My First WordPress Story

WordPress has released Stories, and its about time. Instagram and Facebook have had this feature available for some time. Learning how to get the most out of the stories is the next challenge and hopefully I will be able to share more in the future.

Would love to know your thoughts on my story and others, until next time happy shooting

The Sunday Snap 34

I’ve been working on tidying up my photo library and started with a new external SSD hard drive. Not wanting to make the same mistakes again I have spent considerable time plotting (watching Youtube) ways to make it work the best and I have come up with a few questions that need to be answered before a solution is found.

  1. Do I use one library for all of the photos or keep the current method of a library per year?
  2. How are the photos organised, by year, by event, by file name etc.
  3. Do I stick with Capture One Pro or is there better editing software available.
  4. Are all the photos titled Family put into one folder so they can be easily found when needed?

These has to be a better way of cataloguing your photos and I’m yet it but the advantage of going through your photo library is finding these little gems, distractions they may but they just reaffirm the photo library needed to be sorted out.

I don’t think has been posted/ published anywhere before and I wanted to share it with you. I took this photo on a island, 9 hours by boat off the coast of Broome, Western Australia. Its hot and humid but remember, your not the top of the food chain in the water, the Saltwater Crocs are, not to mention the sharks.

Until next time, happy shooting.

First Sunset of 2021

The first sunset of 2021 was an absolute killer. The sky was filled full of drama and the sun just lit the sky up and it just kept getting better and better. Couldn’t stop taking photos

Until next time, happy shooting

The Sunday Snap 24

Always seem to stumble across a piece of Australian history when we’re out wandering through the bush, and I never seem to have my camera at the ready and revert back to using the phone to take a few shots. I think it all comes down to the ability to do a quick edit without having an internet connection to show your mates.

Abandoned

Stumbled across a few old buildings from a sawmill that are no longer in use, the main sawmill building is pretty uninteresting and bland but the building in these two photos has a lot more character, and even though I wasn’t wearing appropiate footwear I was still drawn inside to look around.

Abandoned

For those of you who are under a lock down, please keep smiling as the lock down and self isolation will eventually come to an end and hopefully life will resume some sort of normality.

For those who celebrate it, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,

Until next time, Happy Shooting

The Sunday Snap 23

Walking through the bush with a good friend late yesterday afternoon had both of us looking at the way light fell through the trees and cast shadows across the path. We eventually found a spot that fitted our needs to capture the falling light and hopefully some leading lines to draw the eye down the path.

Until next time happy shooting

The Sunday Snap 13

It’s been quite some time I’ve participated in the 52 week Smartphone challenge due to world events. Fortunately today was an opportunity to get out with family to see some sights, support local businesses and take some photographs.


The Ferris Wheel in Freemantle screams out to be photographed, plenty of leading lines and the red gondolas are contrasted nicely against the blue sky. 

Photographed using a Samsung Note 10 and processed using snapped.

Until next time, stay safe and happy shooting

The Sunday Snap 11

As I go about my day, thoughts of the week’s theme float around in my mind everywhere I go and interrupt everything I do. Constantly on the lookout for subjects to photograph that meet the theme and then I spend time thinking about how to compose the shot.

After spending considerable time photographing the bamboo, not just with the smartphone but also the film camera, I was eager to process the shots. The B&W roll is not yet finished but I wanted to sit down and do a quick edit before leaving because I may need to go back and reshoot the scene.

It was difficult to know where to focus my efforts because there are so many names etched into the bamboo and eventually settling on the one bamboo pole that was untouched.
