A Couple of Large Projects In the last few months, since the Raya Pro 2.0 update, I’ve been working on two fantastic photography-related projects. The first is a new panel, called Instamask, that will allow us to create any mask we wish at the click of a button. It will be released at the end […]

Settling at Home After a Long Absence Six months have passed since I penned the article Why I’m Giving Up Life On The Road, which received tens of thousands of readers. The topic, it would seem, is one of major interest among the photography community. I imagine, while many people are hoping to quit their […]

Dragon Eggs at Moeraki Boulders I just spent an hour writing this post, which was originally about the two recent ‘controversies’ in the photography community (Steve McCurry photoshopping his images, and someone copying Marc Adamus’ composition), where debates among photographers were heated.

1 year, 9 months ago 13

Moon River – Mt. Cook and Hooker Valley at Night One of the interesting things about being a landscape photographer is how much we miss while we’re shooting. Every now and then I’ll be working with my camera, capturing nature’s display, and realise that I’m so focused on what I’m doing that I’m missing the […]

Epic Sunrise Glenorchy __________________________________ Hey guys! I have a question, if you’ve got a minute. If you’re a regular visitor to the blog, do you find the post-processing description and the before/after comparisons useful?

Perfect Timing - Milky Way at Nugget Point
1 year, 10 months ago 11

The Clouds Did Part I planned this image about 7 months ago. Using my Photopills app, I worked out the new moon date and what time the galactic centre would be over the lighthouse like this. The Milky Way would be in position at around 11pm. Unfortunately, the sky was black with clouds when we […]

Climbing the Point Climbing up to take this shot isn’t exactly mountain climbing, but it’s definitely a bit ropy, especially when doing it in the dark. You scramble up the side of the cliff, and then make your way ever upwards until you run low on bravery and choose your spot. At the point where […]
