Along with other areas of Australia, the NSW South Coast was decimated by the bushfires earlier in the year. Over the last few months the NSW South Coast, like many regional communities, has also been significantly impacted by COVID-19. With the recent easing of restrictions permitting travel within NSW, my partner and I decided to book a week down in Culburra Beach with Lola (our dog) and Olive (our dog's best fur-friend). I want to share this trip to showcase the spectacular scenery, local produce, and encourage others to explore locally while still abiding by the current social distancing measures.
In this tutorial, I will cover the equipment required, settings, basic technique, and final tips so you can get out and create your own abstract ocean images. There are multiple applications for panning but the two types of panning shots I want to cover in this tutorial are wave panning shots and ocean/horizon panning shots.
Previously, I have been covering the topic of long exposure photography as a creative process, the equipment required and basic technique. Recently, however, I have taken a hiatus from social media as I felt I was in need of a digital detox to refresh, rejuvenate and reconnect. As a result of this detox, I want to write about social media, namely Instagram, which is my primary social media platform to share my photography. I have had this blog post sitting as a draft for months as it has been on my mind for a while but I just wasn’t sure how to articulate...
What is my blog intended to be? I want it to be informative, interesting and a quick read to escape from the daily grind. Most posts will take around 3 minutes of your busy lives to read and will include insights into me, my photography, travel, photography locations, learning resources, equipment and anything photography related.
