Photowalk Paris1,448(fr first, en further down)Ça y est, la pluie revient ! On va donc pouvoir faire plus de sorties photos ! ;) Et avec un jour férié qui approche, on va en profiter pour faire une sortie en soirée, entre le quartier Mouzaïa (la campagne à Paris) et La Villette (autrement plus moderne !). Nous nous retrouverons devant la sortie n°1 de la station Jourdain à 19h30, le mercredi 28 mai. On fera probablement une pause dîner en cours de chemin, vu que vous aurez probablement très faim.(en, at last!)Finally, rain is back! We'll finally get a chance to do more photowalks! ;) And with a holiday coming, we'll take the opportunity to make it an evening event, between the Mouzaïa neighbourhood (countryside in Paris) and La Villette (quite a bit more modern!). We'll meet outside exit #1 of Jourdain station at 7:30pm, on Wednesday 28 May. We'll probably stop for dinner on the way, as I expect you'll be very hungry.Sortie photo / Photowalk - Mouzaïa / La Villette2014-05-28 19:30:009G+

Mykal Hall357,738+Jay Patel and +Varina Patel are here in Australia for a workshop in Port Stephens hosted by +Brent Mail on the 3-5 Jan 2014. I have twisted their arms to do a photowalk here in +Sydney 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+Jay and Varina Patel Sydney Photowalk2014-01-11 18:30:00142G+

paradigmblue7,958Welcome to #ParadigmShift #6For #ParadigmShift #6 I'm sharing with you guys another one of my favourite images.  Back in early June, I was fortunate enough to be in Sydney on a week long work conference.  This just happened to tie in with the Vivid Sydney 2013 Festival.  For two weeks, the world renown Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge were lit up with all kinds of lights - it was a spectacular sight and event to attend.  I was really happy that I was able to escape at night on a few occasions after work and capture this event.  For my pics, visit my website here: http://www.paradigmblue.org/website/portfolio/vivid-sydney/After doing this for awhile, I decided to cross over the Harbour and venture out to the less crowded side at Milsons Point in North Sydney and look back towards the city.  It was so nice and peaceful on this side and the view was spectacular.  So I wanted to capture this feeling by taking an image directly under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and capture some of the skyline.  And it's this image that will feature in #ParadigmShift #6This #ParadigmShift will be different from others as it's a long exposure night shot - light is a scarce commodity with his image and it's what you'll do with it that'll make it pop!  I'll post the before and after shot below and you'll see that I opted for a crop guided by the rule of thirds.  As for you, do whatever floats your boat!Other details are:Filter: ND4Shutter: 151 secsISO: 100F /13Shot on a Canon 6D (24-105mm) - focal length @ 28mmSo there is plenty to pull out of the RAW file (linked below).  As always, I look forward to your edits.  Please play by the rules :)The RulesStep 1Share this event to your public stream.  Failure to do so will result in your image being removed.Step 2If I'm not in your circles, add me - +paradigmblue Step 3Sign into #ParadigmShift #6 with a short comment Step 4Download the straight out of the camera RAW file from the link below and edit to your liking.  The only restriction is to avoid Photoshop and create a composite imageStep 5Add your edit to the event by enterParadigmShift #62013-07-26 09:30:0037G+

paradigmblue7,958Welcome to #ParadigmShift #5For #ParadigmShift #5 I'm sharing with you guys one of my favourite images I recently shot.  Last weekend I did an impromptu short photo walk at a South Melbourne Pier and then ventured off to St Kilda Pier in Melbourne, Australia. See all my pics here: http://www.paradigmblue.org/website/portfolio/sth-melbourne-st-kilda/I found St Kilda Pier fascinating  - not so much being on the actual pier, which was a little boring, but the scenery around the base of the pier - especially the rock platform running parallel along the pier.  One thing that struck me was how long St Kilda Pier actually is - it's huge!It got me thinking about embarking on a project to photograph all of Melbourne's beautiful bay beaches.  Now that would be awesome!! If only I had the time :)Anyway, for #ParadigmShift #5, I'll actually publish below the untouched RAW straight out of the camera for all to see.  As usual, get rid of the dust!  You'll find the RAW pretty much over exposed in the sky - but post production will fix that in a jiffy :)Other details are:Filter: ND400Shutter: 31 secsISO: 50F /13Shot on a Canon 6D (17-40mm) - focal length @ 17mmSo there is plenty to pull out of the RAW file (linked below).  As always, I look forward to your edits.  Please play by the rules :)The RulesStep 1Share this event on your public stream.  Click on the "Share Event" button in the upper right corner of the event.  My goal is for all your circles to know about this and participate if they're interested.  If the above is not done and your image is submitted into the event, I have grounds to delete it.  That sounds harsh I know - but I want this thing to grow and get out there.  It's a small thing to do for access to a RAW file to edit and submit.Step 2If I'm not in your circles, add me :)  Step 3Go nuts and edit, crop, process, HDR, monochrome - whatever floats your boat.

