  • Forrest Chase

    This is Forrest Chase which is in the heart of the PERTH CBD. I love weather like this but as you can tell by the somewhat empty streets, not everyone does. I got quite a bit of use out of my 17-40 recently, I haven’t used it much for urban shooting so it was very interesting using it. I found objects directly above me in the frame which amazed me…

  • Mends Street Sunset

    While waiting for our pizza to be finished cooking, I was walking around seeing that what caught my eye. It was just before sunset and the sky had a great color to it so I managed to capture this shot. I was considering bracketing this shot but ended up just doing one single shot, underexposing the shadows by two stops. Surprisingly, when I pulled the shadows in post they retained…

  • In The Clouds

    I finally went out shooting and even more strange, I used my 17-40! Today I went shooting with a Flickr friend since we both wanted to try some long exposures with our 10 stop ND filters. We got to the location about an hour before sunset just to be safe so we did a lot of standing around and talking. This shot was actually taken after sunset when I was…

  • Cloudy Forecast

    For a long time I have avoided doing any kind of images of the city from this point as I feel it is overdone and not as creative as I’d like to be. There are two factors that made me decide to try this kind of shot again: 1. My 10 Stop ND Filter Being that the 10 stop allows for long exposures during the day time, you can get…

  • Week 7 – Taxi Stand

    I always find myself arriving early to meet ups which I did on Saturday night. I went for a short walk and there was something about this small street that just seemed very appealing to me. Maybe it’s the fact there’s nature in the foreground with man made structures in the back, or maybe it just makes a nice evening scene.

  • Next Stop Perth

    I have driven past this view many times in the past few weeks and had always wanted to take a shot from this bridge and finally did last weekend.

  • Empty Streets

    Last week I mentioned I took my 17-40 for a walk and here is another image I was happy with. I previously said I’ve tried to stay away from using the clarity slider in LR5 but after experimenting, I have gone back to using it and I believe I have found a good balance. This image was taken at: 17mm f8 ISO 100 1/200

    West End View [Take Two]

    A view of the Perth CBD from Parliament House. No ND filter was used for the above image one since it was already very dark by this time, although for the below image my 10 stop B+w was used.
