came across this burnt out bit of bush just outside of town and had to stop and take some pictures. the fire had stripped away all the details, and given the scene an almost monotone look that was strangely beautiful
Over the Easter long weekend we had the pleasure of photographing brass bands from all over the country at the Yamaha Australian National Band Championships. This is the second time that the Championships have been held in Launceston and it was a ...great pleasure to welcome over 3000 band members from right around the country to our city. The weather was amazing and the town was filled with the sounds of horns, tubas and drums.

Your corporate headshot is how the rest of the business world will first meet you, and as the old saying goes, you only get one chance at a first impression! Your image needs to convey in a clear and concise manner all the attributes you wan...t your clients and potential clients to see in you. Charming , approachable, trustworthy , confident and professional are just some of the things that these people will either see or not see when they encounter your image.
In the corporate world, a selfie shot with your iPhone just doesn’t do the job. Save them for your personal Facebook page and treat your corporate image with consideration and respect. There is still plenty of room to show your character, and the spark in your eyes while still adhering to a very high level of professionalism and sophistication
The subtle differences that that a well executed professional portrait can make will go a long way towards enhancing the perception that the business world has of you.
Photography Tips -Neutral Density Filters
We all love those magic hours just around sunrise and sunset. Thats when the light is at its most amazing and everything looks great. But what about when the light isn't fantastic? In the middle of the day, you can do other stuff, or have a nap, but if like me, you want to keep taking pictures than a neutural density filter may be just the thing. The basic job of a ND filters is to cut down the amount of light reaching your sensor without affecting the colour, and they come in various densities. The one I use the most is a 400x filter which cuts around 10 stops of light and allows you to use very low shutterspeeds.
less light entering your lens means that you need a longer shutter speed and so as a consequence, you can make images like this, the water moves during the exposure to give that soft dreamlike quality
Of course you will need a sturdy tripod so that the rest of the image remains sharp, and it also helps to make sure that there is no extraneous light entering through the eye piece
