AUSTRALIAN DRONE LICENCE SCHEME DELAYED THE Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) has delayed the roll out of a nationwide drone registration scheme, with recreational users not expected to need to register for the scheme until mid to late 2020. Peter Gibson, Manager Corporate Communications at CASA, said the initial rollout will begin later this year. “Commercial operators [will be] first [to register], then recreational,” he said. “Recreational users are likely to start in mid to late 2020.” Reports in March suggested drone registration for recreational users is expected to cost $20 a year for recreational drones, while commercial drone users will be charged anywhere from $100 to $160. According to the CASA website, commercial and recreational users will need to also complete an online training course, with Gibson confirming users will need to supply the…

PORTRAIT ANNETTE COLLINS My hoodlum EDITOR’S COMMENTS Annette Collins says she captured this image on a beach. “I noticed the light reflecting onto my son’s face nice and evenly so I snapped this photo, hood and all. I converted it to black and white to simplify it and remove the warm colour casts the sand was throwing onto his face. I used Topaz to emphasise his freckles and do the Black and white conversion,” she says. As well as the freckles, you’ve also caught interesting light in your sons’s eyes, which adds up to an evocative portrait. Well done. TECHNICAL DETAILS Nikon D750, 50mm lens, 1/320s @ f2.8, ISO 100. Lightroom used for sharpening, shadows, highlights, burning, dodging. Topaz used for black and white conversion. JILL VELINOS Poppy EDITOR’S COMMENTS Jill Velinos says she has spent time working on environmental…

the mono awards 2019

MAJOR SPONSER SUPPORTING SPONSOR Run by Australian Photography and Capture, a judging panel of nine of Australia and New Zealand’s finest photographers judged the more than 2,000 entries in the competition, which gave entrants a simple brief: the best single black and white image across one of two categories, People and Places. Leppien’s winning People-category image, captured in Madagascar, shows a fleeting moment as a boy plays with a tyre in the shadow of the island’s iconic Baobab trees. For judge John Crawford, the image was a standout in a hugely competitive field. “It’s striking and unique, with all the elements perfectly placed. A beautiful image,” he said. Gaanesh Prasad’s image Fly High was the result of more than two hours patiently waiting at the Wings over Illawarra airshow for the perfect moment to unfold. “I…

MAJOR SPONSORS SUPPORTING SPONSOR SHARRON LEPPIEN BOY WITH TYRE Hailing from the Hunter valley, Sharron Leppien describes herself as an observer, and was recently honoured to be the first woman ever elected as the Chairman of the Maitland International Salon of Photography since it was incorporated in 1953. “Thinking fast and always being prepared is the life of a travelling photographer. Changing light, changing situations and the ever changing terrain when travelling is a challenge that can only be conquered by planning ahead. I may have an idea of what I could be photographing on a particular day but, people and the ever changing environment can throw a myriad of thrills and surprises that only with experience can be dealt with successfully.” Her winning image, captured in Madagascar, is the perfect combination of an iconic scene…
