LEExposure 06 Gallery Feature

Hi all, it's been a very long time between posts. I actually have some news to share. Three of my images were selected to feature in the gallery section of the LEExposure 06 E-Mag. I thank the staff at Lee Filters for asking me to submit photos to show.

My photos and commentary appear on pages 46-49. You can download or view on the web at this website

Here is sample of the gallery below. For higher res or to download please go to their website.

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.

 

Spoon Bay Sunrise - Focus Meet

Spoon Bay Sunrise

I had a great morning with the Focus group today at Spoon Bay hosted by Wayne Gibson. As you can see we had some great light and great location. This was a new location for me and one i'll be visiting again.

Rocks @ Spoon Bay - Central Coast NSW Australia.

I thought I might share some settings and processing I did in order to capture this seascape. I don't normally do this as I think you need to do what you need to do in order to present the images for viewing. In camera and post. I do realise though that there are new photographers out there who want to know what others are doing.

Camera Settings:

  • Canon 6D
  • ISO 100
  • Aperture f/8
  • Shutter 1/3 Sec. 
  • Lee Filter 3 stop Hard Graduated Neutral Density

Post Processing:

In Adobe Camera Raw I did basic fixes like. Lens Correction, Straightening the horizon, White Balance & Auto Levels as you can see below. Remember a Raw file has all of the Camera's processing settings removed and then you have to add (to your liking) the settings back including sharpening

Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 Layers Panel:

Besides the processing I did in the below Panel I removed a ship on the horizon and some bird droppings from the rock as I thought they were distracting to the view.

I also ran a sharpening script from Tony Kuyper.
