Leigh Diprose34,032@114907754216925041644 and Photo Insomnia​ join together to host the very 1st FREE photo walk in Sydney at the Rocks.  All photography levels are welcome to join @110657332373070373287 on Sunday 21st June, at 7:00 pm for some night photography fun.  We will meet at the Rocks near the Hickson Road Reserve and then make our way slowly to Observatory Hill. You might even get to see his DJI Phantom 3 drone fly off from Observatory Hill when we make our way there to take some pictures. After we have worked up a thirst we can wonder down to The Lord Nelson Brewery for a few drinks.  This is where we will draw the prize, thanks to +Fujifilm Australia​ one lucky winner will win a Fujifilm X-A1 with XC 16-50mm Lens Kit![FREE] SYDNEY PHOTO WALK2015-06-21 19:00:0021  
Mykal Hall510,705+101145980349117737014 and +115105647022907007398 are here in Australia for a workshop in Port Stephens hosted by +111465359080289844494 on the 3-5 Jan 2014. I have twisted their arms to do a photowalk here in +104262770460851770269 on the 11 January 2014.  So lets show our guest the welcome the Sydney Photo Community has to offer.  We will meet on the steps in front of the Sydney Opera House at 6.30pm and slowly make our way to Hickson Rd Reserve for sunset and then to the end point at Observatory Hill by 9pm. I have plotted a few photo opportunity locations along the route as well as public toilets that I know of. https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?mid=zw_eAURDDMag.kLJfMBZmQ50o  There are plenty of food outlets to grab a quick bite to eat at Circular Quay for the journey. I have walked the route in 1hr 40mins at a leisurely pace but you may want to stay at one location longer if you desire. That will be fine as long as we all get together at the start to greet Jay and Varina and then at the end point to say our goodbyes. Then afterwards if you still feel in the mood to chat over a drink we will be heading to The Hero of Waterloo (if there is only a small group) or the Harbour View Hotel (if there are more than the Hero can fit). I recommend catching public transport to Circular Quay or Town Hall but if you drive in there are a few parking stations within a short walk to the Opera House. I suggest downloading the "Cheap Parking App" from the Google playstore or iTunes. This will give you pricing options from closest or cheapest and links to get to them. I hope everyone has a great time during the walk socialising and remember you can approach Jay, Varina and myself at anytime to ask any questions. Please share this with anyone you may know who would want to join us. :)))  Looking forward to see you all and don't forget the hash tag #PatelSydneyPhotowalk +107073852799630124249 Jay and Varina Patel Sydney Photowalk2014-01-11 18:30:00141

We have broken this walk into two parts, the first part is an early start for those that like to get up early to shoot sunrise, we will be meeting outside of Luna Park next to the Milsons Point Ferry wharf at 6am and making our way around to Jeffrey Street Wharf at Kirribilli where will meet those of you that want to sleep in! At 8:30am the walk will continue back to the starting point of Luna Park where it will conclude. Everyone of all skill levels is welcome… as usual with my PhotoWALKS it does not matter what type of camera you have, even your smart phone will do the trick! #G+2yearanniversary SYDNEY G+ 2 year anniversary Worldwide PhotoWALK2013-06-28 22:00:0046  
Stephen Godfrey94,759Time: 3pm Location: Newtown Train Station (near the street) I will be there no matter the weather conditions. Even if it is raining there will still be plenty of cover around Newtown to shoot while not getting too wet. Sorry for not updating this before now, been a very busy week. Shoot me a message if you have any questions. ---------------------- It has been about a year since the last time I ran a photowalk so I guess it is time to do so again. Once again we will be heading to Newtown with the intention of doing some street photography. Never fear if you are not into street shooting there are plenty of other things around Newtown to keep you occupied, from the Historic Newtown cemetery to lane ways full of graffiti.  If you are new or never tried Street Photography never fear I will help you get started with a small introductory workshop on how to get started. Oh and the reason I run a photo walk at this time of year it coincides to my birthday so why not do something you love doing around your birthday. More details about the start and finish location to follow. PS I cannot promise another rainbow.Newtown Street Photography Photowalk2013-05-25 15:00:0028

Hanging on!

One thing about macro photography is getting close to your subject. Some times it is easy, most times they can be difficult or impossible to reach.  Like when I was taking this one, it was amongst thick grass. My camera was cover by the surrounding grass in order to get close. Make it worse they are entwine with the one this wasp was on.

So even to adjust the focus resulted in shaking this one grass as my hand touch the surrounding grasses. Every shake I hope it didn't decide to fly off.

Update: I had this photo retouch by +Dunken K Bliths to see the result have a look on the following link:

Realise I reach a milestone.

Being off Google Plus for past couple weeks. In the meantime I achieve 20000 Followers. Surprising I was lucky to achieve this as I have consider closing this account many times. 

