Recently I entered 6 images into the Epson Pano Awards. Up against some amazing landscape photographers, I was surprised to see that three came back with bronze, and one with sliver!
Here’s a short clip I’ve put together from 5D MkII video and time lapse. The Barcoo shire is an area in western Queensland where you’ll find plenty of incredible scenery and very few people! Being a photographer dealing with video files and time lapse seems to be frustrating, but rewarding! This was a lot of fun to shoot, but definitely an eye opener into the epic world of time lapse and HD video. Click here to watch HD in Vimeo.
Here are some images from a place in Australia that seems like the only spot not being ravaged by natural disaster! Floods here in South Queensland, floods in Victoria, cyclones up north, fires in Perth… I hope these images might cheer up some in stormy, wet and windy places! Taken recently on a quick trip to Karijini National Park in the Pilbara.
Landscape photography from the air really is the next best thing. I took this image on the way back from an aerial shoot over a power station near Karratha, and was lucky to have a pilot that was was keen for some sight seeing! This is Pannawonica Hill & the Robe River, just outside of the mining town Pannawonica. Not much to see in the town, but the scenery here is quite unique for the Pilbara, almost Monument Valley looking. I love the depth the light adds to this shot.
With cloudy flat skies, comes the need to think outside the square! Stuck with a week of shooting under think cloud cover in western Queensland, I started experimenting with the automatic exsposure bracketing, then blending manually in Photoshop. A few samples here- 28 facebookers voted the top image, 12 preferred bottom!
A long time in the making this has been, I’m excited to let you all know I’ve completed my new website!
