One of the most basic tenets of composition is the Rule of Thirds. Although most people are familiar with this technique it is often forgotten in the haste to take a photo. However you ignore it at your peril as it can make an average snap into something which is has tension and dynamism.

In this meetup we will practice using the Rule of Thirds in a setting full of photographic possibility.

    The photo was taken at around 11 am on the 8th of March on a sunny day which made it impossible to expose the whole scene correct. I sat watching, hoping the Egret would move out of the direct sunlight which it did. I got a few shots and some video of it fishing but then I thought it was going to take off so quickly switched from video to stills and got some shots, this having the best wing position. Taken with a Nikon Z8 and Nikon 600 f4 with the 1.4 teleconverter attached.

    After the Litfest Presentation and announcement of the winners of the photography competition I wanted to head out onto the castle area of the City. Despite the rain I wasn't deterred to take some images - shoot in all weathers! The dark stones of the buildings of the castle make the area look spooky in the day never mind night! I wanted to capture the photo as if it could have been taken in 1850s.

    Waiting for the murmuration in the rain. A full rainbow appeared but I was unable to capture it on my long lense. This was a small section of rainbow and birds in the distance. There were lots of people on the skytower as the sky filled with flapping and light. Nobody spoke. I saved various versions of the moment and some are more edited than others.

    Dearing the eclipse of 2017 my family and I sat in our backyard here in WA to watch the 93 totality with our eclipse glasses. With my homemade solar filter attached to my camera, I took a series of photos of the sun during the eclipse. After processing my sun photos, I was disappointed to see that the moon only showed up as a black hole and not its proper form. I am an avid shooter of Astro photography and have several photos of the moon taken from my backyard and multiple other locations. I

I had a feeling that he was about to cross the road. My hunch was right. He crossed one fence and eventually crossed the other one. I was ready for his movement. I took a series over shots.
