We know and love the vibrant work of Laura Blythman – her layered collages and colour palette are so recognisable ….that is until now!
I got a tad over excited when I spotted some of her latest fine art prints of textural, snowy and midnight mountain scenes. Simply beautiful – you can go directly to explore her limited edition prints online now!
Well the timing of this couldn’t have been BETTER for me!
Two of my favourite photographers, Kiwi Peta Mazey and Australian based Kate Berry have continued their ongoing, beautiful collaboration by taking their Photo School ONLINE for all you enthusiastic at home photogs!
I have completed the course myself and found it to be not only super easy to consume and understand but equally enlightening. It is designed to be worked through in your own time and truly accessible all picture takers. I have been geeking out on photo taking for some time and found some real gems in here. Tips for bright light, low light, dealing with lines, light metering (yes that sounds techy but its the best!) and so much more.
Whats more its incredibly affordable at $29 AU! (with special discount for you until the end of July. Just use STUDIOHOME25 for 25% off until the 10th of August!)
Here’s some more info from your teachers:
“The fun, interactive online version of our in-person classes, access delivered straight to your email and available to you to flip through and print to your hearts content!
Our online course will to teach you all how easy it is to get the best out of you and your camera, be it your phone (that is what we both use for our everyday pics) or your big fancy DSLR (if you don’t have a DSLR you can just use your point and shoot). We promise our class teaches you in the funnest and friendliest way possible. No getting in trouble. Just fun!
In this course we will cover, using your phone, composition, editing and finding THE LIGHT (those of you who are familiar with us know we are slightly obsessed with pretty light). Once we have mastered the principles of taking an ace photo with your phone, we will get started learning the basics of using your DSLR.
At the end of each chapter is a fun task to get you out and about using your newfound skills.”

The super clever team of minds, hands, eyes and skills behind The Periodic have struck again – this time with a lush edition focused on “home”. Dismantling the usual magazine structure, they have taken different rooms as inspiration for each section of the journal. They concentrate on what each room provides for us during the cooler months, and how we can fully realise its offerings.
This issue, amongst others; they meet natural textile designer Marta Buda, uniform maker Matt Nash, houseboat resident Astra Rushton, and the sisters behind Coco’s Cantina, with their lush family gardens. Each possess an independent force that is inspiring our local culture.
With a firm opinion that home is where the heart is, the pages embrace the fact that life is messy, unstyled and a work in progress!
