Hello and welcome to our first newsletter. Firstly I’d like to apologise for its
delay, with a move to New South Wales’
Central Coast, the birth of our second child (in the front seat of the car!)
and the opening of our first gallery, things have been a little hectic of late.
I hope you enjoy the newsletter which will keep you informed of new images, latest news
and tips to help you along with your photography.
Opening of our Central Coast Gallery.
We opened our first gallery on the 11th Feb this year. Situated on the Central Coast at
Wyoming just north of Gosford.
470 Pacific Hwy,
We have enhanced our website to include a location search facility. This will make it easier to find images from many of your favourite places.
We now have four free windows screensavers
available for download from our site. Please feel free to download
and install one or all on your computer. They are also free to email to friends and family.
The Blue Mountains
My latest on location shoot has been in the Blue Mountains
. For anyone who has visited the
Blue Mountains, they will know of their unique beauty, a must for any photographer.
The blue mountains are situated one hour west of Sydney and consist of a spectacular array of canyons,
valleys, caves, rivers, waterfalls and a huge variety of native flora and fauna.
The regions largest town Katoomba, stands at an elevation of approx 1000m and therefore enjoys a
cooler climate than neighbouring Sydney, a great place to escape the summer heat.
For myself the main locations for this shoot were the famous ‘Three Sisters’ rock
formation and the many waterfalls of the area. Here are a selection of pictures now available for
purchase from our website and gallery.
Composition - Rule of thirds
A simple but very effective way of improving the composition of your photographs is to
follow the ‘rule of thirds’. Placing important elements of your photographs at
the intersection of an imaginary ‘naughts and crosses’ grid will give your pictures a
greater compositional quality.
But just remember, all rules are there to be broken.