Stephen Godfrey62,758Time: 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 15:00:0028G+

paradigmblue7,958Hi peeps,Welcome to #ParadigmShift #4First of all, a massive THANK YOU to all who participated in #ParadigmShift #1 - #3. I get a lot of feedback from peeps that they really enjoy this event so thanks for participating and playing by the rules.For #ParadigmShift  #4, I chose an image I had a lot of fun with taking and editing.  As most of you know, I've moved house recently and am still in the process of unpacking in my new home.  After weeks and weeks of this, I needed a sanity break and ventured off to #PortMelbourne  to catch the blue hour around this picturesque part of #Melbourne  #Australia.  If you come to Melbourne by boat, you'll dock into #StationPier  and this is the first glimpse of Melbourne you'll get - the gateway to our city.  In taking this image, I wanted to capture 3 elements - the sunset, the water and the buildings.  To do so, a long exposure using an #ND400 filter was my choice.  You'll notice that I have a dust issue on my sensor so it will be interesting to see those who take the time to clean this up.  Other details are:Filter: ND400Shutter: 30 secsISO: 100F /13Shot on a Canon 6D (24-104mm) - focal length @ 24mmSo there is plenty to pull out of the RAW file (linked below).  As always, I look forward to your edits.  Please play by the rules :)The RulesStep 1Share this event on your public stream.  Click on the "Share Event" button in the upper right corner of the event.  My goal is for all your circles to know about this and participate if they're interested.  If the above is not done and your image is submitted into the event, I have grounds to delete it.  That sounds harsh I know - but I want this thing to grow and get out there.  It's a small thing to do for access to a RAW file to edit and submit.Step 2If I'm not in your circles, add me :)  Step 3Go nuts and edit, crop, process, HDR, monochrome - whatever floats your boat.

