An incredible night of Macro and Close-up photography with Roy Killen.
Roy went all the way from the basic to the specialized gear, giving us an incredibly in depth explanation and demonstration of the different characteristics each lens and attachment has, allowing us all to ask questions and get a better understanding of the subject. But even further, his incredible images and great advice will for sure help our members when attempting to get those stories that can’t be normally seen by the human eye.
All the way from Denmark we got one of the best Landscape photographers of the moment, not only showing us incredible images of Nordic landscapes, but even better, letting us all in his workflow and the thinking process behind his images.
And to finish it all in a high note by showing us some of his post processing techniques
Monday 9/03 – Matt: Super moody supermoon. I ran an informal get together with Norths Photographic to shoot the supermoon. The cloud forecast looked great a week out, but as it neared things started to look worse. Thankfully on the night the conditions improved and we got almost 30 minutes of impacted visibility. I actually prefer a bit of cloud for moonrise; while it’s far more likely you won’t get the shot, if you do manage to get a gap it adds so much character to the images.
Great night of critique and learning with Delly Carr.
Feedback: Delly has specialised in various sports, attending 9 Olympic Games to photograph Aussie athletes, attending pre-games camps etc, and obviously getting to know the athletes. Very enthusiastic about sports. And knew his equipment and the techniques etc to get good shots. His specialties include the swim team, rowing, fencing, etc. His knowledge of sports photography certainly came through in his comments, though he acknowledged his inexperience at doing such judgings. Delly gave sympathetic and positive comments about all images, stressing that he looks for the peak of the action to be captured.
