How Large is the Moon in a Photograph?

During the early morning of Saturday, 28 July, 2018, a special celestial event was to occur: a total lunar eclipse, resulting in a red moon - one like this: I captured this particular red moon on 28 August, 2007.  Incidentally, it was the first and last red moon I captured! For the most recent total lunar eclipse, I planned to rise early... [more]

Guest Speaker at a Camera Club v3.0

Last year, a good friend of mine, who runs a growing camera club, asked me if I would return for the third occasion as a guest speaker. I had the honour and privilege of presenting an audio-visual show and talk about light and composition in September of 2017, and in February of 2016, I presented... [more]

It is a good opportunity to see the work of this famous photographer, and is priced quite affordably. Afterwards we may toodle over to the Powerhouse Museum for the 1980s exhibition.  It is slightly frightening... [more]

Temporary Hiatus

Of late I have found that I have not had much inspiration for, or interest in, photography. I have not shot much, I have not published much, and I have not written much, either here or on a photography forum I frequent. I am not feeling inspired to even read the forum or some unread... [more]

First Timer at Motorsport Photography

Today I took a very significant deviation from my photographic subject matter interest and photographed motorsport. Back in July a good friend of mine invited me along to photograph the iRace Round 7 meet at Eastern Creek International Raceway. Now, I am not particularly interested in sports, know practically nothing about motorsport and have no... [more]
