01 May Sydney PhotoWALK this Sunday!
a Fun and Free event
Bring your mum! Seriously, this is a family friendly fun filled frolic of photographers (try and say that fast ten times in a row!) so bring everyone…
The walk will kick off at 4pm for a meet and greet outside of the IMAX cinema and we will slowly wander around Darling Harbour. There is plenty to capture here… CLICK HERE to register to attend.
Today’s iCandy – Russell Falls Tasmania
Russell Falls is in Mount Field National Park, Tasmania, I just love capturing waterfalls. They can actually be quite challenging to capture if the light isn’t just right. But when it all comes together it is tranquil and peaceful. i was staying in the National Park, they have a campground with power and all… I got up early after a night of rain to shoot the waterfall and as I was walking out of the forest, a couple walked past me and said “we thought we were first to the falls this morning!”… you have to get up early to beat the photographers!
The Technical Mumbo Jumbo
[tabbed tabs=”Camera|Mode|ISO|Aperture|Shutter|Lens|Filter|Other info”] [tab] I used my trusty D800 for this one [/tab] [tab] I used Aperture Priority (aka AV) [/tab] [tab] ISO100 – I always shoot as low as possible [/tab] [tab] f22 – This gave me a slower shutter speed [/tab] [tab] 5 seconds – this makes sure I captured the water movement[/tab] [tab] Nikon 14-24mm lens [/tab] [tab] I used my Lee SW150 kit – A little trick to reduce the amount of light entering the lens is to use 2 soft grads, one upside down and blend them in the middle [/tab] [tab] All I have done is sharpen things a little in Lightroom 4, added clarity, vibrance and contrast.
