Artography

February 6, 2014

As far as I'm concerned, "Artography" is a Photographic technique and form of rastering where no filters have been used and only light frequencies ( spectrum)  visible to the  human eye altered. This range allows interior decorators to use a wider variety of styles to frame the photographs/art to fit in with the taste fluctuations of clients. Subtle colours allow for larger colour variety when selecting boards and frame types. Colour ranges (within the photos) can also be altered for different clients. It allows for a modern tweak to old style architecture and old /classic /colonial style framing. The wildlife range thus now also allows nature to be included into a more colourful decoration. (Not the natural even earthy colours of the natural spectrum.) The style also allows old monuments or other architecture to truly reflect or express the inner emotions...something always difficult to express to others in words.

The same style is preferred by some on all pets including horses for a different retro look beyond the norm.

Photographing elephants in Kruger Park

October 6, 2013

On my first day of my photographic workshop / safari in The Kruger National park I took a casual drive to get my mind in one with the bush. I spotted a heard of elephant on the opposite side of the Sable dam and locked or embedded that in  my mind’s eye  as it was breathtaking to  view the elephants from such a low vantage  point right in front of me across a dam but also in full view of the camera or the telephoto lenses.  A few days later at my   photographic seminars in the Kruger  Natio...

The Guinea fowl groom- Kruger Photographic workshop

September 18, 2013


Right next to the road and close to a herd of elephant I saw a group of guinea fowl grooming in front of me and their relaxed manner was due to the cool temperatures  and overcast conditions that were fast disappearing as the sun was starting to break  through the clouds after light rain the morning. I sat and observed them for a while and noticed a certain behaviour that I could never capture before. Not that I'm a specialist on fowl but it intrigued me. Every  now and then one individual wo...

Mopani's In the Kruger Park

September 10, 2013

Photographing Mopani trees in the Kruger Park.


The coloured Mopani’s are without a doubt one of the most beautiful backgrounds one get  during winter with the wildlife as main subject matter in The Kruger National Park. Or if you are lucky and work hard enough on their own as they are definitely beautiful enough to compare with the mega predators on photos or landscapes elsewhere.

To me the most beautiful sight throughout my July 2013  trip was the wonderful fall colours the Mopani tre...

Shutterspeed

July 29, 2013


Shutter Speed

Shutter speed is a measurement of the time the shutter is open, shown in seconds or fractions of a second: 1 s, 1/2 s, 1/4 s … 1/250 s, 1/ 500 s, etc. The faster the shutter speed, the shorter the time the image sensor is exposed to light; the slower the shutter speed, the longer the time the image sensor is exposed to light.

If you are photographing a subject that is in motion, you will get different effects at different shutter speeds. Fast ...

Kruger National Park Photo session - March 2013

May 13, 2013
I spend some time at a low water bridge north of Letaba camp watching and photographing birds catch fish and the interaction between them. What was interesting and pretty to watch was that each bird has his own little fishing spot just like fishermen around a dam or river would do. They each have selected habitat or fishing spots.


The small black lily-trotter, the smallest bird of the lot was going for the smallest fish in the shallowest piece of the flow or he was last in the food chain of sm...
