Rodd Point (again)

Rodd Point (again)

Moments That Matter: lesson 2: topic 1: exposure triangle Well, it’s been ages since we headed around to Rodd Point in this course and it’s been ages since I’ve posted! We headed around on our scooters and discovered a new water bubbler. Bubblers always intrigue little ones! I wanted to capture the water nicely from the bubbler and I think I achieved that. I’m not sure how ... »

Tutorial!  Can’t wait to see what you’d do!

Tutorial! Can’t wait to see what you’d do!

Moments That Matter: lesson 8: topic 3: the rest The first photo I chose as one of my favorites from the lessons. I’m curious to see what you would do with it. I realize it doesn’t meet the “shows eyes” criteria though! The second photo I’m curious to see what more you would do with it beyond the basic editing I did. I would also like to see how you would do your conv... »

4th Birthday pics

Moments That Matter: lesson 8: topic 2: the basics I uploaded two of the same one so they would show up side by side. I took my daughter’s 4th birthday pictures and used the tips in the editing lesson to fix them up a bit! I am in love with the outcome of her birthday photos and am so grateful to Robyn for everything she has taught me 🙂 It was taken at F 5.6 1/1600 and ISO 200. It was a bit ... »

Moments That Matter: lesson 7: topic 1: storytelling I’m baaaack! Although only for a short time since I only have one lesson left 🙁 Telling a story with you photos is where I sort of struggle a bit. I tend to upload photos to Facebook with no rhyme or reason, I wonder how much influence that has on how many likes you get on a photo (because you know, that’s all that matters 😉 ) Took M... »

Waiting for rain…

Waiting for rain…

Moments That Matter: lesson 7: topic 1: storytelling Firstly let me say this is not to be a ‘sad’ story. My ultimate plan is to take these images again when we get a little bit of water in the dam, and then again when the dam is full, and make that our ‘story’. So it will have a happy ending, just maybe not before the course finishes 🙂 The images are the girls standing in t... »

Lifestyle – cattle work

Lifestyle – cattle work

Moments That Matter: lesson 6: topic 2: think lifestyle We had to get the yards ready for the cattle we are mustering in this afternoon, so I took the camera with us and took a few shots of the girls in our lifestyle 🙂 I love the first image. I have cropped it down, but have also included the original because it shows how little they are compared to the yards. The image of Louise is a candid shot ... »

Creative and angles and cropping

Creative and angles and cropping

Moments That Matter: lesson 5: topic 2: break the rules of composition I played around with breaking a few of the rules and these are the pictures I liked the best, or at least found most interesting 🙂 Clare’s image was taken on the trampoline – I was lying down and she was ‘space walking’ around me. It is taken very much off balance, but I don’t mind it. Quite a lot ... »

In the pursuit of natural smiles…

In the pursuit of natural smiles…

Moments That Matter: lesson 6: topic 1: natural smiles I took these pictures whilst the girls were playing on the swingset and trampoline, hence the odd green pole in the background. Very hard to avoid unfortunately. Clare is tired – the bags under her eyes would attract excess baggage fees at the airport! :), but her smile is a very happy one. The other one is a moment of downtime on the tr... »

Creative depth of Field

Moments That Matter: lesson 5: topic 3: break the rules of exposure Keeping a ‘glass half full’ frame of mind… One of the ‘exciting’ parts of drought-feeding cattle cotton seed (basically buying in trailer loads of cotton seed, putting tractor bucket loads of it onto the back of the ute or truck and then driving out to the paddock and shovelling it out into tubs for t... »

Girls Boots

Girls Boots

Moments That Matter: lesson 1: topic 1: know your camera being a stay at home mum I am always taking photos of my family or taking landscape pictures. After trying out all the modes on my camera I found I use Aperture Priority and landscape mode the most. The photo I have uploaded is of my daughters boots all at their different stages of their life using aperture mode, I wanted to try something di... »
