discovering the beauty of the world through photography
I just want to congratulate all members, and especially Ian, for putting together "Tasmania - a Visual Journey".
I have just returned home after the pleasure of spending 2 weeks in Tassie, where I met Mark and Claire Walsh (Tinnieopener and ClaireBear), David Murphy, Garth Smith, Brett Chatwin, Mel Sinclair, Robin Young and a number of other fantastic photographers. Mark and Claire organised the event ("Fagus Week 2013") for RedBubble photographers to come and…Continue
Has anyone noticed that some of your keywords and and writ are now getting monetized on Landscape photographer online? They get underlined and when you click on them they take you to an ad? Is this intentional, Ian?
I noticed that on the front cover of Australian Photography + Digital magazine (Jan issue) there is a very beautiful image taken by our fellow LSPoL photographer Ricardo Da Cunha. The shot is of "The Pinnacles" in overcast conditions making a great contrast to the unearthly yellow land formations of The Pinnacles of Western Australia.
Beautiful work Ricardo.... again! …Continue
I really love Landscape photographer on line. One reason I originally joined (besides a large Aussie community) is the quality of the images. But I must say there are two things that are bothering me a bit if OK to voice, and I don't mean to offend. I am on flickr like many of you, but I do sometimes get frustrated to the fact that people will post anything without thought of quality. Now, there is no reasonable scale to gauge quality because art is an open field. However, I wish that LPO…Continue
Any fellow togs out there who would be keen on a protective cover for their DSLR's to protect against sea mist and sand from the wind? Completely waterproof and comes with a zipper to allow for longer lenses and cords to tighten at the bottom for a tight fit. Only $30 delivered. Please email me on email@example.com if you're in as there's not a great deal out there like this :-)
I see mother nature is causing problems down there. Hoping that all of you, and your families, are safe and unharmed.
I just wanted to say that it is great to be part of your community and to be able to share my efforts with so many great photographers. I am Australian but live in the UK. I spend a lot of time back in Australia and in the US state of Maine so most of my landscapes will feature those two locations. I have put up a few recent images taken in Australia in December 2012 and a few from Summer 2012 in Maine. I'd really welcome feedback and comments as I am very keen to…Continue

Nick Rains alerted me to Samara - a limited release film that started its run in Melbourne today.
I can guarantee that there isn't a photographer around who could not be spellbound by the cinematography and images used. I'd recommend to everyone they make the time to catch it.
The film is a series of images filmed in 70mm with a music backing (no dialogue). It is stunningly beautiful, confronting and depressing - all at the same time.
The message behind the images is…Continue

Members with trading names should be aware the law has recently changed. I should say I'm not a lawyer and the following is only my (possibly incorrect) understanding of the new situation.
Previously you could just have a trading name and didn't necessarily have to register a business name. What was a state registration system has been scrapped in favour of national registration controlled by (you guessed it) ASIC (the government watchdog that just keeps on giving - providing it…Continue

Well it's probably a little bit early to start reflecting on my photography in 2012, but I am going to do it anyway. I sat down with a mate at lunch time today to try to plan a photography outing...and it was a little difficult as we are both quite busy. I'll try to get out once or twice in the next few weeks if I can. It's funny because during my professional life (as a pharmacist) we are always taught to reflect on our practice. I have just finished a post-graduate diploma in clinical…Continue

Wondering what happened to the ranking gizmo, not that important but it is a fun thing. I'm wondering if it went berserk, as I showed up @ #5 when I had no activity for several days. Ian?

I have just joined this great community of photographers and I am looking forward to gaining inspiration from others who share the same passion.
I would love a bit of technical advice as a newcomer. How do people prepare their images for upload to the site? My first 2 posts appear really flat and lacking the more vibrant colour of the original files.By the way, both are from a trip I have just returned from in outback NSW - amazing to see a land transformed by rain.
Hi I've just joined this great (and much needed) community of like minded souls and so I just wanted to quickly introduce myself. I'm a Portuguese born landscape photographer who now resides in Australia on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. I like to learn from other photographers as well as contributing where I can. I'm currently beginning a change in style to a more minimalist approach and focusing on best representing the interaction between light and the landscape. On my page you…Continue
Asked this question over at Facebook. I was interested in the responses of people who don't know the technical aspects of photography as well as we do, but now I would like to get your responses...
why do people like overcooked HDR images? It really has me confused...
we are up to 26 members (quite a few less than last year at this stage).
I appreciate that there are lots of opinions and ideas and i very much appreciate the offerings to date.
In an effort to hone these ideas - i have prepared a survey
I need you to complete it
you can find it here
Please complete it in the next couple…Continue
All too often I see images that lack contrast & because digital files are a flat file digital images need contrast. It's very easy one of the first things I do to an image is pull up a levels adjustment layer. I pin the High lights & Shadows then play round with the middle slider for the mid tones. Just a handy tip this can be the difference between a good image & an amazing image.
I have produced a book of my photographs featuring Tasmania and other favorite places.
The book is dedicated to all my family, friends and colleagues for their extraordinary support during my recent health issues.
All monies from the sale of this book will be donated to the ANZCA Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine Foundation to help fund medical research in these important areas.
Please enjoy by…
It is always a good idea to have a tried & proven and established system in place to perform any repetitive task, this includes lots & lots of different things and more importantly the issue of post processing your images.
The first thing that I do once I have uploaded my original files to the computer and renamed them per my “File Naming…Continue
