Flood Study

A study of scenes captured during floods, April 2015.

I have always wanted to create a series where all the images captured were created and processed in a similar way. This is marks the first attempt in doing so.

 

Broken & Scarred

Here is a new image i created over the weekend called "Broken & Scarred". I have seen this jetty online before and I knew I had to find it and go take a look for myself. So I looked up where I thought it was on Google Maps and it didn't take long to find.

When I turned up to the location you have to go through a set of gates to a private Hospital and I noticed on the sign that the gates are open from 6 am to 6 pm, well I looked at the clock and It was 5.20pm. I thought shit i'd better get moving as I knew I was going for long exposures and would only be able to capture 1 or 2 frames before I had to make it back out of there. Low and behold I made it back out just before 6pm. Few.

Here is the result of one of the frames.

Ocean Thoughts

Ocean Thoughts....

After having some personal issues with social media, bland photos in my streams (social media noise, should i give it a rest) getting the shits with my progress (business and printing) I think I have pull another image out of my arse, that hopefully someone will like. 

Now i'm adding to your digital noise sorry.

About the image..titled "Ocean Thoughts"

These nice jagged rocks are just to the right of Camel Rock and while I was waiting for the others to come back from around there I decided one last image before I headed off for breakfast. 

I was looking at them and I can just see before I even start what it's going to look like in my mind, playing it out in my head. I could see the leading line from the creek out to the rocks with the flow of clouds streaking by.

Tip: If setting up a tripod on these outlets make sure you push down on the tripod legs to steady it because the water flowing will soften the sand and make the tripod sink down during your exposure and therefore the static subjects will blur.
