Photo Shoot out to New Norcia!

If anyone is interested, Peta North from Camera Solutions and myself have tentatively organised a day trip to New Norcia on a bus on the 27th of October.

New Norcia has some very cool old buildings to shoot and there are numerous photo opportunities available on the way up there and surrounding New Norcia.

Peta has put a hold on a 30 seater bus for the day and the costs to participate will be $50 a head. This will give participants, morning tea, a lunch platter and drinks as well as the bus trip up there.

The idea is to get together with other like minded photographers to enjoy a fun day out. Peta and I will both be available for composition tips and camera tips throughout the day.

For Nikon shooters, Peta will also be bring along a range of lenses that Nikon shooters can try throughout the day.

As mentioned above, there are only 25 positions available and what we would like in the first instance, is for interested photogs to come back to me and register here on a first in best dressed basis.

Once we have the 25 positions filled we will call for payment via Peta’s Camera Solutions so that we can lock in arrangements.

It should be a nice Spring opportunity to get out and mix with others in the photog community, so come along and register and I look fwd to catching up with everyone on the day.

I will post details of the departure location, time and return location and time etc, once we have locked arrangements in.

Goanna’s Stars

Had an interesting weekend this weekend for sure!

It started off with Luminous Landscapes running a story they did on me which in turn jumped my daily visit tally to 1,000 hits yesterday! Very cool start to the weekend for sure.

The next mission I set myself was to venture down South to catch up with buddies, Christian Fletcher, Ian Wise, Tony Armstrong and Paul Pitchugan.

The mission was to do a night shoot at Kilcarnup and after driving all the way down and planning the whole evening, when we arrived at the entrance to Kilcarnup, there was a ranger there turning people back as they had closed the beach as a dead whale was being buried by an escavator…..dam!

So where to we thought and after a bit of brain storming we decided on Goannas.

This was actually one of the last shots from the evening, so there are certainly more to come!

It ended up being quite an adventure and a lot of fun.

How cool were the clouds today! Managed to ping a few shots off at Lake Clifton and the Estuary on the way home…stay tuned for those as well!

Here are the latest shots from my new Nikon D800E which showcases both the excellent dynamic range of the camera and also the ability to pull detail out of underexposed images such as the jetty shots.

The sharpness and the clarity of the images is also impressive, so I am thinking I have made the right choice of kit for the up and coming Iceland trip later this year.

Model Shoot with the lovely Michelle

Peta North, Nigel Gaunt and myself went out for a sunset shoot this evening with a budding model looking for some experience.

Our model was the lovely Michelle who did a great job and the conditions turned it on for us as well.

The other reason for the shoot was to give me an intro into Nikon as my new Nikon kit will be coming soon.

Yes, that is right, I have decided to go for the D800E as I think this camera has everything I have been looking for in a camera. There are 2 Canon images in this mix and 2 Nikon images.
