Unfortunately I have no idea what these are, I want to say snow drops, but I am probably wrong.
The Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show is almost over now and while I only went a couple of times it was great to be there again. I took hundreds of photos, some better than others, but still, it got me back into some macro photography. I really enjoyed playing around with the macro lens and the Lensbaby Velvet 56.
Yesterday I told myself I had to do the post then got so carried away playing with the Lensbaby lenses I have that I completely forgot about it. I do love the Lensbaby lenses though, they are so much fun, I think I might be becoming addicted. They are different to use, so a bit of a learning curve, I think my MM photo tomorrow will be one taken with them.
Dynamic Range Magazine
Most of the articles are in. We are now editing and working through them. Looks like a great collection once again. We are publishing next month, hopefully around the usual time, but somethings have happened and it may be a little later.
We do have some interesting articles. We have interviewed Lori Nix and got some insight into the way she works and how she comes up with her ideas. We are also looking at conservation and as photographers what we can do. There is a trip to Africa and some other things. I’ve written a tutorial on how to replace a sky. You will also get the image and a some skies so you can do it yourself.
If you want to make sure that you get the next issue then don’t forget to subscribe. You will automatically be sent the information to download your copy and will get access to it a day before we go live with it.
I’m trying to work out if I could run small classes for people who want to learn Long Exposure Photography here in Melbourne. The logistics could be interesting, but I think I could work around them.
One thing about Instagram has been how many people I’ve met that are here in my home town. It is starting to make me realise that it would be possible to run some classes here, I just have to find the students.
I am still planning the tutorials on photo editing, but until I get the magazine and book done I’m not sure I will have time for much else. I am mulling them over in my head and trying to work out exactly what I could teach those that want to learn.
So stay tuned, there will be more on this soon.
There is no question that I am enjoying my time on Instagram. I am getting opportunities to meet some interesting people. I went out on Saturday morning and met a new person. We took some photos around Docklands, there are a couple here for you.
So the photos, as usual are ones that have been up on Instagram. One you have seen before, but I have done a lot more work to it.
