Summer Stroll on Cottesloe Beach

cotteslesummer

Well it looks like everyone here is writing about Summer and how much they miss it and how close it now is, so I’d thought I’d post another photo of Cottesloe Beach.   This is another shot taken in summer, again it was a really warm night and after taking this shot I put my stuff into the car and then jumped into the water myself.   Its so relaxing being in the water late evening or night time, one of my favourite times to dive is at night.    Anyhow back to the main story, hurry up Summer and bring on some wicked sunsets. 

Thanks for viewing and comments are appreciated!!!

Where is the light?

pointpiquetpano

Hi Everyone,

This was taken whilst down at Point Piquet in Dunsborough recently, it was one of the first night’s that I was there and over almost two weeks it was almost the only night that I saw any clouds!   The only other time I saw a good sunset was when I gave up going out in the evenings and decided to relax and have a beer.   Well as I sat around with friends having a beer you can guess what happened, yep one of the best sunsets I’ve seen in months popped up.    What can you do but be patient?   

So what can a landscape photographer do in times like these?   Is everyone else kicking back enjoying the summer months and not worrying about the lack of light?   I know myself I’m going out there despite the light, testing out new ideas and trying to get different POV’s on popular subjects so that when the light does come back I’ll be able to head out and start shooting away knowing the sort of shot that I’m trying to achieve.  

Hope you are all getting better light than me,

Jamie Paterson

Starstruck……. Again!!!

grasstrees

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to 2009, I hope its a great photography year for everyone.   I’m really amped up to take lots of photos this year and to produce some great quality work.   This photo was taken down south over the past few weeks, the light down there was terrible so I decided to do some night work instead.   I drove out to these grasstrees at 11pm and I must admit everytime a grass leaf would move or a tree would rustle I felt like jumping straight back into the car.     After about an hour I heard some weird noises coming from the bush so I decided to hop in the car and call it a night.

I was really pleased with this shot and night photography has really grabbed my attention for the time being.    Has anyone else been considering night photography during summer whilst there are no clouds?

Enjoy!

Mosman Bay 10 – Jamie 1 – Finally!!!

mosmanboatshed

I was fortunate enough the other night to catch up with Neal from Spool Photography and Kirk Hille of Kirk Hille Photography for an end of year shoot.    We started off at Narrows Bridge and hung around there for awhile but the light was not good to us unfortunately.    After watching the sunset we attempted to take a few photos under the bridge with higher isos to see what happened.   The results were pleasing but not sensational.   We then decided to play iso wars against the Mosman Bay boatsheds which have been my nemisis for the year.

Neal and I cranked up the isos on our camera and smiled with delight at the results.   Well at least I smiled,  I was wondering how much Neal had to drink as he was jumping in the air, yelling obsceneties and giggling like a school girl.  My guess is that he was happy with his Canon 5D MkII.    I think its awesome that I’m taking these sorts of photos late at night now, but when does one sleep?   I blame this latest lack of sleep squarely at the feet of Christian Fletcher, up until now I’d be heading home an hour after the sun set, but it was 10:30pm last night when I headed home and I was still tempted to fire off a few more shots at some other locations on the way home.  

Well now thanks to Flemming and Christian I can now shoot 24hrs a day!!!

Enjoy,

Sunday Evening Christmas Spectacular – 14th Dec 2008 @ 6:30pm

santa

Well its that time of the year for our annual Christmas Photography Spectacular!!!    Obviously all are welcome, kids, dogs, cats and yes even partners. :-)    It will be this Sunday the 14th of December 2008 and we shall meet at 6:30pm.    The idea is to just meet up and say hello to everyone before we discretely ask Clint to leave the party at 8pm so that we can capture a decent sunset.   Hopefully you can all make it, its been a fantastic photography year for all of us and we’ve all posted some amazing images so let’s celebrate that together.

Since most of us have met each other through our association with Christian he will be beaming down a special message via satellite TV dressed in a Santa suit (okay so this still has to be negotiated).

Anyhow it will be great to catch up the the Perth Landscape Photography Crew.

As for where?   Now that is a surprise and you’re going to have to checking back, the location will be posted in the next 24hrs.

Self Portrait @ iso800

selfportrait

So this was another photo that I quickly took last night, its called Deepwater Point Jetty, I decided to make it a self portrait.    Again this is straight out of the camera with absolutely nothing done to it, other than being shrunk a little to squeeze onto wordpress of course.   Obviously, I had one of those pesky oragnge lights on behind me but with a few adjustments in PS that would be solved.    So I think the iso800 performance of my 1Ds MkIII is definitely on par with the Canon 5d MkII.  Phew!!!!   Anyway it was just me tinkering and having a good time.   Over the weekend I’ll probably duck out one night and actually do a proper shoot especially since the oon is so close to being full.

Hhmmmm night photography sounds like a good excuse for a beer, unless your Mel of course.

Enjoy!
