Started this discussion. Last reply by Nadia de Lange Mar 22, 2016. 1 Reply

I am sometimes just astounded by the ridiculously awesome dynamic range of the D750... What is dynamic range? It is your camera's ability to record details in both the highlights and the shadows. Why…Continue

Alot of the time I see photographers claim they are fine art photographers and I fail to see their reasoning behind this claim. They take a badly exposed image with poor technique, turn it into a…Continue

Couple shoot Newtown.

Posted on June 13, 2011 at 10:10 4 Comments

Hi guys, 


had a couple shoot this weekend and in my opinion it is some of the better work I have shot in a long while. The couple as you can see is gorgeous and photographing a fellow photographer and friend did me the world of good. I will be posting some work in my Strobist Junky group this week, so if you are interested in learning about how I shot the images and how I did the lighting (strobist), please join my…


Rietvlei Dam Landscape session.

Posted on May 14, 2011 at 16:08 0 Comments

Danie had a landscape class this morning at Rietvlei Dam and I tagged along. Had a lovely morning with everyone there and had some very good light. A few of my favourite shots...


I quite like the double sunflare I got in this one.


Tried to get a little bit more of the grass in the forefront.

Thanks man.  Dit gaan goed net vrek besig by die werk.  Ons skuif die registrasie kantoor van Perth na Bermuda, en dis nog vir jou 'n kakhuis vol werk.  Ek kan dit nie anders sê nie.  Ek het nog nie eers met Danie gepraat die jaar nie, ek is net by die werk tot wie weet watter tyd.  Ons moet weer gaan foto's neem.  Dankie vir die inligting ek sal eerder jou glo wat met hom neem as die ander ouens.  Groete

Hi Trompie,

Hoe vind jy die Sigma 10-20mm F3.5 lense.  Ek het reviews gelees waar die mense sê die kwaliteit van kleure is nie so skerp soos die F4-F5.6 lense nie.  Ek wil vir my 'n 10-22mm lense koop maar is nie seker watter een nie. Kyk rond en lees al die reviews, en die F3.5 een was nie van die beste nie.  Maar dis beter om van 'n ou soos jy te hoor wat dit gebruik.
