"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs." Ansel Adams

Sneak Peak…

I took this photo at the local winery, out of the car window with the telephoto, just before being asked to leave… It’s only one image would have been good if I could have stacked 4 images but I didn’t have time.

There are lots of red and yellow trees here at the moment, and there has been some great light. I have been out shooting last few mornings and arvos and was able to shoot the best sunrise I have ever seen!!! Only problem at that sunrise was my blue hands with the temp at zero degrees! Have also had some interesting fog covering the paddocks. The local mountain is often covered by clouds and my step brother and I were walking through the forest and saw some very eerie shots.

Will have my work cut out once back in Perth next Wednesday, but I can’t wait to start putting the photos together!

Happy Shooting!

  1. Looking forward to seeing your results Dylan, photographing something different (ie beaches all the time) should be a nice thrill as well. Enjoy your shooting holiday.

    Yeah it’s great shooting something other than trigg and cott! haha
    It’s a good challenge since I have very little experience with this kind of scenery.

    Hows your site coming along?

    Nice one Dylan, nice to see someone else getting images of some arbour. I tried a few stitches like this (back ground out of focus) but the wind moved the leaves (of my tree) too much and PT GUI couldn’t work it. Enjoy the rest of your trip, can’t wait to see some more from the East!

    Cheers Matt,
    PTGui might be able to stitch your photo if you put in some well placed control points…
    It’s good fun out here! Have been shooting everyday, and have found with the undulating landscape getting the right light is much more difficult than what I am used to.

    Cheers Beau,
    As I have mentioned my sensor is basically covered with dirt and little clear spots have been rubbed away!
    There will be a lot of time spent cloning the dust spots out of the sky, but anything on the country land will blend in no problems!

    Went out fr another shoot this morning but it was a very average sunrise. the spot was about a 40 minute drive from where I am and the whole trip home was spent in the thickest fog I have ever seen. Hopefully will have similar fog tomorrow so I can go into the forest on the local mountain for some different shots.

    Cheers mate