paradigmblue7,958EDIT:  This event is now closed.  A huge thanks to all who particiapted.  Be sure to add everyone below to your circles - they're all awesome :)Hi peeps,Welcome to #ParadigmShift #3 :)First of all, a massive THANK YOU to all who participated in #ParadigmShift #2 - it was so much fun seeing all the different post processing pics you came up with.For #ParadigmShift  #3, I'm choosing an image close to my heart.  A few weeks ago, my brother +Dave Tomek and I went on a photowalk around #PortMelbourne   #Australia  - such a beautiful place to photograph.  One of the best known locations is #PrincesPier  - it's an absolute photogs delight.  That is, if you manage to dodge all the fishermen and other photogs in the area :)  For the history of the place, check out the Wikipedia article here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princes_PierThe posts in the water are what used to be the extension of the original pier - it would've been huge as behind me still stands a rather large pier.The RAW file was taken during the blue hour:Filter: ND400Shutter: 50 secsISO: 50F /13Shot on a Canon 6D (24-104mm) - focal length @ 24mmSo there is plenty to pull out of the RAW file (linked below).  As always, I look forward to your edits.  Please play by the rules :)The Rules- Share this event on your public stream.  My goal here is for all your circles to know about this and participate if they're interested.  - If the above is not done and a pic is submitted into the event, I have grounds to delete it.  That sounds harsh I know - but I want this thing to grow and get out there :)  It's a small thing to do for access to a RAW file to edit and submit.- Go nuts and edit, crop, process whatever floats your boat - bring out the best of the image according to how you see it.  But try to steer clear of using Photoshop to merge the image with others.- Please note, I still retain ownership of copyright on the image as I took it :)- Post you edit into the event using the "Add Photos" option in the upper right.- In addition to posting your edit into the event, post it on your public feed and tag me +paradigmblue so that I can find it.  Be sure to tag it with #ParadigmShift #32013-05-03 01:00:0043G+
paradigmblue7,958Hi guys,Following the fun we had with #ParadigmShift #1 (see: https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/116923280194426907545/116923280194426907545/posts/MaFFcFyE1MX) I thought we may as well jump right into #2 :)Thank you to all the people who participated in #ParadigmShift  #1 - it was so interesting to see the way you guys approached post processing.For #ParadigmShift #2 I have a real treat for you guys.  It's my way of saying thanks to all of you who took the time to participate.  #2 will be a RAW file of one of my favourite pics - "underbelly of a bridge".  I chose this pic because I love it and can't wait to see what you guys come up with - going to be totally fun :)This time I'm setting this up as an event so you can upload your edits into the event so everyone can see what you guys came up with in one place.The Rules- Share this event on your public stream.  My goal here is for all your circles to know about this and participate if they're interested.  - If the above is not done and a pic is submitted into the event, I have grounds to delete it.  That sounds harsh I know - but I want this thing to grow and get out there :)  It's a small thing to do for access to a RAW file to edit and submit.- Go nuts and edit, crop, process whatever floats your boat - bring out the best of the image according to how you see it.  But try to steer clear of using Photoshop to merge the image with others.- Please note, I still retain ownership of copyright on the image as I took it :)- Post you edit into the event using the "Add Photos" option in the upper right.- In addition to posting your edit into the event, post it on your public feed and tag me +paradigmblue so that I can find it and tag it with #ParadigmShift - with a link to the event - and not to the original RAW file.- And in the words of +Debashis Talukdar " it's worth reiterating that this is not to establish the right or wrong way of treating and image, but more an exercise in exploring how different individuals would interpret the treatment of an image." - Couldn't have said it better - so I won't :)- The event is good to go as you're reading this so don't wait and get to it.  Ends next Friday and the RAW file will be deleted.- And most importantly have fun!  Be sure to add peeps who contribute to this into your circles - they&#ParadigmShift #22013-04-12 15:00:0014G+

Gailen Mapes65,179Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  G-I- 16 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to June 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting May 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-06-16 10:51:18161316CC G+

Piotr Tymiński7,625My very own circle of PHOTOGRAPHERS v.2A word of thanks to all of you who are a constant source of inspiration for me and a botomless well of beautiful work which is a joy to look at Real people here who post their own work. Amateurs and professionals. And no, I don't care about the number of followers they may have. It's all about the quality and, of course, quality is a very subjective matter so don't get upset with my choice:) I'm sure it can be a great source of inspiration for everybody. Many of the people in the circles have me in their circles and some do not, but take it easy, you don't need to circle me back - it's all about enjoying some great photography. And some of them (what a horror!) do not even call themselves photographers but somehow happily produce content which beats many so called "pro" guys.This circle is obviously under permanent development as new photographers are added when I come around some work I really enjoy. If you are into photography and I've circled you it means you will sooner or later be in this circle. I am simply putting some sense into my contacts - bringing order from chaos, you see... If you are into urbex and derelict climate please look for another circle of mine which is specifically dedicated to such kind of photography.Sharing is alway appreciated. #photographycircles #photographers  #photography #sharedcircles  #topcircles #circleshare #publicsharedcircle2014-05-30 19:07:18415261819CC G+

Piotr Tymiński5,225My very own circle of PHOTOGRAPHERS v.1Real people here who post their own work. Amateurs and professionals. And no, I don't care about the number of followers they may have. It's all about the quality and, of course, quality is a very subjective matter so don't get upset with my choice:) I'm sure it can be a great source of inspiration for everybody. Many of the people in the circles have me in their circles and some do not, but take it easy, you don't need to circle me back - it's all about enjoying some great photography. And some of them (what a horror!) do not even call themselves photographers but somehow happily produce content which beats many so called "pro" guys.This circle is obviously under permanent development as new photographers are added when I come around some work I really enjoy. If you are into urbex and derelict climate please look for another circle of mine which is specifically dedicated to such kind of photography.Sharing is alway appreciated. #photographycircles #photographers  #photography   #photographycircles  #sharedcircles  #topcircles #circleshare #publicsharedcircle 2014-05-09 17:06:42319291429CC G+

