These beautiful images are all around us in nature. It just takes that special "eye" to not only see it but to capture it in a way that will turn that simple little piece of nature into a beautiful piece of art. We will learn how to use different angles, light and shadows, and settings to make subjects pop.

    It was a pretty uninspiring sunset on this particular day so I decided to try something a bit different. I fitted a magenta filter to my lens and took a few photos of the waterfront and surrounding areas. When I got home I downloaded the images onto my laptop to view them on a larger screen. I do like to use ?artistic license? with some of my photos and I use a spot colour app. It takes the photography back to monochrome and allows me to touch back in the colour of the original in the areas I wa

    For 2 weeks every winter Sydney is lit up with amazing colours and beams of light over the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, and various buildings throughout the city. I captured this photo of the Opera House from across the water at the Overseas Passenger Terminal. I used a slow shutter speed (of 1 sec) to capture light trails from the passing water craft, and I held my iPhone up against my lens to create an artificial reflection on the water.Canon R6ii, RF 70-200mm f2.8 (@ 70mm), 1s, iso 200.
