point in time; however 2015 was pretty much the same, apart from our planned trip to the New Zealand. I ended up with three Holidays (NZ, Uluru and Great Ocean Road), plus a new car, a new camera, new lens………..add it all up 2015 was a damn good year!

What did I achieve in 2015

  • I learned how to take Long Exposures with and without ND Filters
  • I learned how to create fabulous images with light painting
  • I learned Astro Photography
  • I learned how to use fabulous software like Lightroom and Nik Effects, Topaz Labs and more in depth Photoshop
  • I learned stacked shots and macro photography
  • I learned a lot about New Zealand and Uluru & Kata Tjuta
  • I learned buying a new car is not always fun and games
  • I learned selling second hand cars is painful
  • I learned cameras don’t bounce very well :-p

What do I hope to achieve in 2016

  • Learn off camera Flash photography for portraiture
  • Learn more about Natural light photography for portraiture
  • Build my Studio up and take on more clients
  • Shoot more sunrise and sunsets
  • Visit more remote locations in Victoria
  • Do more creative photographic shoots, not just standard portraits
  • Getting fitter and healthier (to do all of the above), but we all say this don’t we, how many actually do it?

I have started to set up my online Portfolio, if you haven’t been to visit me on other Social Media Platforms, please do
