This is something I have been wanting to do for some time. Lets call it a little experiment. I took a similar shot firstly on my I-phone, as is, then on my camera, as is, and finally the camera version edited in Lightroom to compare the results.
I was born in Darwin. My family lost our home and all our possessions in Cyclone Tracey and were forced to leave. In more recent times, I have travelled there every year for the Supercars at Hidden Valley. They are held in winter months. The Dry season when the weather is considered perfect. Gorgeous sunshine days, warm temperatures, little rain and great for exploring the vast outback surrounds of Darwin such as Katherine, Litchfield and of course, Kakadu National Park.
If you’re anything like me, (most are not actually), when I think of Japan and Tokyo, I think of Sushi. I imagined Tokyo to be a busy city with sushi bars on every corner, but didn’t really have much expectation past that. To say the city had lots of people is an understatement, and no surprise but I found there was way more to this place that Sushi bars and Geisha girls! It’s somewhere I have been wanting to visit for quite some time but when I arrived, was pretty overwhelmed with the size of the city and trying to work out what exactly I should do, so here’s my Top Tips to finding the best of Tokyo in a short space of time!
Noumea – capital of New Caledonia. It’s about a 2 hour flight out of Brisbane, east and with a similar climate to South East Queensland, the September holidays are the perfect time to visit. Noumea is the capital of New Caledonia’s main island and located in the south of the island on a deep water harbour.
At the start of 2016, I made a commitment to myself that I was going to put everything into my photography for one year and see where it led me. Up until this point, I had been playing around, having fun but was at the stage where I pretty much had all the camera equipment I really required, so wanted to get out and travel and shoot as much as I could – around our own business and family commitments.
