To the Point

Having not shot a seascape in over a month, and with a predicted (and actual) craptacular sky yesterday morning foiling my plans for a Saturday dawn shoot, I felt a bit itchy this afternoon. I checked SkippySky, and the forecast was for some interesting cloud cover, so I headed down to a local seascaping haunt... [more]

Kiama North Rock Shelf

A few months ago, I discovered a fantastic seascape photography location on the New South Wales south coast, which appears not to have been visited by many photographers in the photographic communities of which I am a part. I have visited this location twice - first with seascaping buddies Sonia, Steve, Malcolm and Don ... [more]

Twilight Outcrop: Turimetta Revisited

Of late I have not been shooting many seascapes. My last magical session was at Narrabeen on the 7th of April, and I have only shot two small seascape sessions since then. My lack of activity can be attributed to a combination of a lack of time and a lack of motivation.  For me, photography... [more]

Same Subject... Different Conditions

As a landscape/seascape photographer, sometimes one returns to a previously photographed location in order to shoot the same subject again under the 'right' conditions (or different conditions). And sometimes it happens unintentionally. Here is an image of a large rock I photographed at Narrabeen a fortnight ago under a magical dawn sky: As a point... [more]

So far I have processed 13 images I would consider 'keepers' (ie, of a sufficiently high standard that I would publish them).  For a fussy shooter as indeed I am, that is an extraordinarily high number of images for a single...

Magical Morning at Narrabeen

This morning I headed out for a dawn shoot at Narrabeen with some seascaping buddies. After checking SkippySky during the week, and again last night, it looked promising. As we made our way to the rock shelf in the darkness, I could see an intense red glow near the horizon.  My experience tells me that... [more]

The Shoot that Almost Was Not

This morning before dawn I headed out for a seascape shooting session. I was originally scheduled to head to the Northern Beaches district yesterday morning, but I knew that that the sky was going to be completely plain, so I decided to abandon that shoot. Photographically, I dislike cloudless skies and will not even get... [more]

Time Changes Perspective

Often when reviewing images upon my return from a photography session, I have a clear idea of which images are the winners that will be processed and published, and which will be skipped. However, I have found - especially after one recent photoshoot - that some time away from one's images can change one's perspective... [more]
