Sparks Fly!

On Tuesday I went out with a group of other photographers to capture some spinning steel wool that was on fire, it has a cool effect, we also did some light painting to break things up. It was a heap of fun and it was good to meet some new people.

Anyway on with the photos!



Glass Slipper Teen Ball

Its been a fair while since I made a post, I have been busy with work and haven’t had a lot of spare time.

A few week ago I was the official photographer for the Glass Slipper Teen Ball and I must say that I had a blast! All the teens were so well behaved! While it was definitely a challenge for me I walked away with a lot of good photos and I also learnt a lot as well.
These are my fave shots from the night.

Slight rip Sunday!

Last Sunday the same group of people I met up with on Saturday all met up at Lesmurdie Falls.
While I didn’t forget anything I did manage to put a rather large rip in my jeans!
As always it was good to get out with others as landscape photography can be quite the solitary exercise at times, its always good to have someone to chat with while your out although it can make getting the compostion you want a bit harder when you have other people around that you don’r want in your shot.

Anyway here’s a couple of photos from the day.

I also took my Nikon FM2 and took a few shots, the film should be processed by the time I get back from site.

Forget Something Saturday?

On Saturday I went out to Bells Rapids on the Avon River with a few friends from a photography group I am in. We all met up quite early (around 6am) and we all walked down to the river from the car park under the light of a few torches (I forgot mine).
After a little chat and letting my eyes adjust to the lack of light I found a spot and set up my tripod and camera, only to try and turn it on and nothing, wait what is going on here? I did turn it on right? Oh crap! Yep I left my battery at home on the charger!
So I made my way back to my car and drove home to get my battery, on the way missing the best of the light, the others told me I didn’t miss much as it had rained for most of the time I was gone (around 40 minutes) but I knew I had missed the light.
I still managed to get a few photos on my digital camera and this one would be the best, although its far from a great photo.


As I was leaving I decided to go up to Bells Lookout and see if there was a easy way to get down to the waterfall, now I’m not going to say its easy but its not all that hard to walk down to the waterfall and its quicker than walking in from the bottom but getting back up the hill is a bit of a battle!
I decided that I wanted to make the walk as easy as possible so I only took my tripod and my Nikon FM2 loaded with some B&W film which I have yet to get developed when I do I’ll be sure to post some of the shots.

Lake Joondalup – Fog

I have had photographs of this spot in my mind for a long time, I have tried 3 or 4 times to get the shot I want and it has escaped me until yesterday!
I was asleep the sound of my wife’s alarm going off in my ears when she got up she looks out the window and says “wow, it’s pretty foggy outside” at first I rolled back over but then I remembered this is the fog I had been waiting for to get my shot at Joondalup Lake! So I dragged my self out of bed made a coffee and headed down to the spot. I’m glad I did!

This is the shot I had in mind.

This shot I saw as I was packing up so I got my gear back out and set it up and shot a few frames, It was well worth it!

WA Day @ Matilda Bay

My WA Day morning was spent at Matilda Bay with the same group of people I witnessed a spectacular sunrise with a few days before this morning however it was predicted that if would be foggy and it sure was, I could hardly see the end of my street! But as I got closer to Matilda Bay I could see that the fog was lifting but It still covered the city and still made for some great photos!

This is the keeper from the morning.

After Matilda Bay the group made our collective way up to Kings Park to see if we could get something from up there and also to have breakfast or in my case morning tea.

A shot of the group I was with.
