Photography tips

A journey in Photography and sharing of how I go about taking various types of photos. Discussions include software and camera equipment and how to make the most of your equipment in a given situation.

When the everyday is more

After seeing a news report a couple of days ago I just had to wait until I could get to a place and look at something for myself.

We had a pretty bad storm a few days ago and the Storm caused a bit of damage to several Jetties that stretch out into the Gulf. What made it particularly bad was the fact that there was a very high tide that co-incided with a very low low pressure system.

A different Look

Sometimes it is good just to take a different look at what you see. I went out for a walk to a nearby waterfall today and of course I took some photos.

My Different look comes about because I also took a series of photos using an R72 filter. This filter blocks most of the visible light spectrum and lets you take Near Infared Images.

Event Photography

Last weekend I spent a full day shooting a national Karate Tournament. The Event was in a School Gym and I had quite a few "problems" to overcome to get the photo's I was looking for.

As soon as I knew the event was coming up I set about making sure I would be as ready as possible for the day. I made sure I had all the necessary equipment and that it was all working and that batteries were charged ready for the day.

Be on the lookout

.... For how other people set up.

Today, while out getting lunch, I happened to see a video crew set up in the corner of the food court. I walked past on my way to buy lunch and made a mental note of how they set up everything.

Fast Glass

I have an indoor event coming up that I will be photographing and every time I have an event I always consider how I might shoot it.

In the 4/3 lens lineup the zoom lenses are very fast but mayby not quite fast enough. I am considering picking up a Sigma 30mm f1.4 prime to use.

As luck would have it, I have been able to borrow one of these lenses for a few days and Have been putting it thru the paces to see if it is for me.

Don't leave home without it

Well of course I am talking about your Camera.

I had a little incident today that would have a totally different outcome if I had NOT had my Camera with me today. Fortunately, I picked it up on my way out the door and a single photo may in fact be the most valuable photo I take all year.

AFL Game

Well, Today I spent an afternoon at the Footy - I went to watch Norths and Sturt Play at Prospect Oval.  I packed a Camera, all my Flash cards and choose my longest lens and my new 1.4x Tele-converter.

The motivation for going is that the local weekly newspaper is running a photographic competition during the SANFL season - with a weekly prize and a final prize at the end of the Year. Not only was it an afternnon out at the Footy, but If I managed to get a decent photo I would submit it. (More)

Documenting an Event

I found out a bit over a week ago that a group of 14 Cyclists were about to commence a ride from Adelaide to Melbourne over 8 days. The event would see the participants cycle over 1100Km in a bit over a week.

I further found out that 4 of the riders and 1 of the support crew are people who work for the same company as me. So, I got in touch with one of them and offered a bit of support.

So, I grabbed the Camera and looked at what was on offer and waited.
