5th Daily Deviation and Interviews

Thu Mar 6, 2014, 6:01 PM
Hello all :wave:

After basically pulling an all nighter last night taking images and conducting a night sky photography workshop, I woke up at lunchtime today to discover a very pleasant surprise.  I have been awarded my 5th Daily Deviation for my image "Taste The Rainbow"

Taste The Rainbow by CapturingTheNight

Huge thanks must go to :iconlaurelin-cosplay: for suggesting the image and the legendary Nancy :iconanoya: for featuring it as a DD

It is quite surprising to me how much this image has been accepted by the public, both on here and elsewhere on the net.  For a long time I hesitated to even upload it as I thought it was just another standard "Milkyway Bow" image that are a bit overdone these days (But I guess you can say that about a lot of photography).  I came across it again recently after it had been sitting on my computer for over half a year and I decided to finally upload it.

Thank you so much to everyone for all the comments, watches and likes.  I'll hopefully get around to answering all the comments soon.

______________________________________________________

I have been involved in a few interviews lately.  At the start of the year I was filmed for a documentary on astrophotography in Australia.  The filmmakers interviewed about 15 fellow astrophotographers over a few days and are currently sifting through the mountain of footage they collected to produce the final film.  I'll let you know when it launches.

Plans are also under way with a local reporter who wants to film me out under the stars for a feature on me and my work.  We have had to cancel and reschedule the filming a couple of times due to extreme fire danger periods, but now that things have cooled down here in Australia that project will hopefully happen soon.

:iconirphotogirl: the founder of the new group :iconstellar-landscapers: recently asked if she could interview me for the group.  If you are into night sky scapes (and lets face it, if you follow my work, you probably are) then I can highly recommend checking out the group.  It is only small at the moment but I hope to see it grow exponentially soon.  You can read the interview here:

Finally, whilst I have you.  The Light Inspired Group :iconlightinspired: through its sister group :iconphoto-contest: is currently holding another Nature Photo Contest.  I will once again be on the judging panel and there are some amazing software packages up for grabs as prizes.  You have to be in it to win it.

Photo Contest 2014
Updated 31.05.2014:
We have changed the rules and select for future four polls -> 6 images per Category (6 x 4 = 24) because we have a lot of "equivalent" hi-q images..!!!
Nature provides us with a never-ending supply of inspiration for photography. Technical quality, clarity and composition are all important, but so too is a flair for the ability to capture a picture-perfect moment when an interesting or unusual lighting opportunity presents itself. Light creates shadow and shadow in return, enhances the appearance of a subject. The interaction of the two is fascinating. Light can make a subject feisty or dull while shadows can make it mysterious or terrifying. The position and strength of the lights and shadows always set the general mood of an image and showcases the creativity of a photographer in capturing their vision of the nature that surrounds us all.
For the past 4 years, our LightInspire


Cheers

Greg

I envy you.  It seems you have the live in the perfect place and have the time to get such stunning photographs.  On a different note: I'd like to point out that your picture titled "Infinity" certainly caught my eye! Wink/Razz
