Join me in experiencing my adventures and excitement on my photo shoots, as I unwrap my journey involved in capturing images that linger, whilst reflecting spectacular scenery that soak the soul with peace and hope!
This location, Wellington Point, Brisbane, is one of my all-time favourite destinations to visit and to capture shots.
It is iconic with fishermen, dog walkers and photographers. During the winter months the conditions are superb. Clouds add an interesting dynamic. In the past, have reduced my tripod legs, with my camera inching above the surface of the water. During conditions like that, the light is literally out of this world.
With regards to weather conditions during photo shoots, I’m comfortable with rough seas, where concentration is paramount, as I’m with serene scenes. The thrill of big waves is incredibly exciting, where you cannot be distracted for a second, but in moments such as in this image, the time spent was soothing and reflective, with impressive reflections.
The morning I arrived at Wellington Point, instinctively I knew it was going to be a great photo shoot. I have learnt to read the clouds before sunrise. As soon as first light broke across the horizon, I was aware of light that would linger. It was intense but also woven with a softness that draws one into the image.
Wearing waders is an advantage. The tide was low during this shoot which enabled me to wade a considerable distance to capture something special. As you can see, the water was smooth, particularly as I use photographic filters which introduce depth of colour and soften the effect of the water.
When I packed away my photographic equipment, I sensed I’d managed to capture something special.
