A good excuse to go out and take some photos
Found some images to try some hdr on. I had been bracketing on many shoots before thinking that I’ll one day blend them in hdr but I never end up doing it.
Congratulations to my sister Caroline and future brother in law Rod.
A shoot to learn more about lighting techniques and about my camera. Certainly helped me to do some problem solving and to try different techniques in a relaxed environment.
Great views at the top but it was a bit of a climb to get up there. Stopped on the way back to see some amazing views of the Milky Way. Went past the home of the buxton burger. Must stop there one time soon.
Long exposure really comes in handy when you want to remove people from a photo. Unfortunately it was going to take too long to remove the cars so I didn’t bother.
I was meant to go to a different location tonight but didn’t research the location well enough so I went to Princes Pier instead. I’d already shot a different part of the pier so I tried to focus on a different area this time. I hadn’t seen other photographers shoot this part of the pier so I thought I’d give it a bash (see video that only Aussies will get).
Decided to try my luck again at Eureka during the heat but this time with a Lens Skirt. It certainly did a much better job but wasn’t 100% effective on all shots. I’ve been told to expect fireworks on Australia Day so I’ll be back for that. Also I just started using flickr so you can start following me there if you like.
Went to Lagoon Pier for sunset. Got there way too early and ended up sitting down and enjoying the waves and the sunset for a while. It was very beautiful.
