"A hidden gem in my local region, once you get out of the car at Perry Sandhills it feels like you have entered another world, so different from the surrounds of the Malle region. Beautiful deep orange sand, sculpted by the weather, a photographers playground. I came out this day in hopes of an epic sunset and later some astrophotography. Nature decided to favour my astrophotography idea and blew most of the clouds away for sunset, but this magical pastel light made the horizon glow - anyone would think we are out in the Sahara . As I searched for a possible composition, I noticed my friend walking along the sand dunes ever so picturesque. Just as I got into position to snap that sneaky shot a gust a wind came through and blowing the sand ever so perfectly. Colour pallet of dreams, a very proud image of mine and perfect reminder to be quick on your feet." - @jacintaleephotography

"After hiking through dense bushland for about an hour, we came upon this incredible canyon.
After spending a few hours navigating and exploring here, we were amazed at just how clear the water was and how beautiful the reflections are. Oh, and the water.. yep, filled with the yabbies! A lot of the time we were mindful not to get her toes nipped.
It’s always great to go to spots like this and not have to bring much, thankfully I had the Nikon Z7 and the Nikkor Z 24-70 f4 lens! The setup is so light in my bag, that at times it didn’t even feel like I had a camera with me - let alone something so powerful!"- @joshbeames

Overnight we received the tragic news that our friend and Ambassador, Dale Sharpe sadly passed away.
Dale was world-renowned for his outstanding work and as an extremely passionate and talented photographer who inspired us all and will continue to do so for years to come.
He was a close friend to all of us at Nikon Australia, and we extend our deepest sympathies to Dale’s family, his partner Karlie and daughter Mia.

"This is an intricate macaw feather detail that’s revealed by capturing 160 individual images and then blending them together to create a single image through a process called focus stacking.
Focus stacking is very different from depth of field. A single image made at even the smallest lens aperture will only deliver a single plane of truly sharp focus while introducing lens aberrations. Employing focus stacking allows you to achieve the best of all worlds when you’re seeking to have every part of your subject tack sharp. You can also achieve the highest lens performance possible by using the optimum aperture for the lens.
This stack was captured and internally controlled by the Nikon Z7 camera using a menu setting called Focus Shift Mode. The camera automatically captures each individual image as it steps the focus from front to back creating a stack of images to be blended later. Give it a try!" - @joeyterrill
