Sagacity

My 2012 Photojourney

Here is a selection of my Photojourney for 2012. It was a year of learning, up until this year I never had worked out what kind of photography I loved, I now have discovered Landscape and what I call HDR Plus – The music is from around 1995 when I was in a band called ‘Sagacity’, I wrote the music and played guitar on the track, My cousin Darrin wrote and sang lyrics, his brother Matt played Bass and and another cousin, Brad played drums… a bit of a family affair! It was a lot of fun so I thought I would share it along with my photojourney for 2012… enjoy!

Instagram can sell your photo’s

Is it time to Instapanic?

It seems that Instagram has overtaken the headlines today, the company released new T&C’s (Terms and Conditions) that allows it to sell users images and information to advertisers without re-imbursing or compensating the original owner. Apparently this will take effect from the 16th January 2013 and I am not sure if it cause for panic just yet… thousands of users have been deleting their accounts and there is a flurry of negative comments across the internet in regards to the move by Instagram, my guess is that the message will be received loud and clear and the T&C’s may end up being revised or changed. But is it time to panic? I don’t think so… the change is 3 weeks away and this will give you time to consider your options, the risk of your images being used online is always present, as soon as you upload it you’re taking a risk… I wonder how many Instagram users have used an image without consent, or worse still, copied music or software? At least Instagram are asking for your permission. I am not sure of my stand on this one, and wasn’t getting a great benefit out of it anyway, so for me I may just close my account… I am interested in your feedback and thoughts so leave a comment if you’re up for it…

Lifes a Beach…

Enjoying a short stroll to the beach

I am currently away with my family on the Gold Coast, I have been getting up each morning for sunrise and it has been great to roll out of bed and stroll across the road to the beach. Back home I am an hours drive away from the beach so a bit more planning and thought has to go into my shoots… I am yet to get the ‘cracker’ of a sunrise I am after… Hopefully it will turn up before I have to head home…

It is good to see some of you have registered for the 21st October Photowalk at Long Reef. It is a great location and if you’re into photography I know you’re going to love this spot! If you haven’t registered yet you can do so on FACEBOOK or GOOGLE+ (click on your favourite)

the daily pic – the Seagulls

The beach comes to life early here, a lot of people are out for their morning ritual as the seagulls hold an early morning meeting to discuss their chip snatching strategies for today… enjoy!

How do you spell Bier?

Here is a shot from the Bavarian Bier Cafe at Broadbeach on the Gold Coast. I couldn’t resist but run back to my room to grab the camera. I love the way they use the glasses hanging over the bar to create a chandelier and the mural on the wall above was kind of cool too! I also like the way the HDR processing has created movement on everyone in the bar give you the sense of seeing it happening!

Golden hour on the Gold Coast

I took this picture at sunset from my balcony. I was staying at Broadbeach at Peppers Resort on the 31st Floor. I just love the colours in this picture, the HDR processing really brings a cityscape to life for me. I have just had this image printed 30″ x 20″ and it looks awesome. I will be framing it this weekend and my intention is to put together a quick insight/tutorial on how to frame your own pictures. It is actually easier than it looks, although this will be the largest print I have ever personally framed!
