Silver on a Cloudy Day
A good tripod and very slow shutters combine to make a little silver from a cloudy day. So long as you don't mind getting your feet wet, or that tripod.
Great Ocean Road Photography
Images of this rugged coastline attracts international attention from travellers and photographers, but you don't have to be Ken Duncan to get a great shot. Taking your time to make the most of the inspiration at hand is one way to improve your pictures, the other is to take a professional with you.
Angkor Wat and Siem Reap
Angkor is special. Crowded, popular, humid, hot and special. There are a lot of people who visit this place, but because it's special. It's one of those places that lives up to the hype. Hordes of tourists and scores of relentless souvenir sellers are the serious downside, have no doubt. But despite these impedances you can get great shots of the ancient ruins and contemporary culture.
Keeping The Lights On
One of the great advantages of shooting with flash is you can dial-up the lighting you require any time of day, or night. It’s a seriously big advantage over natural light, consistency and quality. For the last few months we have set aside our usual flash rig for something a little bit different. Continuous LED lighting is here, and it might just be useful.
Cruising for Albatross
A few days sailing the Southern Ocean is a journey that at first glance holds few photographic opportunities. But even in open waters the company of sea-birds and a reasonable telephoto lens can provide rich inspiration to the creative photographer.
What is Creativity
One of the greatest struggles we have as photographers is building our creative skills. For many of us it's hard to even define what creativity is. This feature is an attempt to give you a foundation to tackle creativity and some inspiration to build your own path.
Nepal Photography Tour
One of the most diverse and challenging tours I have ever organised, this non-trekking adventure gets up close and personal with holy men of Kathmandu, takes travellers into the pure air of the Annapurnas and rolls through the dusty streets of Newari villages in Kathmandu Valley. Sultry sadus, scenic mountains and the noble Newari.
As travellers we have a decision to make, whether we want to take the time to immerse ourselves in new experiences or just tick destinations off a list. Photography is no different.
