Discovery – The Creative You

“The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”  Marcel Proust – author  Making personal discoveries is exciting, nature is rich with the opportunity for such experiences to get to know nature and yourself.  It is a special thrill that validates effort and is a spur to further exploration […]

Permission – The Creative You

“Nobody can hurt me without my permission”. Mahatma Gandhi – spiritual teacher Creative self-realisation is often not a comfortable state to be in. You may need to take giant steps into the unknown and we can give ourselves many excuses for not taking the journey: “No time. No money. My partner will not let me.” To allow the processes of development to begin, make […]

Lenses for Botanical Photography

The first aspect to consider when choosing a lens, or lenses, is the focal length. Keep in mind that lenses are broadly grouped into four categories — wide‑angle, standard, telephoto and macro — according to their focal length. It is often assumed that the wide‑angle lens is for landscape photography and the telephoto lens is […]

Photographing Flowering Plants – what a joy!

Australian wildflowers have a strong appeal to the senses – some are voluptuous in shape and form, some fragile; some have a scent that is almost overpowering, but in others the perfume is delicate; some are bold and brightly coloured, but others are pale and shy. They are among my favourite subjects for photographing with […]

Optimism – The Creative You

“Pessimism and optimism are slammed up against each other in my records, the tension between them is where it’s all at, it’s what lights the fire.” Bruce Springsteen – singer and songwriter While mans effects on nature can quickly turn to pessimism , a walk in healthy forest can melt that feeling. Generally I remain optimistic because of the […]

Varying the Viewpoint – photographic composition

When looking at a scene, you soon become aware of the amount of peripheral information that surrounds the area of primary interest. To overcome this, look through the camera’s viewfinder that isolates the area of interest with the peripheral information cropped out. Next, start considering which of the relationships between the elements now visible in […]

Writing and Photography

Expressing ideas, passing on information and writing for children with words and images has never been easier, how many people see and read what we produce of course is a matter of ability and marketing, but that is another matter.  The purpose of this piece is to inspire you to at least give writing a […]

Photography Tips for South-eastern New South Wales

The south-eastern corner of New South Wales is an area of many exciting photographic opportunities. I tend to divide this area into five primary working sites: Canberra and the ACT; southern highlands waterfalls, towns and forests; the coastal drive from Wollongong to Eden; the Australian Alps; and Jervis Bay as a stand-alone entity. Regardless of […]

Aerial Photography

The primary advantage of photographing from the air is that you are able to get perspectives that are not possible on the ground. To a great extent, the effect of light on landscape from overhead, whether from an oblique or vertical perspective, is much the same as on the ground. The main difference is that […]

Rainforest – a photographers paradise

Rainforests, perhaps more than most environments, provide a multi-sensory experience, involving touch, sight, smell and hearing. Being in the rainforest is a profound experience for me. It envelops my soul, taking me to a peaceful place, emotions not easily communicated in a photograph. The best conditions for photographing rainforest are either bright overcast or misty […]
