Mykal Hall570,708+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 18:30:00140

Focal Points to improve your composition
Mana Island, Fiji

Although there's a lot going on in this image--dramatic clouds, reflective ocean waters, gnarled, shadowy driftwood--it's not hard to know where to rest your eyes. That's because the image has a clear focal point. Check out this article to find out Clint Burkinshaw's method for choosing a focal point and see a few of his own striking examples.

As you may have guessed, images like these require more than a single shot. If you want to capture ALL the needed details, you’ll have to bracket your exposures. Here is how we do it.

New Bracketing and Blending Collaboration With Visual Wilderness.

I often mention bracketing and blending exposures to capture high dynamic range light such as in this photo. When a camera can't record all of the light in a single exposure, one solution is to take bracketed exposures and blend the best parts of each one to create a natural and complete final image. I have been teaching these skills in classes and video tutorials for several years now.

Expanding on that I'm excited to announce a collaboration with photography educators, Varina and Jay Patel from Visual Wilderness. Together we have created a comprehensive Bracketing and Blending course for folks who want to learn how to photograph and develop natural looking high dynamic range images.

You can find out more about it at the link below.
