21 May 2017 – On an impromptu roadtrip to Canberra, we stopped on the way at the beautiful Woolongong and cheekily made our way down to the off–limits–due–to–storm–damaged–cliffs for some exploring/yoga/photography.
As the tide came up the waves started to crash against the rocks, creating some amazing opportunities for photos. My lovely housemate Sjusanna wanted some shots of her meditating on the cliff with the sea spray behind her, and we got some rippers.
Then this happened, and I have not been able to look at the shots yet without almost peeing my pants in laughter.
Not so zen now, hey Sjuzie Q?! Hahahaaaohhahahahahaaa ….uh oh

This week we are addressing ISO, the final of the three facets which make up the ‘triangle’ of photography. ISO is a way of measuring the sensitivity of your cameras image sensor to light. The lower the number of the ISO setting is, the less sensitive it is; the higher the number, the more sensitive it is to the light. Higher ISO settings will allow you to shoot in lower light without a flash, but also means more ‘noise’ in the image. However, this can be utilised to add mood and artistic effect, as seen in the above examples.
