- A great set of images from a fireman in Florida (alliteration accidental) – love the colour, the form and the simplicity
- Speaking of colour – this series of images from the Siena International Photography Awards is a feast of colour and form

Former member Jack Dascombe liked to dabble in this, and Keith Seidel (of Edwardstown and the SAPF Judge Coordinator) has a specially modified camera for the job (no IR filter). This article in Resource Magazine shows you the work of one photographer
- You all know I’ve got a taste for night and street photography. The question is how can you get the best lighting for both foreground and background? Well, like fill flash in portraits, you can fill here too – as this article in PetaPixel describes. But the difference is that you are painting with light sources (That might be an idea for a workshop……). Those that saw the Trent Park exhibition last year may recall his light painting of his mother’s gum tree – and there is one on the back of this years calendar from Huw
Finally, a bit of a discussion point. You have probably heard and talked about photographing other peoples art, plagiarising other artists etc. Last night I came across an article in Resource Magazine again about photographer Tommy Clarke using a different point of view – aerial photography.

Consider the infamous Apple/Samsung patent battle over the iPhone/Galaxy shape and “swipe to unlock” – that shows how silly litigation can get. The patent wars continue in the US….