Mark Goodman8,406Introducing the Photographer Inspiration and Engagement circle.This is a collection of photographers I personally find inspiring as well as active and engaging on Google+. My hope is that if you like my work you'll also thoroughly enjoy the posts of those included in this circle.  Who's in the PIE? You knew there'd be a hook right ;)- Mostly Landscape, Cityscape and Architectural photographers.- Share mostly original content.- Photogs that I relate to they way they take a photo, process a photo or that I want to dabble in a similar look to what they achieve.- A few people that have shared me in previous circles with an appreciation for their support.Who's not in the PIE?- A lot of outstanding photographers that may just have a different style or shoot a different genre from my own. You can consider them the ice cream on the side :)- People I haven't discovered even if they might be in my circles and people I may have overlooked. It's a big Google+ ocean but I hope to continue adding people that fit this particular circle in the future. - No spammers or non-photography related streams. If you find that's not the case please send me a message.Please add and reshare the circle so others may enjoy what I think is an extremely high quality circle.Have a great day and enjoy your enhanced content stream!2014-04-06 16:56:5721024720CC G+

+Jay Patel and +Varina Patel are here in Australia for a workshop in Port Stephens hosted by +Brent Mail on the 3-5 Jan 2014. I have twisted their arms to do a photowalk here in +Sydney 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 fineas lon... more »

Dubai Marina - Jet Lag, BAH HUM BUG

Alarm goes off at 1am Sydney time on the 31st March then head hits the pillow just after 1am 1st April Dubai time. With no sleep during the 14hr 20min flight, thats a total of 32hrs on the go. 

Jet lag, BAH HUM BUG…. we’ve got a city to explore. 

The Dubai Marina was just a short walk from our hotel so I took the opportunity to test out the +Olympus  OMD EM5 with the Oly 12mm f2 lens at night. The lights on the edge of this building were slowly moving up and down so a 4 sec exposure was enough to capture it midway through its cycle at maximum length. Of course I had it mounted to a tripod and triggered with a remote shutter to reduce vibration. This lens has become my default night time / low light shooter for handheld images. A task my D7000 couldn’t complete and that’s why I left it at home.

Here's a list of site that "Search By Image" app found that were using my images without permission.

An interesting update to my image of Dubai Marina that was stolen. It seems it has done the rounds on FB by a few Dudai sites with over 12,000 likes. I downloaded an app Search By Image to my Nexus 7 and it uses Googles Tineye program to search the web. I'm starting to rethink the whole debate about watermarking my images as I don't want to upload lower res files here. :( I know this is the nature of the web and it will happen again in the future so at least if its watermarked with a website people could easily find their way back to my images.

The main offender was https://www.facebook.com/ILoveDubaiCity

St Marija Assunta - You Did This

"YOU DID THIS!!!"

"Hey Mary, don't play the guilt game with me. I wasn't there."

That was the feeling that overwhelmed me when I turned around and saw Mary pointing at me while in this church in Malta. I thought churches were meant to be a place of worship and respect. Someone forgot to tell Mary this. I guess with a resume with a job description of "Mother of God" you can forgive her for that.

Rotunda Of St Marija Assunta - Miracle Of Mosta

Our next destination to be shared is Malta!!! This tiny island 80km south of Sicily holds a special place in our hearts as it’s the birthplace of Dianne’s parents, relatives still living there and a village full of previously unknown cousins. This was a journey for Dianne to visit the country of her parents and discover its rich history and memories she first encountered more than 40 years ago. We were there 2 weeks and for a small island it has so much to see. I didn’t do it justice with my images as there were more photo opportunities missed. Next time we return I’ll be hiring a car and getting to those missed locations in the right light conditions.

Imagine this, sitting in your local church awaiting the evening mass on the 9th April 1942, air-raid sirens screaming wondering whether you should be heading for theundergr... more »

A task my D7000 couldn’t complete and that’s why I left it at home.

