Now that’s the shot! Lovely, Nicki. Great capture, really nice composition. I love the warm sun breaking through the trees really setting the leaves on fire!.

Just beautiful. Love the sunlight through the trees lighting up the fence and splashes of light on the leaves in the foreground. The path just invites me to walk through the woods.

This is a stunning shot – the colours almost allow you to feel the warmth of the Autumn sun. Great composition and colours too. I love a good Autumn walk and this is very inviting.

This is awesome. I prefer this one because the focus is sharp on the stem. Plus it’s a bit brighter in the top. Love it!!

Lovely Julia – nice focus, the seed sits up nicely and great water drops.

Thanks everyone. Fiona, they’re basically like big dandelion seeds, much easier to photograph because of their size.

WOW simply stunning – the Owl looks like it could fly right out of the photo.

Great capture, Derek. Perfect timing and nice detail. I would love to see a barn owl in the wild.

Wow, amazing action shot!! So clear and I love that the owl is looking straight at you.

This is a lovely portrait Nicki. I like the pose, the expression, the DoF; in fact, everything about it.

Great portrait. Everything is excellent, love the colours with the red with the green background behind but it’s the eye is on a power point drawing you in that stand out the most for me. Well done

A brilliant portrait, Nicki. I love the colours and how you’ve composed the shot.

I really like this Phil the colours and light are very autumnal, good leading line with the fence.

“This is beautiful! The warm tones are so so nice. And the composition is fantastic, It’s almost like the image is cut into sections, the leading lines are so striking.

One of those images that stands out in the thumbnails in the gallery. Lovely warm tones. The leading lines are great. And the people in the distance make me want to run up and join their conversation.

Love the colours in this Phil.

Wow and Wow again you’ve probably guessed I just love everything about it, I would definitely hang it on the wall. Great colours, reflections and composition.

This is so beautiful Phil!! The colours in the sky and and reflected in the water are stunning.

Beautifully composed Randy. I love the textures in the foreground which I liken to moving water. The light is great. This would look fantastic framed.

Fabulous Randy! Very moody and quite striking. The foreground is a bit like sand too.

I love this! very dramatic. I like how you have captured the light coming through the clouds that seem to be pointing towards the trees.

Very creative! It gives the room a space-age look!! I love how you have the light in really distinct patterns, that must have been difficult to do..

Oh well done for going back and having another go (and not turning the touch light on)! hahah This is awesome. With using a single colour like this you can get more creative and change the hue afterwards or even stack multiple versions on top of each other (each with a different colour) and then erase back through the layers to create a rainbow version)! Well done again and great perseverance 🙂

Such a clever and creative idea, Bev. Really effective and well executed. With such a long exposure it must be really hard not to blow out parts of the image. You’ve controlled that so well. Nailed it!

 

Congratulations to everyone who featured in the Top 10 this month. Thank you to all of our students who have uploaded images this past month and for all of those who have taken the time to comment and rate their fellow students work.

3 Ways to Use Natural Light

Sunlight can be discussed using a few different photography terms and approaches. There are normally 4 considerations photographers look at when using natural light in their photos - Direction, Colour, Intensity and Quality.

1. Direction

In which direction is the light falling? Is the direction of the light where you need it to be? While it’s very hard to change the direction of natural light unless you’re using reflectors you may have to move your subject into the path of the light to get the right finish.

There are 3 main directions that you can use natural light in a photo;

How to Be a Nature Photographer

Going from a beginner nature photographer to making money from your camera you need dedication. It requires time and a never-ending passion to get outdoors with your cameras and practise new techniques. Get outdoors early and return when the sun sets.

Get familiar with your local woodlands and read nature books to learn about wildlife, birding and foliage. This will help you understand what you are shooting and when is the best time of year to find these subjects.

The other challenge when shooting through glass is the tinting. Unfortunately, architects and designers didn’t think about us photographers when creating these skyscrapers.

Their windows are invariably tinted in some way to help with heating.

This means that some of your photos may have a green/grey tint to them.

It’s not the biggest issue as you can rebalance this tint in editing with the ‘tint’ slider for example.
