Arrghh! Frustratingly, I think its almost two weeks since I’ve been able to get out and take some photo’s. You know, ‘life’ just gets in the way sometimes. So, rather than let another day pass without updating this little blog, I’ve decided to plunder the digital vault and put up some shots I took a number of months ago. These photo’s come from a very early sunrise shoot I did at Bronte beach again – so early, the moon was still up blinking brightly when I had arrived. Thankfully, the sunrise was quite a treat too.
Canon 7D | EF 70-200L & EF 24-105L | Handheld | ISO: 100 | Post: Aperture
Above: Setting moon. From memory, I took this shot handheld @ 200mm. I’ve cropped in quite a bit here so the moon wasn’t lost in the frame. This shot has had the most work done on it in post. It took a bit to remove the noise from the sky, plus, I’ve sharpened the moon a fair bit – you could clearly notice that it was quite ‘soft’ owing to the fact it was shot at 1/100 sec.
Above: There’s something quite soothing about watching the first sunrise surfers. They did a lot of bobbing around that morning as the swell was pretty flat.
Above: I dragged the shutter here at 1/5 sec. I was actually really happy with how this turned out. Yes, you can call me strange.
Above: Back to the trusty EF 24-105L lens here. Originally, this shot was taken in Landscape orientation but I think it works much better like this.
