Got Your Back

Virtual meetings are now the norm so why not make them look good while doing it?

There are lots of good ones around, but there’s some particular favourites such as stills from a Wes Anderson film.

Another favourite for this bureau is pictures from the interior of the TARDIS from Doctor Who.

For whatever image you decide on, a good tip if you’re looking for realism, is the user places their camera at the same distance as it is in the desired background. It will make the user look more like they are actually in the photo.

Getting Way Out

There’s a lot less opportunity for travelling about at the moment so we have to make use of photography from others back when it was possible to move around.

The Landscape Photographer of the Year collects the best there is in the world that is far beyond the four walls that many people are now restricted to.

The highlight of these landscape photos is how abstract they look.

Some look like something else entirely.

Window Into The Street

Alexander Zalokar is a photographer who does street photography.

That’s not a particularly unique situation, but Zalokar has a nice darkness to them revealing more than what’s just on the surface.

He achieves this with interesting perspectives and contrasts. He converts the mundane into the mesmerising.

The Nature of Photography

The 2019 Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year awards have recently been announced and, as usual, they are great.

They are just as much a celebration of the diversity of nature as a celebration of photography.
