There were some big waves at Nth Curl Curl a few weekends ago, the sun hit this 1 set perfectly as it crashed on the rocks but after that the light went flat and i went home for breakfast.
Couple of shots from an early morning at Shelly Beach in Sydney.
I think i took too many cameras with me but luckily the carpark is really close.
While waiting for a long exposure I played around with an infrared converted D70s (self portrait, pic 4) and also shot a few rolls of 120 with my old Hasselblad, its film so I have to wait and see what they come out like but I love using that camera as it has the best finder ever (pic 3) and film is awesome.
Got up early last weekend and went down to Turimetta beach for sunrise, was a little disapointed with the cloud cover, when i left my house at 4:30am the clouds overhead were nice and wispy (40 mins from beaches) and at the beach there were NO clouds except the band along the horizon 🙁 . Im still waiting for a really dramatic sky so will have a few more early mornings at Turimetta in the future. I liked these images best.
I have always wanted to try a long exposure from under a Pier/Wharf with the waves going to mist. I recently bought a B+W 10 stop ND filter after staring at Michael Levin’s work for hours so i could have a go at long exposures during the day.
While on Holidays in Nth Queensland i came accross this pier in Palmcove and for once i had a tripod with me and a few minutes to spare, i took 3 frames and this was the best, its not super sharp as i had to hold the shutter for 210 seconds with my finger (forgot my release cable), but i think it came out pretty well. I am definitely planning to use the ND110 for some more photos soon.
Ive been taking my IR converted Nikon D70s to work lately, i love how it can make boring midday lunchtime light look interesting.
Here are some of my favorite from a photowalk a few days ago.
