Photo of the Week 21

Sunrise

We have been blessed with some fantastic sunrises over the last few weeks. It makes getting up early for a run well worth it!

These images were taken with my iPhone SMAX from the public golf course overlooking City Beach, Wollongong.

Photo of the Week 20

Environmental Portraits

I am not yet brave enough to take traditional style portraits but I really like the idea of taking environmental portraits. That is, taking pictures of people doing their thing in their space. These two images are from the photo shoot I talked about a couple of weeks ago in Photo of the Week 18.

Photo of the Week 19

Sydney Opera House and the Bridge: 2012.

This is one of my very first images from when I  started taking photography seriously. It was taken on a Panasonic FZ250. Not a bad zoom for a little camera! I was at least 1 km away on the other side of the Habour at Lady Macquarie’s Chair in the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens. I don’t have any details on the settings.

I think it still stands the test of time

 

 

 

 

 

Photo of the week 8

Sunday Stills 8

four cockatoos in a tree
Gangster cockatoos 2- after the meeting

I took a long time taking lots of frames of these cockatoos waiting for one to fly away when I was finally rewarded with my battery flashing red.

Once I was home in front of the computer, I was fooling with the clouds – trying to get more texture, when I clicked on a preset filter. It changed the mood immediately and made me think of the Saprano’s. My cheeky cockatoos had suddenly become gangsters! Here the Gangsters have finished their meeting!

Taken with a Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 1/1000 f8.0 ISO 125 65.81 mm

Edited in Lightroom and then with a Digital Photo School preset – Splendid Day
