Canon 400D Long Exposure – 10 Months in the Making…

Thanks, Covid… It’s been ten months since I have been out sight seeing and happy snapping, partly due to lockdown, partly due to work being absolutely flat out, and partly due to being reluctant once the great state of Victoria finally opened up, to actually go out… But on Saturday afternoon, we decided to hit …

UniFi Security Surveillance Camera | UniFi NVR – Part 1

When I designed our family home here in Pakenham, I had quite a few things in mind and one of those things was to install network cabling throughout and home theater cabling in the lounge, before the plaster was installed on walls & ceilings. Part of the cabling job was to run cables for future …

Building My Own 3D Printer – MK-I (Part 1)

Sometime last year ago, I decided it was time to jump on the 3D printer bandwagon, better late than never right? I looked at the printers that are somewhat “affordable” to me, and couldn’t believe how small they had gotten – like all technology, get’s smaller over time, but in the case of the 3D …

Home Network Upgrade Progress | Cable Management & New(er) Server

So, its been a while since I posted anything really technical on this blog, or did any real works to my home servers & network – yet in both situations, are long overdue, so without further adieu, here we go! I was in long need of some nicer looking cable managers. The ones I had …

Trip to San Remo & Phillip Island (again) March 2020

Long Exposure | First Solo Shots After Professional Training!

So after my crash course in long exposure photography using ND filters, I decided to give it a crack – this time instead of sunset, let’s try sunrise – which for me is pretty early to no only be out of bed, but also dressed and on location – on a weekend mind you! I …

Beach Pix | Long Exposure Photography Short Course | We Are Raw Photography

So, I was just perusing Facebook to see what people were up to – you know, that bi-weekly scroll… when I stumbled upon an ad for a short course in long exposure photography using ND filters during the daytime, I opened the ad and loved the pictures I was seeing. I look at the dates, …

Beach Pics | Princes Pier, Melbourne – 1st Visit

So a while back I saw some amazing pictures on Instagram of what appeared to be the remains of an old pier – all that was sticking out of the water was the old support posts that had since been chopped. The pictures were long exposure to get that smooth, mirror-like appearance of the water. …

Beach Pix | Grantville VIC |2019-10-30

So it was nearly the end of the working day, I’m in north Melbourne, and Melissa sends me a message to see when I will be home – everyone wants to go to the beach. We decided that by the time everyone was home, we realistically had a couple of hours daylight left, so we …

Moe visits us from Japan in 2019

Melissa and I have had two Japanese exchange students in 2011 and 2012. In 2011, our first was Megumi, and in 2012 we had Moe (pronounced Moy) come to stay with us for three months each. Just imagine that – as a student, being required to travel to a foreign country for three months, speak …
