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


Well was out earlier this week with a mate going from spot to spot with the camera waiting for breaks in the rain. Went down to Matilda Bay and shot these jetty things for the first time. I actually only took this one sequence and then left so this is all i got. I wish I took another few and perfected it, but ahwell!


Will re-shoot this spot soon when some more clouds roll through!

  3. Tis a great shot, mate. The clouds could do with a bit a bit more contrast, although Thats probably just my urge for drama talking.

    That jetty/pontoon really stands out. Great light and conditions Dylan. I am yet to get anything from this spot that I am really happy with. You’ve done bloody well….. PRICK!

  5. Sean you are probably right about extra contrast around the edges of the clouds but those highlight clouds will blow real bad is i add more contrast!

    Cheers Luke! Yeah the light was fantastic but like I said I took one sequence and left! (cause I am a cocky photographer!!!!)
    Luke mate are you going tomorrow night?

    Yerp. Feels a bit strange going to do a course that I have already done. As long as I come away with some more know how I’m a happy camper.

  7. Yeah this will be my second but I am really looking forward to it. I think this one will be a little different and will come away with some new knowledge on some new gear!

    Dylan I think it will be a better course as you and I went on the first one. I’m guessing Christian has an excellent feel on how to drive the course now so we may be able to pick up even more info than we did the first time around.

    Hey man, that’s a seriously nice photo! I like it.

    I’ve been concentrating a bit more on my web design as of late and am still keen to help you work on your main page if you want. I’m trying to set up a bit of a design portfolio so looking for some work to add to it. Let me know.

    Beau mate havent heard from you in a while!
    Yeah I would love to a bit of website transformation.
    I guess I would ideally like to start it from scratch and make it real professional! Send me an email sometime and we can work something out!

    Thanks for the photo comment too. This image is getting a way better response than I ever thought it would!