Midnight at the Palms

After a recent profile clearout I realised this image was missing from my new albums. This was my most successful image in 2013 both on social media and in winning the B&W section of the National Focus Awards.

Every now and then I see it pop up in some places and while I don't have too many issues with how it's used, it does annoy me a bit that +Marc Lafontan continues to use it as a cover image, despite my nice attempts to ask him to credit the image or take it down. Perhaps a reminder here will help :)

Dubai Sunset - Run Forest, Run

"So how many people will we be picking up? " I said to our Arabian Adventures 4WD tour guide.

"Only 7 in total" he replies.

Sweet I thought. Only a handful of people to contend with while creating a few images. I can handle that. Our agenda for the evening was first visit a Falconry display then watch a Dubai Desert sunset and then onto an Arabian dinner Bedouin style under the stars. This was going to be AWESOME!!! As we approached our destination in the Dubai Desert Conservation Park I noticed a few more 4WDs entering the park and they were from the same company that picked +Dianne Hall and I up at our hotel. Mmmmm maybe there will be a few more people to contend with at sunset. The odds of getting sand dunes without foot prints were increasingly swaying in favour of next to none. :(

3HRS OVERTIME - DUBAI

+Dianne Hall and I could have spent all night here at the #SheikZayedMosque  at #AbuDhabi  however we were  limited by not having our own transport to get to this location from #Dubai  . We wanted to be there for sunset and we ended up arranging a private guide to drive us the 111km / 1hr drive each way.  It was a 3hr packaged deal which cost us a small fortune but this location was one of only 2 I really wanted to capture on our 3 month Europe holiday adventure. When we arrived there the sky was a boring blue with a hint of sand dust storm still lingering around from a few days before. So no epic sunset shots to be had and with that in mind we decided to make the best use of our time by visiting the Emirates Palace, not far from the mosque and return at night. We were at the Palace for about a half an hour and when the sky was just entering the "bluehour&... more »

STUCK IN CUSTOMS - DUBAI

As this is the 4th week into our 3 month Europe vacation, I thought It was time to post a blog about our first stop, Dubai.

We hired a car from Sydney airport the day before for $67, a lot cheaper than the $100 taxi fare. That way we could sleep easier knowing we would get to the airport on time for our 6am flight Monday 31st March. Our travel agent suggested we be at the airport 3hrs before our flight which meant getting up at 1am to shower and finalise packing and leave by 2am for the hour journey. Arriving with plenty of time to spare, we dropped off the car, checked our bags in and then processed to the customs check. That's when the fun began. I forgot to take out Dianne's laptop from my carry on bag and customs couldn't get a proper X-ray and needed to be hand searched. They opened the bag and when i went to remove the laptop from the... more »

Collaroy Beach Storm Cloud

The second image from my #CollaroyBeach  shoot on the northern suburbs of +Sydney .

Thanks to the cloud cover at sunrise my shooting time was extended far beyond the “Golden Hour” a few weeks ago. After capturing the first image I didn’t have to move far to come up with another composition. As the tide was coming in the waves had pushed me back to a more “dry lens” position. Moving back a few meters I observed the waves now spilling over the previously dry rocks and crevasses. I knew if I got low enough with a wide focal length I could really have an eye catching foreground interest that would lead the eye to the crashing waves, then to the menacing storm front approaching. So the story is complete. A beginning, middle and end.

I’m loving this +Olympus OMD E-M5 with the Olympus 9-18mm f4-5.6 lens. I feel reassured with mydecision to le... more »

No Sunrise For You

A few weeks ago I snuck out for a very rare sunrise shoot at #CollaroyBeach   on the northern suburbs of #Sydney  . We had several storms that week and the weather forecast was for a late morning shower so I thought I might get a dramatic sunrise or at least a moody image. Well the photography Gods tried to pull the rug from under me by hiding the Sun with a blanket of clouds but little do they know I love shooting in these conditions. If the clouds are thin enough they act as a giant softbox casting beautiful even light which can last for hours extending your shooting time beyond the standard “Golden Hour”. 

