Once a year the camera club I belong to plans a weekend trip to Tiri Tiri Matangi Island, a smallish land-mass, 30 mins by boat off Auckland’s east coast.
The island is a bird watchers paradise, and admittedly this is what draws most photographers.
I however have evolved, and realised after last year’s trip that the patience for bird photography was something I just didn’t have. (And me cursing just ruins the birdsong anyway!)
So this year I came with the idea of furthering my flashwork and using the abundance of fellow photographers to work on a few shots I’d had rattling around in my brain.
And so there we were, flashes, gels, willing subjects and a soon to be less than cold fridge.
