Some photos I’ve just finished editing from a trip out to Mt Barney in South East Queensland.
what a neat idea
A good friend of mine has just launched her website, although she’s been in the business of photographing families in the canberra area for some time, she’s only just got her business online
Be sure to make her business welcome to the internets – go here: http://www.trishsmithphotography.com/
She says this:
Anytime is a good time for a portrait session, but pick your favourite time of the year for the pictures that will have you thinking about some of the reasons you love to live here.
For your photoshoot, choose a place that is special to you and your family, and I will meet you there with my camera.
So if you are in the ACT and not completely frozen solid give her a shout for some nice pics of you and the kids!
Levi van Veluw´s photo series are self-portraits, drawn and photographed by himself: a one-man-process. His works constitute elemental transfers; modifying the face as object; combining it with other stylistic elements to create a third visual object of great visual impact.
You gotta check out this guys work – it’s pretty amazing! How he does it below…
For example, this one is “Tornado made of steel wool, cotton, ground parsley and moss”
My work involves the construction of small-scale meticulously detailed models using various materials and objects to create emotive landscapes. Every aspect from the construction to the lighting of the final model is painstakingly pre-planned using methods which force the viewers perspective when photographed from a specific angle. Using a mixture of photographic techniques such as scale, depth of field, white balance and lighting I am able to drastically alter the appearance of my materials. For images documenting how these works are made see my facebook fan page Matthew Albanese.
The Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 AF-S sets a new standard in ultra-ultra wide angle lenses. It is the best on the planet, and by a large margin. The 14-24mm is significantly sharper than any fixed or zoom ultrawide from Canon or Nikon, and that includes Canon and Nikon’s 14mm, 18mm and ultra-wide zoom lenses.
The 14-24mm does things no lens before has done. It is sharper wide-open at 14mm in the far corners than a fixed 14mm f/2.8 is stopped down at f/5.6! For sharpness, the 14-24mm is blazingly sharp and devoid of any coma or softness at every aperture, everywhere in the full film and FX Digital field.