In this photo you can just make out the storm front on the distant horizon that was heading my way. I could tell by my Rain Radar App that it would hit in about an hour and would have plenty of time to get back to the car which was about 200maway. ... more »

Drawing The Line

This is the last image from the +Jay Patel  and +Varina Patel  Port Stephens Workshop held earlier this year taken at Stockton Sand Dunes a little over 2hrs drive north of Sydney. Who needs to fly to Dubai to capture dunes like these. ;) Even though we will be there very soon….. more on that later.

Now for that line. I have been contemplating upgrading to another camera at the end of the year and it was between the Olympus EM1 (from my EM5), Nikon D7100 (from my D7000), the drool worthy Sony A7r or the Fuji X-T1. Both of the last two required buying into more lenses which pushes them out of reach at this stage. So I have drawn the line in the sand and made a decision. No camera upgrades for a while just better lenses for the EM5. My D7000 has every lens I need and it’s taking a back seat this year. Camera bodies come and go but lenses can last a lifetimeso it... more »

Patel Port Stephens Photography Workshop. Day 3.

Compositional Challenge. Image No. 1

The last day of the 3 day +Jay Patel & +Varina Patel Port Stephens Workshop. Offically this would be the last chance we all would shoot together and it was an early sunrise shoot at Stockton Beach Sand Dunes for a compositional challenge. However the first challenge was getting to the dunes without being devoured by the spiders that covered our path. Webs 6ft wide with spiders just as big just waiting for a home delieverd meal to fly or "walk" onto its dinner plate. Now i'm fine with spiders as long as I see them before they see me. If I walk into one of those webs unexpectantly, I'm jumping and screaming like a girl!!!! Luckily for us we had our brave local guide +Johny Spencer carefully removing the webs and spiders with his outstretched tripod. Everytime he relocatedth... more »

Try Again

The image I had intended to share was going to be a Focus Stacking image from the +Jay Patel & +Varina Patel Port Stephens Photography Workshop held earlier this month but i failed with the image. :( I chose a poor subject, wrong composition forgot to check my ISO setting which I was playing around with and it was way too high. I just totally got it wrong but I did learn from the process. I had never focus stacked before so physically shooting it one has helped with that learning process. There was also the gained knowledge using Photoshop to combine all the images and the processing of it. So not a total lose as I have moved that one step closer to a better image. :)) 

This image was taken at "Big Rocky" after we had dinner at the beach on day 2 of the workshop. I had left +Dianne Hall with all my Hitech slot filters to play with and headed offloo... more »

Morning Before Part 2

Reassessing.

This would be the last image seeing with my eyes. The following 3 days at the +Jay Patel & +Varina Patel Port Stephens Photography Workshop opened my eyes up to a whole new way of seeing. I now had a glimpse through the "Patel Eyes" and a trip down to the ocean will never be the same again. Normally I take a ultra wide lens (Nikon 12-24mm) and maybe a super zoom lens (Nikon 28-300mm). Now I'll be taking the Nikon 105mm f2.8 Macro lens. If I continue with my experiment and only shoot with the Olympus OMD EM5 for the remainder of the year, I will either have to buy more lenses to fill in the missing millimeter reach or revert back to my Nikon D7000. 

Since returning from the workshop I have been reassessing why I want to move to a smaller camera system. When I'm out shooting Seascapes or Landscapes I want tota... more »

Patel Port Stephens Photography Workshop. Day 2

Walking On Water And The Voice Of God.

Day 2 of the +Jay Patel & +Varina Patel Workshop saw us meet for a sunrise shoot at One Mile Beach. Determined not to be late +Dianne Hall and I arrive half an hour earlier than the planned 5am get together. We were the first ones there and started to wonder if we got the location wrong when the rest of the group started to arrive. As the sky lightened up just enough to see where you were walking and the last of the group arrived, we all headed down to the beach. Once there I fired up the Sun Seeker app on my Nexus 5 to see where the sun would be poking it's head out on the horizon. Our entry point to the beach was on the southern side near the headland and the app told me I needed to walk further up the beach away from the headland to get a glimps.

Patel Port Stephens Photography Workshop. Day 1

5mins Before Sunset & It Looked Good On The LCD...

