My new wallet I got a few days ago. I can’t believe how good the quality is, I’m hoping it will last me a long time.

My new wallet I got a few days ago. I can’t believe how good the quality is, I’m hoping it will last me a long time. 

Last weekend we had our first road trip together. We went to Margaret River which was a fun 3 hour drive and made a great weekend away.

Here’s a few photos from the trip that I liked best!

Enjoyable 
Sometimes it’s good to take a break during busy times and enjoy the things that makes us happy

Here is the remaining photos from several weeks ago.

My weekend shoot - Part One

Although I’m more of a landscape/urban shooter it was fun to get to do some portraits. The 100L did a great job of them as well, I’m glad I didn’t end up using my 50 1.4! 

Part two will be up tomorrow.

Reading The Paper II 
Since my first upload with the 6D was my girlfriend reading the paper, I thought it would be fun to redo the shot with a different paper now that I’m more familiar with my 6D.

City Beach 
After my gear almost being taken out by a rogue wave the last time, I finally got the courage to give seascapes another try. I went with a friend this time and stood a bit further back to keep my baby (6D) safe.

I used my 10 stop for this and sadly there was heavy clouds when we arrived, but by the time it was dark enough for a several minute exposure, almost all the clouds had disappeared. We didn’t want to get too close and when one wave came in quite close, we made sure to quickly pick up our tripods and run backwards. This shot was taken at:
17mmf11ISO 100220 seconds
The several minute exposure was thanks to my ND filter. In comparison, my friend was using a 2 stop ND filter and could only get a 1 second exposure at the same time as I took my image. Although this is the image I used, I took several exposures and experimented with blending images although this one is what I had envisioned when planning the shoot.I’m definitely going to give this another try sometime soon, I just need to find a area that has similar composition to the image I tried to take that day everything went wrong. Winter still has another month or so left so hopefully I can get some heavily clouded days.
I have no more images queued so time to go out and shoot this weekend! I am meant to do some portraits for a friend this Sunday so as long as that happens I will have some uploads for next week, otherwise it’s time to work through my photo idea list. Thanks for reading and you can also find me at:

This is the City Beach surf life saving tower, one of the many popular beaches in Western Australia. I won’t give a long description to this image as I will save for it for the other version of this image. The next one should be up tomorrow or Thursday so I hope you enjoy!

Blue Hour 
Finally getting back into shooting more regularly and I’m glad I am! 
[[MORE]]
This was taken at Lake Monger which is roughly 5km from the Perth CBD. When focusing on the main subject, this image gives a sense of a peaceful place in a rural area yet the city can be seen in the not too far distance. 
I had wanted to capture this image for quite some time but I never had the right type of weather for it to work. The sky was very clear which I wasn’t too happy about since if it was heavily clouded, that would have looked great for such a long exposure. This image was taken at:
17mmF8ISO 100120 seconds
I used my 10 stop B+W ND filter to be able to achieve a 2 minute exposure, the light was quite strong still but thankfully a large cloud was blocking most of its light which allowed me to get such a long exposure. On the weekend I went shooting with a friend and managed to get a pretty decent seascape image. I will be posting a black and white version of it tomorrow and save the colour version for later in the week.

Cloudy Forecast & A Different Perspective

Here are two different versions of the same long exposure I took over a week ago. These were taken at South Perth which is probably the nicest city view apart from Kings Park.

Reliving My Childhood 
A self portrait (my girlfriend took the photo but I set everything so still a self portrait!) of me looking at a Where’s Wally book!
[[MORE]]
We went Dome Cafe as always although at a different location and I noticed that they had Where’s Wally books which I loved as a kid so I could help myself and started looking at one. 
This is pretty much just a happy snap so there’s no real story behind the image but it was taken at:
35mmf2ISO 2501/100th
I have a few more landscape shots to upload here, otherwise I don’t have much more to post. I try to document my activities on days that I’ve gone out although I tend to go to the same places and end up not wanting to post the images because they aren’t anything special. 
Once my girlfriend is free again, I hope to try and do some more technical portraits with a strobist set up although that most likely wont be for quite some time. I also want to work on my still life/product photography and get more use out of my 100mm.
That’s all for now, thanks for reading and you can also find me at:
