Quiet Thursday’s: Taking it Easy

You all know that I am working hard at the moment, but that doesn’t mean I’m not also trying to take it easy and make sure I have some time for myself as well. I had a lot of time last week to relax and just take photos. This week has been about getting things ready and moving forward with some projects.  Things are happening which is good. I haven’t put a lot of photos up on Social Media this last week, but will show you what I have done.  I did take some photos with my phone that I processed and will show as well. This was taken on Saturday at Seaford Pier. I was using my really wide angle lens and shot the rock in front, though the rock was only about 15cm high. I like the way it looks a lot bigger. From the trip to the Twelve Apostles this is the only one I’ve really processed so far. I did put this up in a group that I am in. The …

MM 2-20: Monochrome Madness 2-20

We are up to week 20 already, almost half way through the year, so surprising to see how quickly it passes. I know it happens with everything, but still, always surprises me. We have a great week of Monochrome Madness for you, and I know you are going to love it. Two more weeks to our next theme, which of course is the Bridges theme. Some images have started coming in already and they are looking great. Next theme is the first Wednesday of August, MM 2-22. My image this week was taken the other morning while Karen was still here. We went here on Saturday morning to take photos. She saw some photos of it and said she wanted to go, so off we went. It was a great place. I’ve been there before, but didn’t have my tripod or filters with me, so I am very pleased that I got another chance at taking some images there.

UfD: 10 Most Popular Up for Discussion Posts

This week as I am away I thought I would cheat and maybe look back at the most popular Up for Discussion Posts that have been done. Some are recent and some not. I thought you might enjoy looking back at them. I was really surprised with the results and I really thought that other posts would have been more popular. It has been great to look back. 10 – UfD: Black and White Photography My Way A tutorial I wrote on how I do black and white photos. 9 – UfD: 5 Things I Wished I’d Never Wasted Money On This was an interesting one to do to look at the things we wished we had never purchased. 8 – UfD: Why that Camera This was a discussion about how we end up with the cameras that we end up with. 7 – UfD: 10 Things I Can’t Live Without in My Kit What things I have got that I think are essential for my photography. 6 – Up for Discussion: Camera Bags The never ending discussion on which bag is right for you. …

MM 2-19: Monochrome Madness 2-19

Here we are and here’s another week of Monochrome Madness to show you. It’s a busy week, and I hope you enjoy the images this week. Don’t forget the next theme is the first Wednesday of August, MM 2-22 and the theme is Bridges. The other day I went for a drive through the countryside and we saw patches of fog along the way. Well I couldn’t help myself and I had to stop.  I love foggy images. I am hoping to see more while I’m here in Apollo Bay.

MM 2-18: Monochrome Madness 2-18

Last week’s theme was great. It was fantastic to hear all the comments and how people found the K entries. I’ve heard from some that they were stumped on a few, and then others were great. Just a reminder that the next Monochrome Madness theme is Bridges, and it is going to be the first week of August, MM 2-22. Shall we take a look at MM for this week? On the weekend I went to Point Lonsdale for the sunrise. As you can see there wasn’t one, it was too overcast, however I loved the clouds. They were like long exposure clouds but they were natural. I kept trying to get the best images with them. I liked this one looking down the pier with the clouds above.

Tuesday’s Bits and Bobs: Getting Ready for Time Away

It seems I’m doing the same thing as before, going out too much to take photos and not spending nearly enough time at home. I have decided to just enjoy it for the next week and a bit and then get things organized again. Dynamic Range Magazine I’ve been spending a bit of time looking at other photography magazines and working out what it is that I want this one to be about. I am thinking about you all and what you have said you would like. It is an interesting thing to examine. Articles have been coming in and it is exciting to think that it is really coming together. Hopefully it will be ready and available for you to purchase at the end of the month. Book I have to get to this and start working out what images I want to be in it. I have hundreds of photos so I need to cull them down, should be great looking through them all and working out which ones. Online Classes I just …

MM 2-17: Monochrome Madness Theme K

Here we are with the next theme. I have marveled as the images have been coming in and the response to the letter K has been fantastic.  I know that many of you are going to be amazing at the images that we have for this week.  I do apologize for how hard it was.  I almost didn’t have an image for it. There has been confusion about when the themes are, we are going to have them the first Wednesday of the month, which means, in Australia. For the next theme I’m making it a little easier, it is going to be Bridges. I love bridges and I know many of you do as well. The images will be for MM 2-22. Here is my image, a Kookaburra. Luckily in Australia there are a few animals and birds that start with the letter K. I took this image a while a month or so back and never did anything with it. I played around with it and got this. Don’t forget all the instructions …
