JHP Photoshop Actions - Review
At the end of last month I flew to Alice Springs and explored the surroundings of Central Australia over an extended weekend. It was an unbelievable trip and the experience of almost pure Outback was so unfamiliar/unique to me that I found it was amazing how Australia offers such a dynamic range of landscapes and culture from cities to the vast outback. I documented my trip visually as you’ll see as you scroll down – although some of these images are very revealing of Central Australia it is still nothing compared to being there, however with the use of panoramic photographs I hope it offers a better representation of the broad spacious lands that I experienced.

This is a really simple tutorial and well worth the small effort required, because you’ll have something to put on your photographs/artworks without making it look too ugly while making sure you get enough credit in case your work is copied or used.
How to make a simple watermark in GIMP
Most of the time blur is really frustrating for photographers, but blurring can be used to create very interesting effects like in long exposures. The ‘Zoom-Blur Effect’ as it’s sometimes called can be used to draw the viewer’s eyes into the photograph and onto the subject with the edges blurred, our eyes tend to disregard the blurred parts and look for the sharp in-focus areas.
In this short simple tutorial I’ll show you how to achieve this effect. Unfortunately if you have a compact digital camera or do not have a manual zoom lens it won’t be possible to achieve the same effect, however I’ll show you how to replicate this effect in GIMP.

Kane is a remarkable photographer and I enjoy following his photographs on Flickr, while receiving awesome inspiration and learning fresh techniques :) .
Kane’s Autobiography (from Flickr profile):
My name is Kane Gledhill, I am 27 years old.
I live in Brisbane, QLD, Australia.
I’ve been a keen photographer for over 15 years; I picked up my first SLR camera when I was still in school, back when I lived in New Zealand. It was a Vivitar v2000 and it cost me $300.00 cash! I’ve probably put 100’s of rolls of film through this little gem, I’d never sell.
