This is a big year for me, well as far as travel goes and lots of plans are being made. I am in the process of planning a trip to New Zealand and once it is over I am going to Tasmania again later in the year.
Those of you that follow me on Instagram know that I recently went away and was finding it difficult to work on photos without my Wacom Intuos Pro tablet. I have one at home, but it is a bit big for carrying around and I didn’t want to damage it. I can’t be without it for my day to day processing of my photos. The pen that comes with it means I can do fine detail work.
Last week I mentioned that I want to find a new direction with this blog and now I am ready to share with you what my plans are. I want to get back to this blog being more about my art practice and how I go about it. As I said last week, I don’t want to compete with all the other photography blogs out there and in the end I think of myself as an artist who uses the medium of photography. I’ve always been an artist, I can recognise that, and there will be a blog post about that at some stage. Please note that Monochrome Madness will continue as it has.
This post is a day late, I’ve been away at my mums. I went up there to take photos of a project that had just finished. It was also a great opportunity to try out the Nikon D500 a lot. I think it is a great camera, can’t believe it is almost time to give it back.
It is only two weeks to Christmas and if you are still looking for gifts I hope you will take a look at what I have that you could give someone as a gift voucher, or buy a copy of the book.
I told you last week that I had been published in the magazine Better Photography, but then earlier in the week another article I had written for a different magazine, Australian Photography, published it on their website. The first one you have to buy the magazine, but the second, 7 Tips for Better Cityscapes is online and you can read it on their website, click here to see it.
I keep forgetting to mention that at the top under the About page I have added a page that lets you know what gear I have and use. I’ve had people asking me from time to time what I use, so thought it might be good to add the list.
Summer is here now and I thought it might be nice to take a look at some photos from Flinders. The photos were taken last year. I love it down there, I should think about another trip, but not soon. The busiest time to visit any beach is the two weeks after Christmas, so I’m staying clear. I made the mistake last year going down to Sorrento and spent more time in traffic than I did taking photos. It will be nice to get back down there after the summer break in February.
