I got the chance to do a Automotive shoot the other weekend, well I actually did two in the same weekend but I’m only going to show one here for now.
It was through a car club I’m involved in.
Here’s a few photos from the shoot.
I’ll post photos from the other shoot in a few days.
Bored tonight so have been looking at the photos I have on my laptop.
Here’s one from my Busso trip. This is what it looks like to the left of Sugarloaf Rock.
Went out to New Norcia the other day as I was walking around this goathead skull caught my eye.
As soon as I saw it I knew how I wanted the final image to look.
New Norcia has a lot of history bound up in this little religious town, however it felt very dark to me and I think the way I felt while I was there is portrayed in this image.
I forgot to mention that I have a photo in a exhibition at the Artspace Gallery, which is located at 4/192 Hampden Road, Nedlands WA.
It will be there til the 27th of this month.
Go have a look if your in the area.
I have been busy my last couple of swings back, out shooting around York & Northam.
I have been a bit slack on the editing front although I have 3 images that I have finished editing.
There are a few more photos that I have to edit
But for now here’s the 3 that are done.
Well the road trip has finished and I’m returning to work tomorrow. (cue the violins)
I have just spent the afternoon editing the photos from the trip and have uploaded them to http://www.fineartamerica.com where they are for sale. If you like my photos this is the easiest way to purchase a print or canvas and they have all the options that a walk in shop would. You can even get photos printed on aluminum!
Here is a link to the shot of the trip!
This morning saw me back at Sugarloaf Rock for one last time this trip. I arrived just as the sky was starting to light up (about 15mins too late to get a good spot for it) however the morning sunlight did help me produce some nice photos so I’m happy.
After there I went for a little drive to check out some other spots another photographer I bumped into while walking back to my car mentioned, man has this place got some spots!
I then went back to my van for a bit, edited some photos and also got some shots of a local magpie.
After lunch I got bored so I headed out to Yallingup Beach to take some shots there, by the time I got there the clouds were rolling in and the sea was quite rough just how I like it. Got a couple of nice shots but nothing spectacular.
So today’s shot of the day comes from Sugarloaf Rock!
(It looks a bit over saturated in this pic but its not)
Homeward bound tomorrow but not before one last sunrise shoot!
I started today back at bunker bay hoping for a nice sunrise, it didn’t really happen the cloud cover wad just too thick.
From there I drove to Bunbury to buy a charger so I could charge my camera battery as the camera now would not release the shutter.
After getting that sorted I put the battery on charge and started driving, which id how I spent most of the day.
I did make a stop in a forest (run forest run, go on tell me that just didn’t pop into your head!) near Margret River.
Had bees think I was a flower (red and yellow tee shirt, did I mention I’m allergic? )
Startled something bigger than I am with much more hair than me when I coughed (Kangaroo maybe? Something else?)
Ended up driving to Augsta then turning around and heading back to Sugarloaf rock for sunset.
On the way I spotted some flowers that the sunlight was dancing with so I stopped for a few shots.
There I was snapping away and I notice some cows in the back ground and think that could look nice, flowers forground cows & trees in the background.
Turn around after a few more shots and BAM! Cows in forground! (Cue cows with guns song in my head)
I ask them nicely to go back into postion in the background but no matter how I tried they kept coming closer.
My cue to leave & they follow!
With that here’s the pic of the day.
Note the lens makes it look like they aren’t as close as they were. They got quite close. Some running towards me at one stage.
Day two started with me sleeping in because I didnt set my alarm. I awoke to thr dound of birds chirping, males s nice change.
The first spot I drove to was bunker bay. The weather was not really playing nice while I was there and I didnt get any shots that I’m happy with. I did however get in a solid walk around the headland over a lot of rocks a bit of rotting seaweed and a cliff or two, it was a lot walking for no real photos it dud how ever give me the chance to see some seals! Not that I could get close as they were out on a rock sun bathing while getting hit with waves, oh to be a seal!
From here I went to Sugarloaf rock the light was a bit better here and I got a couple of good shots.
Shot of the day below.
From there I went back into town to see if I could get a charger for my camera battery, yep the old leave the charger at home trick! The only one that I cant get is the one for my battery! Im down to only two bars now! Hoping it will last.
Also made it to Canal Rocks and Smiths Beach and the light played nice in between the rain.
After that I went for a drive towards Margaret River I was happy just to drive for the rest of the afternoon on the nice twisty roads.
I did stop for one last shot but I cannot remember where it was.
Anyway off for a shower and bed as I smell like seaweed and will be setting the alarm to get up early to see if I can get a nice shot of bunker bay.
Day One started with the drive down to Busselton, about 3 hours. I always thought it took longer, from what others told me anyway.
On arrival it was less than ideal, heavy clouds and rain. After the rain let up for a minute I grabbed my camera and went for a walk around the jetty took a few photos but nothing that I’ll use. Also paid my $2.50 and took a walk along the jetty, I was watching a rain sbower come in from the south and ended up getting caught in between two of the covered seats they have along the 2km long jetty!
The camera gear. Can you spot what I forgot?
The car packed and ready to go! All this for 4 days for 1 guy?
I went back to the jetty after finding the place I’m staying at.
The sky didn’t really want to play the game tonight tho.
This is the best shot of the day. Unedited pano. Will play with it more when I get home.
All of the photos on the blog while I’m away will be phone as I don’t like to do too much editing on my laptop cox I end up with photos every where.
Im off to bunker bay tomorrow. Hope the weather and sky play nice!
