Jamestown Air Show 2012

Posted: 16th October 2012 by Andrew in General

On Sunday 14th October Mitch and I drove across to Jamestown in South Oz for their annual Airshow and fly-in.
This was probably the best organised and run country event I’ve been to. Huge crowd yet quick entry and plenty of room alongside the runway for perfect viewing.
The show started on time and the action didnt stop. There were no breaks just a solid six hours of air show.

Project 365 2011 – a photo a day

Posted: 4th January 2012 by Andrew in General

For 2011 I took on the challenge of shooting a new photo every day.

Has been great for really learning the limits of me and my gear (mainly me!).
Has tought me a lot about what works and how to make it work.
Have seen a whole lot more of this town and made lots of discoveries.
Have learned a lot about lightroom and post processing.
I hope Im a far better photographer because of this project.

Really really glad Ive done it but wont do it again any time soon! Maybe if I travelled more often. It should be easier in a big city but I doubt you’d move around enough to stay inspired.

Would highly recommend it to anyone starting out, anyone lacking inspiration or an experienced tog that has become jaded.

Any comments on the change from a white background to a black background?

Looks better/worse?
Easier/harder to read?

cheers
