David Kleinert Photography Workshop.

Our local Landcare group organised a photography workshop for today with local wildlife photographer David Kleinert. We spent half the morning on theory learning about what all those button and dials on your camera do. I knew they were there for a reason!

David has a great photo blog which is worth a look.

We then ventured off to a local bushland reserve to try out some of our new skills. I've picked up a few tips which I want to try out further.
Here's a few pics that I took this morning.

The photographers.

Practising my macro shots and getting background blurry.

Two butterflies having an intimate moment.

I tried and tried (I have the scratches on my legs to prove it) to get a good photo of a dragonfly but they are just too quick. This is the best one I got.

New branches.

Old branches.
Rusty boundary fence.


  1. great shots Julie, it's awesome when you get to hang out with other like minded souls isn't it..

  2. Beautiful shots! It's so liberating finding out what all those bells and whistles do on your camera. I haven't looked back since I found out!

  3. Great pics. I also need to learn about what my awesome camera can do! I just love your photo of "Óld Trees" and the butterflies are just stunning.

  4. Just checked out David's blog - just amazing... have added to my Favourites! Thanks

  5. Butterfly porn.....?

    I look forward to tapping you for all your new skills :-)

  6. Hi Julie,
    Wow! Your photos are great! My favorite is the shot of the rusty barbed wire fencing.
