  • I would like to thank the wonderful staff of @nationallibraryaus for kindly inviting me to an After Hours Tour on Tuesday. We were treated to an awesome guided tour of Cook and the Pacific Exhibition where we learnt about many of the artefacts on display, including hand written Journals by Captain James Cook himself. At school, it was mandatory that we learnt about Captain James Cook and his discovery of Australia, but we never had an opportunity to get so close to actual items from the voyage. At school, it bored me out of my brain , but as an adult I found it absolutely fascinating. I know I will be going back and spending more time looking through this amazing exhibit. The Cook and the Pacific Exhibition is on until the 10th of February 2019, 10am-5pm and it’s absolutely free to enter. On top of the guided tour, we were also treated to a viewing of Beauty Rich and Rare. It is a huge Light and Sound presentation on 5 huge screens narrating how Sir Joseph Banks and his team of botanists and scientists felt when they encountered the unique Flora and Fauna of Australia for the very first time. I’m hoping to be able to go back and watch this presentation again as i found it really interesting to learn about how they mapped the local area and also create the many sketches of the plants and wildlife they encountered along the way. Beauty Rich and Rare is also on until 10th February 2019, 10am-5pm and it is also free to enter. 👏👏👏👏 #pocket_family_member #kings_insects_member #efe_nature_or_nothing_member #macro_globe_member #nationallibraryofaustralia #thiscanberranlife #sofranksocial #igerscanberra #igersaustraliaofficial #wow_australia2018 #igerscanberra #pocket_nights #nature_or_nothing #efe_nature_or_nothing #mcsquared_daily #efe_snapshots_daily #great_captures_nature #capitaltoad

  • Here is another image from the Nara Candle Festival. This image actually surprised me quite a lot. At the time, the lighting effects in the trees and surrounding bushes, changed colour about every 10 seconds and at the time, my shutter speed was set at 25 seconds. So while my shutter was open, the landscape changed colour twice, which made each of the images a bit murky. But, in the Panoramic image above, I was using the exact same settings, but once the images were merged together, the colour of the surrounding landscape became a lot more stable. So, while looking at this image, I noticed that I had taken 8 images in the exact same position and individually, they all looked unappealing and difficult to process to a nice result. Out of curiosity, I selected 8 images and then selected the option to merge them all together as a HDR just to see what would happen. Seeing as they were all a different colour from each other and none of them were particularly good, I thought the end result would be pretty ugly. You never know unless you give it a try. Surprisingly, the colours of the end result, were stabilised considerably and it suddenly became easy to process into ( I think ) a good result. So it goes to show, when it comes to photography, you should ALWAYS experiment, even if you think the end result will be ugly, because sometimes, you might actually produce something you never expected. 😮 #pocket_family_member #kings_insects_member #efe_nature_or_nothing_member #macro_globe_member #thiscanberranlife #sofranksocial #igerscanberra #igersaustraliaofficial #wow_australia2018 #igerscanberra #pocket_nights #nature_or_nothing #efe_nature_or_nothing #mcsquared_daily #efe_snapshots_daily #great_captures_nature #capitaltoad

  • I would like to thank @teds_cameras and @canonaustralia for a great evening last night, with wonderful people on top of Mount Ainslie overlooking Canberra at sunset. It was a awesome opportunity to get some great advice on how to improve your Sunset photography and also, to get your hands on the new Canon EOS-R Camera and have some fun. Although I was able to give it a try if I wanted to, I decided not to try the new camera as it is an amazing camera that I will never be able to afford. To me, it’s a little bit like being a huge fan of a Ferrari and taking one for a test drive, only to find it is the absolute perfect car for you, yet you will never, ever be able to buy one. So I just stuck to my Canon 80D and my GoPro 7 Black. This time lapse was created using my GoPro, consisting of 6,305 images. I was hoping to post this much earlier in the day, but I had a lot of trouble creating it because of old software that did not have enough dedicated memory to be able to make it. After 5-6 hours of swearing a cursing, I finally figured out how to condense a 3 minute time lapse down to a file lasting less than the 1 minute limit on Instagram. 😉 #pocket_family_member #kings_insects_member #efe_nature_or_nothing_member #macro_globe_member #thiscanberranlife #sofranksocial #igerscanberra #igersaustraliaofficial #gopro #goprohero7 #capitaltoad