We all meet +Jay Patel and +Varina Patel  for dinner at the Anna Bay Thai at 6pm before our final shoot for the day at Birubi Beach, a 5 mins drive from the restaurant. Our table had been reserved and once seated we chatted about the days events before ordering. I think we were carried away socialising that by the time we ordered and our meals arriving it was already after 7pm. With sunset around 7.50pm and golden hour starting within 20 mins we had to eat fast to make our deadline. 

Dinner now completed, queued up to paid for our meal and in the cars off to our destination. This was the same beach where earlier today we scouted around the rock pools for macro and focus stacking practise so I thought I knew the way. I was wrong. By the time I realised my mistake,fi... more »

Patel Port Stephens Photography Workshop. Day 1

Tripod Sutra and A Lesson On Macro Photography.

After our Hyperfocal outing in Fishermans Bay, we stopped for lunch and rested until 4pm where we would meet up for our Macro photography practise at Birubi Beach at Anna Bay. It was low tide leaving plenty of rock pool formations for us to find suitable subjects to shoot. Now I have had my fair share of roaming around the rocks and rock pools along the Sydney coastland and have glanced occasionally into the pool formations with little interest. This time it was different. Now I was seeing with "Patel Eyes" and with a little trick +Jay Patel performed to encourage the lifeless uninteresting black blob to blossom into a colourful red Sea Urchin the "tripod sutra" began.

I had my Olympus OMD EM5 with its 12-50mm kit lens mounted to a Manfrotto 055cxpro3... more »

Patel Port Stephens Photography Workshop. Day 1

Hyperfocal Distance And Old Habits Hard To Discard.

We all met for breakfast at the Nelson Bay Resort and then a lesson on Hyperfocal Distance and Focus Stacking. I thought we would be "in class" until lunch and back in class till sunset and then shooting sunrise and sunsets. I was wrong. Luckily I had both our tripods and camera gear with us ( +Dianne Hall also attended ) as by 10am we were off to Fisherman's Bay to practise. 

I have made a point to shoot mostly with my Olympus OMD EM5 this year to push it to its limits before upgrading either my Nikon D7000 or the EM5. It also bides me time while both the Olympus OMD EM1 and Sony A7r drop in price and more lenses are availible for the latter. So EM5 was the only camera I had with me.

Anyway, back to the Hyperfocal Distance story. This shotwa... more »

The Morning Before

Two weeks ago +Dianne Hall and I attened the +Jay Patel & +Varina Patel Ports Stephens Photography Workshop from the 3-5 January. Not normally being so close to the ocean I ventured out before the start of the workshop to test out my Olympus OMD EM5 with a serious sunrise seascape shoot. ( I'm planning on taking this on our BIG EUROPE vacation later this year and thought I ought to test it out thoroughly as I have had it for a year and not done so. I've been relying too much on my Nikon D7000. ) Having scouted on Google Maps for a suitable locaction I headed out armed with a step down ring for my Hitech Filters holder, wireless remote with a  Nikon-Olympus cable converter and headlamp into the dark hours of the morning. 

I could see once I arrived the clouds were going to prevent any sight of the sun so no dramatic lighting would be happening.Howe... more »

Jay & Varina Patel Sydney Photowalk

We had 54 people turn up last weekend for +Jay Patel & +Varina Patel Sydney Photowalk. Well that's the head count from the group shot, not counting the 2 blow ins on the far left. A decent turnout. Even better was the turn out at the Hero of Waterloo pub after the walk. Usually we get the regular hardcore group of about 12 or so. Not this time. 30 people showed up and if it wasn't for the fact that some of the earlier arrivals had ordered dinner I would have moved on to a bigger premises.  However it did mean that everyone mingled more which was great. I stood for the entire night due to the lack of chairs as any gracious host should and watch everyone enjoying themselves. You're right +Michael Sutton .

1 Day To Go Before The Spamming Stops  ;)

WHAT!!! You haven't heard???? +Jay Patel & +Varina Patel will be here this Saturday for a photowalk around Sydney Harbour. We will meeting up on the steps of the Opera House at 6.30pm, shooting sunset at Hickson Rd Reserve and making our way to Obeservatory Hill by 9pm. Then more socialising over drinks. We have over 110 people indicating they are turning up and 70 maybes who could change their mind depending on the weather. So far the forecast it perfect with light cloud predicted for Sydney. Let's send the Patel's back to the States with a strong Sydney photography community presence.

