Blue Stone Bay, Freycinet

Blue Stone Bay, Freycinet

Early morning at Blue stone bay in Tasmania's Freycinet National Park on the East coast.

 

Accessible only by 4 wheel drive, we had arrived in the dark and stumbled our way down to the water to set up for dawn

The beautiful rounded boulders are a perfect counter to the rugged coastline and incoming tide. I remember that it was cold that morning and the rocks were slippery . My brother David was with me so I sent him out onto the rocks to add a human element to the picture

Best time for baby photographs?

Best time for baby photographs?

THE FIRST YEAR

In the first year, time seems to speed up and slow down all at the same time. Days roll into one amid late night feeds, day time sleeps ,and an amazing number of nappy changes. Every day there are ground breaking moments: the first smile, the first sleeping through the night, first steps, words, and teeth. Let us capture these moments that are the initial stages of a journey of a lifetime.

Slices of Life -Photographing Children

Slices of Life -Photographing Children
Childhood
 
Both parents and children have to adjust to the influences of school, and it is a bitter sweet period for the parents as you realise that your child now has a part of their life in which you are not involved. They are learning new skills and wanting to use them, and it is much easier for your photographer to build a relationship and to capture those special expressions and moments. At this stage, we ask the parents to take a step back so that the photographer has a chance to engage with the child in one-on-one conversation. Once this is happening, all those emotions and expressions are never far behind.

Photo Tips -Neutral Density Filters

Photography Tips -Neutral Density Filters

We all love those magic hours just around sunrise and sunset. Thats when the light is at its most amazing and everything looks great. But what about when the light isn't fantastic? In the middle of the day, you can do other stuff, or have a nap, but if like me, you want to keep taking pictures than a neutural density filter may be just the thing.  The basic job of a ND filters is to cut down the amount of light reaching your sensor without affecting the colour, and they come in various densities. The one I use the most is a 400x filter which cuts around 10 stops of light and allows you to use very low shutterspeeds.

less light entering your lens means that you need a longer shutter speed and so as a consequence, you can make images like this, the water moves during the exposure to give that soft dreamlike quality

Of course you will need a sturdy tripod so that the rest of the image remains sharp, and it also helps to make sure that there is no extraneous light entering through the eye piece
