Blue Lotus Water Garden

The first day of autumn saw 16 club members and families head out to the Blue Lotus Water Garden, Yarra Junction.

It has been about nine years since we have been out to the Farm as a Club and those of us who had visited it before noticed a big change with several new areas.

The weather was kind to us, heating up later in the day. Lots of photos were taken of lotuses and water lilies as well as other plants; also looking for birds in the wetland area. All the attendees seem to enjoy the day - well worth the 1½-hour drive!

The Blue Lotus Water Garden is found at 2628 Warburton HWY, Yarra Junction, Victoria 3797, Australia. OPEN December 26 - April 13.

 

Colour Management

At our meeting last night we were joined by Michael from Kayell who took us through the tech-strong topic of Colour Management, Colour Profiles, and the Printing Process.

Not being a big self-printer I took a lot away from Michael's talk and may just think more about printing my own images now. We probably should see it as part of our process in creating our works in camera, to computer, and then to final output on print media.

Apologies, the notes are a little all over the shop; but hopefully you'll understand what I'm saying.

Time Lapse Photography

A few notes from last night's meeting on Time Lapse Photography.

Time lapse photography is a way of compressing time. The amount of compression depends largely on the interval between images and in moving time lapse videos, the frame rate we choose to present the images.

Time lapse is largely used to show changes and movement over time. We might find it used for the following:

  • Capturing landscapes/cloudscapes
  • The growth of plants and opening of flowers
  • Progression of construction projects (massive buildings or Lego builds)
  • Movement studies and animal behaviour
  • Astrophotography
  • As cinematic b-roll, extra footage that may appear between shots to imply the passage of time between scenes or to compress a series of events
