Recent shots and new year
So it has been a while since the last update, things have been busy yet quiet at the same time. I did manage to head out and do a couple of photo shoots recently. To the left is a shot of Amy at St Kilda beach. I like the wonky horizon and curious expression on her face. This was done with one flash and surprisingly easy once you balance the ambient light.
I have been to St Kilda beach a few times and always manage to find something new. It is a great part of Melbourne and full of character. I will be trying to get back there and work on some other projects.
A little while ago I went to a different beach in Melbourne, Brighton beach, and tried some slow exposure shots. They required a bit more patience but paid off just as well. Using some ND filters to allow for extra long exposures (20-30sec) the water became a smooth misty layer.
Working with a tripod and camera, good tunes playing and a gorgeous sunset is a pretty good way to spend an afternoon. This one worked better for me due to the lights on the horizon. There were many similar shots but this was the one with the clearest city lights. I need to get out and do more of these I think. Expect to see more landscapes and cityscapes in the next couple of months.
There are a projects that I am looking at in the near future, paid and personal that are exciting and should produce some great work. A lot of planning but should lead to great results.
I hope that everyone’s new year is shaping up to be better than the last and full of amazing possibilities.
