Where does the time go? I do feel like I’m constantly trying to catch up with everything and it isn’t working. I had all these plans for the blog and they are just falling by the wayside.
One of the most amazing types of photography is Long Exposure and you can learn about it here. It can seem quite complicated, but learning about long exposure photography is a great way to help you decide if you really like it. While it can seem very complicated, the truth is, once you know what you are doing it is fairly easy. This article is designed to help you understand what long exposure photography is and how you do it. Though, the best way to learn is to get out there and try it.
It is can be an expensive sort of photography to do, and if you would like to try it before spending the money on filters then I can help you. I run long exposure workshops for groups, or individuals and I have the filters for you to try. There will be links at the end of the post, with more information if you would like to do one.
A couple of days ago I was loaned the new Nikon camera, the D500, from Nikon Australia. It is Nikons new flagship DX camera and last night I took it into the city for a test drive, so to speak. It is really incredible. I keep finding things on it that make me say wow.
With the camera we walked along the river getting some photos as the sun went down. It was meant to be a good one, well, so I thought, but as you will see wasn’t so great. However, I was taking photos in some places I haven’t done before, so that was good. I think I need to do more of that.
Now before we go to the photos, I have to tell you that I’ve been published in an Australian Photography Magazine. I’ve been a fan of Better Photography from almost when it began, and of course, Peter Eastway, has always been one of the my photography heros, might even meet him one day. The article is on using photography for conservation, and relates to the book I have just done. Click here if you would like more information.
Here is a small selection of photos from the trip last night. All taken with the Nikon D500 and mostly using the 14-24mm lens. It was a stunning night for photography, well besides the flies earlier on and then the mozzies (mosquitoes). They were in full force. We put on some much insect repellent, it was horrible without it. I will leave you with my sunset photos.
