Retro Beach Babes   Leave a comment

I had the opportunity to photograph the Gasolina Pin-Up Girls on the weekend – check out there facebook page for more about them.

We had a lot of fun they are great to work with and being on the Sunny Gold Coast what would be better then a Beach shoot.

We turned one into a “Merry Christmas” Card for their website

We also took the opportunity while they were still in swimsuits to get some waterfall shots.

These shots were all taken with a Canon 6D and 100mm Macro lens, showing what a great portrait lens it is as well.

We will definitely be catching up with the Gasolina Girls again soon for some more shoots.

Cheers Dave

Bugs in Paradise !   1 comment

I spent the last few days out at Mount Barney staying at the lakeside cottage at Barney Creek Vineyard Cottages

It was a few days in paradise – lots of things to see and do – with Macro being my favourite Photography currently – thought I would start with some of the bugs I got there.

Macro – spiders and flys on the verandah   1 comment

Early last Sunday morning, I went for a walk in the garden and surrounding yard and was not finding much at all to photograph – so walking back to come inside along the verandah, on the post at the top of the stairs I see a little spider and while I am photographing him – a fly lands as well.

First up two photos of Jumping Spiders with a little flying any as prey.

Macro at Lake Maroon   1 comment

Last weekend, I spent Friday/Saturday night – with a great bunch (19 in total) of fellow photographers, sharing a house at Lake Maroon in Queensland.

We did a variety of different photography topics from sunrises ( too much cloud for sunsets), star trails, Fire Twirling, Birding, Macro etc.

With the first post of hopefully a series ( if I am not to lazy/busy) to cover the two days of constant photograph fun, I will start with the Macro shots I got on the Saturday afternoon.

Macro at the Farm   Leave a comment

I went out to my cousins farm today to help with a few odd jobs.

I took the opportunity to get the macro lens out for a play.

Skye (the Cat)   Leave a comment

We spend a bit of time at our close friends Ivan and Jules (of Jas Photography ) and I always look forward to seeing their beautiful cat Skye.

Skye is always willing to pose for a photo or too, in her Cat way ( which equates to total indifference).

Then we get the “Stretch” as I would rather be asleep.

Canon 7D and 60mm Macro lens (only because it was lready on the camera)

Cheers Dave
