Lest We Forget – an Anzac Day essay

I’ve just spent a couple of hours photographing the Anzac parade in Brisbane.
Apart from wanting to show my gratitude to those who fought and died for the freedoms we enjoy, I thought it would be a good opportunity to play with my new Nikon f2.8, 200mm zoom lens…..

Colour grading for that “Cinematic look”

I had no idea that movies were colour-graded, and that the same applications could be applied to still photography (more evidence I’ve been sitting under a rock for the past 20 years when it comes to advanced post-production techniques)……

Playing with light (beams)

My burst of enthusiasm to improve my post-production skills continues, with time spent today learning how to apply beams of light to add drama to my images, particularly in low-light conditions.

Master post-production ….or perish

You can’t expect to be competitive as a professional travel photographer unless you’re drawing from a broad repertoire of advanced post-production techniques (ie pre-sets, dodging and burning, masking and coloring etc). Such is the curse of modern photography that you not only have to master what you shoot, and how you shoot it, but you also need to know what to do to enhance your photo once it’s captured.
