Regular Random – Grevillea

I bought a new toy recently and I will eventually do a post just on that new piece of kit, but for now, I am still playing with it and learning. It is a Macro Light Ring which attaches to the end of the lens. One of the biggest problems with macro is finding enough…

Autumn Outings – Splash Workshop

One of my photography groups often runs creative workshops, where we get to hang out, play around and enjoy concepts we may not have tried before. Earlier in the year we did Balloon Bursting, and over the years we have done a lot, they are always fun and quite often messy, so it’s great I am…

A Day with Desley…

So over Easter, we planned to spend an afternoon with our cameras, some interesting subjects and collaborate on my Dapper Rabbit project, which is now slowly starting to come together.

Autumn Skies

I cannot really call it a day trip, more an evening out, about 30 of us all trouped up to RJ Hammer Arboretum, in Olinda and played with crystal clear Autumn skies, the moon would not rise until after midnight. I have shot in the park many times, but never at night, I’d never thought…
