Melbourne at dusk

Dec 14, 2013

I have to admit that I’m scared of heights. So doing photography on top of the Eureka Skydeck seemed like a great opportunity to me. I got a pass for a full year so expect me to take more shots from Skydeck. Just walking around at night and getting a 360 degree view from 88 floors up is amazing. It’s just one of the many reasons that I love Melbourne so much. I can’t wait to go back.
Just a quick note that if you are going to be shooting through glass you will probably have to deal with reflections. Wear black and purchase a circular polariser if you don’t have one already. This won’t eliminate all reflections but it will help remove some. Getting your camera as close as possible to the glass will also help. I’ll be using a lenskirt next time I shoot and that should remove all reflections.

Once I was done at Skydeck I decided to try to shoot the Webb Bridge. This was on my previous to do list. Once there I met some of my cousins. Andrea was hosting a night photography class and I just happened to bump into her half way through my shoot. You should check out her website as she is quite talented

Nick and Kat in Fiji

Nov 22, 2013

So we went to Fiji from the 24th of October to the 3rd of November for my last holiday for a while. The sun was hot and the pools were cool. We played golf, kayaked and snorkelled for fun. I managed to capture some footage with the GoPro that I still haven’t looked at yet but I’m sure will be great.
Whilst we were there we figured it would be a great chance to take some engagement photos for Nick and Kat. Congratulations on this happy time!

Pulpit Rock

Oct 22, 2013

This was a bit hard to capture as it was raining quite hard. I blended multiple shots together with a technique called median stacking. In lightroom simply make your adjustments to 1 of the images you have captured. Then sync these settings with the other photos. Then select all the photos you want to merge and select “edit in” then “Open as Layers in Photoshop”. Once loaded in PS you select all layers and go to “layers” then “smart object” then “create smart object”. Once this is done you go back to the smart object options and select “stacking > median”. You can experiment with other options rather than median. I’ll go back to Pulpit Rock when the weather is better.

Port Melbourne Pier

So the first image from my locations to photograph list is checked off. My B+W 1000x ND filter came in which enabled this 122 second exposure.

Twelve Apostles

Jul 26, 2013

I’ve been going through the old photos on my hdd to re-edit and upload the images here based on the new template size and I came across this shot of the twelve apostles. This has been a spot that I have loved going to over the years as the drive always gives me time to think. Not the best photo ever but it was fun editing it!

Amazing sunset from Mt Dandenong lookout

Jul 16, 2013

This was taken years ago (2006) from the Mt Dandenong lookout with my 30D that I no longer own. I happened to capture this amazing sunset at the time. If you look in the bottom left you can even see the Melbourne cbd silhouette. Lucky I had a backup of these images as the middle image was corrupted.

Sunset photo and updates

So I have been working on some new projects. A video for DCC that is using my glidecam and my new gopro hero 3. I have to say the hero 3 is looking awesome. Here is the video DCC Promo.

We headed up to the Grampians at about lunch time on Friday. We stayed in Halls Gap which was amazing and went to the balconies lookout at Sunset. It was only a km or two from the carpark. The next day was the fun bit. It took us almost an hour to reach the top of the Pinnacle but it was well worth it. Seeing sights along the way like the Grand Canyon (nowhere near as impressive as the U.S. version) and silent street made the journey so much fun. We had also made the trip to MacKenzie Falls and then finally the Boroka Lookout (below) before heading home. I had to climb over the rails to get to this vantage point but because I am scared of heights my heart was pounding. It was truly an exhilarating moment. I wish we had more time to stay…
