Architectural photography can be a great way of exploring and documenting a city, whether it's your home or on holiday.

An architectural photographer makes pictures, not takes pictures.

In this session, we will be covering how to better understand Architecture photography and we'll be looking at ways to take some impressive shots and the camera settings to use.

Street art is a unique and colorful art form and can be found in all kinds of nooks and crannies in cities all over the world.

    This pic was taken during a Geelong Photography Group session aimed at capturing water droplets. It was taken on a Nikon D850 camera with a 300mm lens at 1/60 sec, f5.6, ISO 100. The view was set to 24x24 square format because I enjoy that format for flower images.The photo was taken at 9.33 am. For flower photos I like to climb right into the plant hence darkening the background in camera so that any post needed will only be fine tuning. This technique can be used at almost any time and lig

    This was the day of famous Northern Lights visible in most of the North America. Stubs Stewart is the most ideal dark area for star gazing so I reached there around 11pm. As expected, it was full of enthusiasts. The lights were predicted to be at peak between 10pm - 2am. Around 2pm, when we though the "show was over", the lights started getting incredibly bright, and that is when this picture was taken. Interestingly, the lights were bright in some regions and other regions were faded enough to

    Last February, I left Sydney with my friends at 6pm to capture the first Milky Way view of 2024. I was very anxious because I saw a lot of clouds on the way, but I was really happy to see clear skies as I passed Newcastle. When we arrived at the lighthouse, fortunately we were the only ones in the group, so we were able to take photos without any disturbance. The lighthouse light, which was not too bright, was very helpful in filming.

I went home and grabbed my camera and equipment and went to Vancouver Lake not sure if I could capture anything. I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to capture photos. This is just one of many pleasant surprises from that evening, enjoy.