I still wander around in the park during the cold mornings here in Australia. Getting strange looks from people seeing this guy seeming hiding in the bush with camera in hand and tripod. 

So I thank you all for following me as there is so many great photographers out there and you choose to follow me. :-)

After a light shower!

Always enjoy going out after a shower, to see the effect of rain drops on the flowers. Often you get the best colours as a result.

Little damp!

I recently obtain GPS unit for my Pentax. Hope to tag many of my future macros. Though took me awhile to work what feature in Lightroom was removing the Co-Ordinates, when importing.

One Cold Morning!

Officially winter here in Australia and this morning was certainly very cold for us. For was 0 degree Celsius as I did my morning walk. I thought there was not much to photograph until I decide to take some photos of local flowers. Hence  I found this little spider sitting on this flower, despite the cold.

Lens Used: Pentax-D FA 100mm Macro F2.8 WR

I thought I try out this Collection just release on Google Plus. In this case I added some of the photos of macros that were taken all in close proximity to where I live.

Completed!

Day 5 of my Nature Photo Challenge.

First couple days at Jervis Bay was very wet. So I taken the chance to photograph flowers in the nearby gardens. Can hear people laughing when they see me outside in the rain, taking photos of flowers. In the end I was happy as it was fun doing something that I enjoy. Almost felt like a kid playing in the rain.  

This is my Fifth and final submission for #naturephotochallenge   Day five.

To participate, include the #naturephotochallenge  hash tag. Then tag the person who invited you, and then invite a friend to join.

Share 1 photo each day over 5 days to complete the challenge. They don't have to be consecutive days ~ take all the time you need!

Moon Setting Over Jervis Bay.

Spend the Easter weekend at Jervis Bay. So got up early for a Sunrise session, but it was block out by the clouds. But I wish that I have got there earlier for the Moon was still up. So I manage several shots before it disappear.

I'm The King Of the Castle!

Day 4 of my Nature Photo Challenge.

Found this group Male Nomia Bees on top of a tall dried out plant. What you see here is just the top of the group of approximately 40 males bees. Was difficult to photograph as when they move there is a slight sway as the plant was over 6 feet tall on old scale. Seriously need to invest in a clamp to hold it still.

I'm The King Of the Castle!

Day 4 of my Nature Photo Challenge.

Found this group Male Nomia Bees on top of a tall dried out plant. What you see here is just the top of the group of approximately 40 males bees. Was difficult to photograph as when they move there is a slight sway as the plant was over 6 feet tall on old scale. Seriously need to invest in a clamp to hold it still.

This is my Fourth submission for #naturephotochallenge   Day Four.

Neon Cuckoo Bees do love their Black and blue with their quirky behaviours such as sleeping vertically upside down. But this one had to be different.

One very docile Robber Fly I found this Morning in thick Scrubs. Despite the accidental knocks shaking the whole branch as I endeavour to get closer. It remain still as if nothing was happening.

More from same place, different find!

From this morning walk, as usual start in the same place. Again found something different within metres of more recent photos. In this case a still Unidentified Caterpillar. Taken at 1:3 on my Pentax 100mm F2.8 WR lens.

"All Tied Up!*

This morning I came upon this wasp who got caught in a Orb Spider web. Luckily the Spider has gone to sleep for the day. Many of the photos didn't came out as it continue to struggle to break free. This shot I used my Metz Ring Flash and I like the effect.

Little Sun before I start the day!

This photo of a Skipper is one of the first photos I taken for 2015. Here I had to cropped the photo in order to get closer. Since I got my new Pentax K3 I've noticed a difference between it and the old K5. So I going to take both bodies out and try do a comparison. Meantime reading up on taking night shots while I in Tasmania later this month.

Currently light showers here today in Sydney. So went for a walk in the reserve. I think I was too impatience as many shots did not came out. This is one of the better shots of a Botany Bay Weevil.

Out again with my new Pentax K3 and realise many photos I do not need to crop. I do see some noise when zoom in, but also more details. This Robber Fly was taken at 1:3 on my Pentax D FA 100mm F2.8 Macro WR Lens.

Seeing a difference already!

My new Pentax K3 body arrived last night from Adorama. So I had a quick play in order to learn some of the new features. Then I went out this morning to take some shots. So far I'm happy with I seen. 
Here is Adult Bronze Orange Bug with a Nymph.

Good Morning as the rain start to clear!

Last few days the thunderstorms are easing up to cloudy with light showers. My favourite conditions for Macro photography.

"Odd Couple!"

Found this Green Gum Leafhopper, that seemingly has its legs around a nymph for protection. I do have other photos of a ant efforts in order to extract the nymph, but was too blurry.

One Wet Foot!

Another photo from yesterday walk. This time a Damselfly, slowly waking up as the day gets warmer.