Here's the link to the event for more details and map of the route.

This is one of the images you could capture while walking with +Jay Patel & +Varina Patel this Saturday the 11th. They were here holding a workshop at Port Stephens over 3 days last weekend hosted by +Brent Mail. +Dianne Hall and I were lucky enough to attend as spots sold quickly. More on that in a future post. :)))

The Wave at Night
This past week, I've been sharing my "Top 13 favorite shots from 2013" in no particular order.  Except, I saved my favorite for last.

If it sometimes looks like my and +Phillip Colla's photos are almost identical, it's probably because he follows me around and places his tripod right where mine was.  Or maybe it's the other way around; I forget.  Anyway, he's an incredible photographer, and a great friend, so I'm happy to share his knowledge and his company.  This shot, like several others on my favorites list, was taken during our Super-banzai-no-sleep Arizona/Utah road trip in June.  At first I thought this was a self-portrait ('cause we took turns lighting the Wave), but it turns out the silhouette has much better calves than I.

Bloody Sunrise

+Michael Sutton talked me into a sunrise shoot last Saturday as a fellow photographer from Tassie, +Francois Fourie was in town. Now I hate sunrises as it means I have to get up 3hrs before the bloody thing pops over the horizon and then there's no guarantee that it will be seen when it does. I don't mind them when I'm staying closer to the ocean and will get up easily. So I made the effort to meet Michael and Francois along with +Carole Diamond +Tony Gee  and Roxanne Cahill at North Narrabeen Pool on the northern beaches of Sydney. It was also a chance to start off my experiment shooting solely with my Olympus OMD EM5 (which I have had for over a year) as I prepare to take only this camera on our Big Europe Adventure.

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.

Then It Got Even Better

 I lined up this shot in the Queen Victoria Building in +Sydney and was pleased with the framing and lighting, then it got even better!!! Before I knew it I had taken a photo. It was pure reaction and no time to think. He walked right into the frame and was caught in the right position. This is my favourite B & W image to date. A big thank you goes out to my Street Photography mentor +Stephen Godfrey who  introduced me to the great photographic opportunities in the QVB and Street Photography.

I hardly use 500px but threw a few images up for the first time in ages. I don't have that much traction there so was surprised I got an email from them saying " You have been chosen to get early access of the new Profiles feature."

What's that all about??? Has anyone else received this email?

Playing "On" The House

I played "tourist" in my own hometown of +Sydney  last weekend for an up coming photowalk to be held here and thought it would be a challenge to come up with something different. It was the reflection in the windows caught my eye and I wanted it to stand out more. So I played around in +onOne Software  #PerfectPhotoSuite8  and placed a cloud texture blend to the house and it made the clouds already present in the reflection pop even more. I then added a slight motion blur to the clouds around the house to add a bit more interest there too.

Two's Company, Three's A Triptych

The third image of my Newport Beach album shoot on the northern beaches of Sydney.

I try not to show too many images with a similar composition but how could I not shoot these green rocks and blue sky as many ways possible!!! The difference in the first two was a mere camera rotation on the tripod. This one I only had to move a metre or 2 to the left, observe the characteristics of the water movement then compose and shoot. The only difficult part of the equation is timing.

Next weeks image has become my favourite from this series and even though I have this photo on my www.SydneySeascapes.com site I may change it for the next image from this shoot.

Let's Share Resources

During a conversation with +Leonard Odili I said I would share the podcasts and YouTube links I listen to and watch and thought others might be interested as well. So I'm putting this out there for everyone.

99% of these are Photography related. Amongst these are Photography tutorials,  reviews, behind the scenes, inspirational and just plain entertainment. All of these have helped me become a better photography in one way or another.

You will have to search the podcasts on your podcast catcher of your choice e.g. iTunes for Macs or what ever you use. I'm an Andriod user and use Pocket Casts App which can be found in the Google Play Store.

Now before I share these with everyone I would like to know, what do you listen to or watch??? Just comment below so we can all share the photography love.
