Cape Naturaliste

Hi Everyone,

Please remember to subscribe to the blog via the button on the right hand side.  Its a new blog and you may not get alerted to new posts. :-)

 

This shot was taken just down from a spot on Cape Naturaliste called Other Side of The Moon during Winter, hence the dramatic skies.  Its a small walk to get to but very worth it.  There are heaps of rock formations close to the waterline which makes for seascape photography paradise!

 

Almost every time I’ve been its been deserted and I’ve had the whole place to myself even though I’ve quite often spent hours photographing the place at any one time.  Get down there and check it out!  You won’t be disappointed.

 

Thanks,

 

Jamie

Pristine Green

seascape photography

Wow.  What a crazy year 2012 has been already!   I’ve managed to sell a few photos from the galleries that represent me and I’ve just done a trip to Dallas in Texas which totally blew me away, though I could’ve done without all the time in the air.

This photo was actually taken well over a year ago, and I’m not sure why I’ve sat on it so long as I really like it.   Can anyone guess who it is in the photo?  You know who you are so please don’t let the cat out of the bag. :-)

Christian was just up the road when we were taking this shot and he wasn’t amused when he saw this shot as he’d never seen this beach like this before.  Woo Hoo.  We managed to CF. :-)

Thanks,

Jamie

Boronup Forest

Hi Guys,

Its been ages since I’ve been down south and I was trawling through my down south images today when I came across this photo of Boronup Forest that I took whilst out with Mark Stothard last year.  I’ve tried doing a few different techniques to it and I quite like the way it turned out.

Hope you guys do to.

Thanks,

Smiths Beach

Hi Everyone,

A few months ago I was down south just walking along Smiths Beach when I came across this scene before me.  It was just a nice secluded part of the world to be in, so of course I had to try and capture it.

I was trying to time it so that I would capture a wave just before it smashed into the rocks so I’m pretty stoked with this shot.

The unusual clouds are what really drew me to this shot.  I hope you guys enjoy it as well.

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Smiths Point

yallingup, landscape photography, seascape photography, australian photographer,

Last Saturday I was fortunate enough to join Mark, Christian and Michael on a shoot at Smiths Point.  It was awesome fun and we had some amazing light present itself during the sunrise.   The other three headed up some huge rocky face and I decided to stick with familiar territory to me, the wonderful and amazing ocean.

I’m glad I did as I able to witness the best sunrise I’ve seen in at least six months.  If you’d like to see more seascape photography please visit my site.

Thanks,

Holga Visits Injidup

Learn Something New Everyday

Who is Holga when she is in town and why is she visiting Injidup?  Why am I even writing about her?  I bought a Holga camera ages ago and though I had the best of intentions of using it a lot more than I currently do, I just haven’t.   I do though really like the Holga / Lomography look, for some reason it has a real appeal to me.  Maybe its because they create a heavy vignette, perhaps the crazy colours, the heavy noise, the soft focus or just the sheer unpredictability of the camera.

I have been experimenting quite a bit in Photoshop this weekend, on some of my old glamour shots and on my landscapes and its been heaps of fun.  Its good to really stretch ourselves creatively and see what we come up with.

I decided to create a Holga / Lomography look for this photo of Injidup using Photoshop and I’m really pleased with the way it turned out.   I know its not for everyone, but I really was just having a tinker around and thought I’d share it with you guys.

When was the last time you sat down and just did some crazy experimeting on your photos?

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Double Rainbow – Injidup

Yep.  Another file that has been sitting on my Mac for about one and a half years, not because I didn’t like it but just because I forgot about it.   I’d been setting up at Yallingup main break for a sunset shoot, but couldn’t shake the feeling that I really wasn’t in the right place.   Something kept telling me to head on over to Injidup Point and I decided to listen and jump in the car with only a few minutes to spare to get there.

As I was driving into the carpark I was presented with this scene.  A double rainbow as a rain shower was passing.   I stopped the car, grabbed the camera and popped off this shot before heading down to the beach.  I’m pretty happy now that I took the shot as I reckon its a pretty cool shot.   The afternoon glow from the setting sun along with the rainbows is just another visual splendor that I’ve managed to experience at Injidup.

Injidup Sunset

Another shot of Injidup Beach!   What more can I say about the place other than I love it and its magical.  On this particular evening the waves were just gently lapping at the beach instead of being hammered by the large waves that normally come through here like a freight train.

Just on the other side of the rocks were a large group of kids jumping into the water and swimming and splashing around, just having a great time.   Its good to see that I’m not the only one who recharges at Injidup.

I can’t wait to get down here during winter to capture some winter storms.

Thanks,

Injidup Beach Rocks

Finally!  I made it back to my beloved Injidup Beach, my first trip I think in almost five months.  I must admit I really didn’t use the camera too much, I just strolled up and down the beach and soaked up the atmosphere, and as always it was totally relaxing.

The great thing about Inji is that its always changing.   This time because its the end of summer and because it was a full moon the tide was right out and there was lots of sand covering the normally really big rocks.   Usually these rocks that I’m standing on are being smashed by really big waves and you’d never get a chance to stand on them without being swamped or being swept away.   I love this look but personally I can’t wait until the sand is swept away and we get the big seas thumping against the rocks again.

Did Perth get any clouds this weekend at all?

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

Injidup Beach

Hi Everyone,

Now that the exhibition is over I have a bit more time to relax and head out and starting taking photos again.  It seems like ages since I last headed out on a photography adventure.   Now before I tell you about this photo please make sure you go and check out Andrea Green’s new blog and say hi.

This shot was taken August last year just as the sun was breaking.  There had been stacks of rain and I hadn’t managed to really pull off any shots at all so I decided to head over to my spiritual home Injidup Beach because it almost always delivers.   Well I definitely wasn’t disappointed, as the sun began to rise I was presented with this awesome stormy scene and the wet rocks were throwing up a great red.    The 1Ds copped an absolute soaking on this day and it still managed to deliver.

I really think its time to take a trip back down south soon and check out a few new areas that I managed to scout out just before Christmas and soak up the whole South West atmosphere again.  This photo was taken using F11, ISO50 with a 20sec exposure.

Have a great long weekend everyone,

Jamie Paterson
