Since getting back from Tasmania it has been busy, though not in the ways I thought it would be. I have started realising that while writing is good, I need to promote myself more, so I’ve been looking into ways to do that. So today I thought we might go through some things that I want to promote.

Earlier this week a parcel arrived and in it was a new lens that Lensbaby have loaned to me, the Velvet 85. It is part of the Velvet series. I’ve been using the Velvet 56 for over a year now, so when they asked me if I would like to try it and review it, I jumped at the chance. I love the Velvet 56 and have loved using it for macro photography, so I was curious to see what the 85 would be like.

A Night at Docklands

A friend asked me if I wanted to go in and do some photos around Docklands last week. She loves night photography, and while I don’t mind it, I wouldn’t say I love it. Still it was a lovely night and not too cold. It is an interesting place to take photos. The most interesting architecture being built in Melbourne is mostly down there. It is a good place to look if you like architecture.

Floral Friday

It has been a couple of weeks since I did one of these. It is nice to get back into it and I loved finding so many flowers in my garden when I got home. I haven’t had a chance to get out to them to take photos, but will soon.

Most of you know that by now I have had one of my old cameras converted to be an infrared camera. It wasn’t a new idea, I had considered it once before when I first got my D800. At the time I had two D300s bodies, and I didn’t need two so I thought why not. When I looked into how much it was going to cost I realised it was too much money at the time.

A quiet Cityscape

This image was taken a few weeks when I had a loan of the Canon 5D Mark IV with the 16-35mm 2.8 lens. I was trying it out for long exposure photography and while I had it I took as many as I could. I did process this image a little a couple of weeks ago to use for something else, then I realised I could still do a lot more to it. Here is the final image.

You must have guessed that there would be more posts on this, especially as I learn more about what I’m doing. I’ve been doing more research and playing in Photoshop to see what I can do. Part of the reason I chose the filter for the sensor that I did, was that I was meant to be able to get some colour into the images. As it turns out, it hasn’t been as easy as I thought. I have spent all afternoon on the computer trying to see what I could find out.
