Post processing isn’t currently my strongest point in photography. I’m not bad at photoshop, it’s just that i’ve never really experimented outside of my comfort zone, which while does get slightly bigger every now and again isn’t at the level I’d like it to be at. So I was absolutely delighted when I came across … Read more

Baby Phillipa

Last Friday, I got up the nerve to ask my sister to ask her mate if I could take pictures of her newborn baby (just at some stage, not immediately) . My sister called me on Friday night to say that MA and Marsh were free on Saturday morning and that I could head around then … Read more

Well, I’ve been quite into my photography for about a year now. 2009 was quite a step for me. I brought my first dslr, 2 lenses, tripod and external flash. I met some fantastic people on NZFM, both online and at meetups, which for me is quite a challenge as i’m horribly shy in new … Read more

Project 365 – Day One

September 6th, 2009 | Posted by Andie in Photography - (1 Comments)

So I’ve decided to give 365 days a go, however due to the fact that even though I am gorgeous, I can’t think of 365 different pictures to take of me, I am going to do Project 365, which is taking a picture a day for a year. I know that it’s probably more convienient … Read more

Mt Ruapehu

I went to Madi Gras in Ohakune a few weeks ago. It was the first time I had been to such an event and had a wicked time. I didn’t dress up tho, as I didn’t quite realise this was a requirement, which in NZ it isn’t really. But if I head down that way … Read more

Went to a meetup last Saturday with some other Auckland photographer who use flickr. It was quite good, we went for a walk around Auckland CBD with our cameras and took some shots. For me it was great to be able to go and talk to others who are interested in photography. I’m also going … Read more

Light Tent

So I’ve brought my camera.. and thats great! I’ve been having a bit of fun now playing around with different things, such as a homebuilt light tent (based off http://digital-photography-school.com/how-to-make-a-inexpensive-light-tent) Backgrounds a bit to grey tho (shadows), I didn’t use a curved sheet of paper so I think that might be causing it. Played around … Read more

WooHoo! I got a Canon 450D last Friday. Lens: EF-S 17-85 f/4.0-5.6 IS USM. I’m loving it. I did a lot of research into what I wanted and am happy with my final choice. It’s my first DSLR that I’ve owned. I’ve been playing on a Nikon D50 for about 6 months but I had … Read more
