Peter Burian examines the expanding range of mirrorless hybrid SLT cameras, what they offer to
enthusiasts, and how to maximise the use of their features.
There are a number of options available for most camera owners when they prepare to focus
on their subject, and each offers different potential. Andrew Smallman checks out focusing
possibilities, and looks at how you should use them.
Peter Wilson-Jones presents a few in-camera tricks you can use to introduce creative blur
into your images.
Profile: Peter Elfes – Green Desert
After growing up as an inner-city denizen and the son of a Greek immigrant photographer in
Sydney, Peter Elfes travelled to the urban canyons of New York before he finally returned to
photograph one of the most expansive and open regions of Australia. He spoke to Robert Keeley
about how he came to be shooting over Lake Eyre.
Layers are one of the most important elements of the Photoshop software program, but many
beginners and even more experienced enthusiasts can find them confusing. In this basic primer
Peter Wilson-Jones helps clear the fog away by discussing one way to use them.
Locations – Karijini National Park, WA
In the remote northwest of Western Australia, hidden amongst deep chocolate-coloured gorges,
are the emerald waterways of Karijini National Park. Photographer Luke Gerson says this
national park is a long way from the major cities, but worth visiting nonetheless.
