A Butterflies Journey
Song Title: Poly By +Meghan Arias
Video editing: Dianne Hall
Video Production: Dianne Hall

Thank you  Meghan Arias for giving me permission to use your beautiful song for my butterfly time lapse clip. I have refined this again, shortened it and added some stills to show the Butterflies Journey.

This Beautiful Butterfly was nurtured as an egg from my garden and took 2 weeks to develop from a caterpillar to a Chrysalis and another 10 days to emerge from its Chrysalis to become a butterfly.

This butterfly is called a Common Crow, and it was released back to its host plant from where I discovered the egg :)

Song Title 'Poly' sung by the beautiful voice of Meghan Arias : Used with Permission, Meghan Arias. http://meghanarias.com/blog/ http://meghanarias.com/2013/01/16/pol...

This is my attempt at editing what was a 25 minute video down to 3.19 minutes and learning how to speed up slow parts...the actual emergence is at real time ...the rest is in 4x the time towards the end :)

Thank you for watching the whole way through...that way you get to watch it as an egg then to a caterpillar, chrysalis and finally a butterfly all happening within the space of a month :)) Enjoy!

+Zack Arias  (in case Meghan doesn't see this ;)

Thanks so much for the great capture!
 
When Camera Nerds Swarm!

+Jay Patel  and +Varina Patel  two globetrotting, professional Landscape and wilderness photographers are in Sydney right now, amongst other things filming a new video tutorial series, and the #Sydney photography community being as passionate as it is, naturally someone organised a big group photo-walk to share the love.

And big props to +Mykal Hall who organised the Photo walk and got Jay & Varina involved :)

It's FINALLY READY!!!

This Beautiful Butterfly was nurtured as an egg from my garden and took 2 weeks to develop from a caterpillar to a Chrysalis and another 10 days to emerge from its Chrysalis form to become a butterfly.

This butterfly is called a Common Crow, and it was released back to its host plant from where I discovered its egg :)

This is my first attempt at editing what was a 25 minute video down to 4.30 minutes and learning how to speed up slow parts and slow down crucial parts...the actual emergence was very quick and needed to be slowed down from .30 sec to about 1:20 ...the rest is in real time or 4x the time towards the end :)

Thank you for watching the whole way through...that way you get to watch its little body pumping the fluid to its wings, it looks like it's doing pushups as the wings begin to expand and the body become slimmer :)) Enjoy!

I'm glad someone saw it +Ruth Garlick ...so good to hear from you xox
 
It was such a pleasure to finally put real faces to names at the #patelsydneyphotowalk with +Jay Patel and +Varina Patel, organised by +Mykal Hall.

It was a long time between drinks with our regular G+ friends and community, but I'm so glad to say it finally happened, and what a fun and enthusiastic bunch we all are when you get us all into a good old Sydney pub!

These quick shots were snapped on Mykal's my Samsung Galaxy. I didn't snap as many as I thought I did...because I just couldn't stopped talking long enough!! I had such a great time!! Soooo good to catch up with you all.

Thank you to all those people who went out of their way to introduce themselves and if you were too shy I'm just so glad I got to meet you as I went through the crowds trying to catch all the new names.

Jay & Varina , thank you from the bottom of our heart for the generosity of your time and wealth of knowledge shared with us all. The Sydney community loved you!!!!

Thank you +Mykal Hall for the great job you did organising this xox

Jay & Varina Patel Sydney Photowalk This Saturday

This is one of the images you could capture while walking with +Jay Patel & +Varina Patel this Saturday the 11th. They were here holding a workshop at Port Stephens over 3 days last weekend hosted by +Brent Mail. +Dianne Hall and I were lucky enough to attend as spots sold quickly. More on that in a future post. :)))

 We will be meeting on the steps of the Sydney Opera House steps at 6.30pm and making our way slowly to the finish point at Observatory Hill by 9pm. Then drinks afterwards. We would love to see you there to say goodbye to the Patels and to encourage them to return for more visits and workshops here. 

Here's the link for the walk event.

Will see you there, though I would prefer a final pub as the destination than the hill.

Introduction
Joined Google+ so I didn't become a photography widow... :) I've met some of the amazing Google+ Community on my first Google+ Cockatoo Island Sydney Walk back in April 2012:) As serendipity would have it I have since taken a liking to photography and have begun an interesting learning journey with Mykal as my mentor/teacher.
I look forward to meeting a lot of Mykal's 'Tribe' as we venture out to new locations and I practise using my very raw and newly acquired photography skills  :))
