There is a loop from Kings Canyon that passes some great spots, Simsons Gap is one of them, This photo was taken fairly early on in the morning with a Nikon D700 and a 17-35mm Nikon Lense. A real Australiana Feel.

Venice Beach Los Angeles

Posted by Richard on September 13, 2018 at 11:40 PM Comments comments (0)

This Photo was taken on the back streets of Venice Beach. My Freind Carlos Pacini took us there while we had some time in LA, It was great to see him and also enjoy this area with him, its a shame we were stil struggling with the flu. On the way back to the we saw a bunch of motorbikes doing monos down the highway.

I used my Leica M9 with a Leica 35mm Sumicrom, set at F5.6 and shot at 1/1000sec at ISO 160. Colour Balance was daylight. The image was edited in Lightroom fors, mainly to get the framing, contrast adn sharpening done. I then did some minor editing in Elements, Adjustment of saturation, and midtone adjustments.

I like the play of shadows in this image.

Yosemite 2

Posted by Richard on September 13, 2018 at 7:15 AM Comments comments (0)

These Black and White images taken at Yosemite in 2012. They were taken on a my nikon D700. The first photo was using a 17-35mm Nikon Zoom Lense, and the second using a 70-200mm Nikon Zoom Lense. I used a nuetral graduated filter so there was less contrast in the sky with the first image. I used about a 1/640sec exposure for the second image at a focal length of 180mm. These versions were edited in Lightroom, using the black and white conversions. I had one previous versions using the Nik Effects Silver effects Pro, but I no longet have this software available to me. I think the control Nik Effects gives is supperior tonaly to these verions. If you look at the Oregon photo looking out to Canon Beach you may be able to see a difference in Processing.

Japanese street shots

Posted by Richard on September 12, 2018 at 2:45 AM Comments comments (0)

These images are some of my favourite japanese street images. The first is a group having lunch in Tokyo, from memory the food was excellent, I just wish i knew how to get back there.  The second photo was taken through the window if a restaurant while looking to dine in Kyoto. The light was very low, so i am pleased with the result. The third one was at a train station in Tokyo.

Uluru Dusk

Posted by Richard on September 12, 2018 at 1:55 AM Comments comments (0)

These photos were taken way back in about 2010. The problem with winter in the red center is that the skies are clear. Therefore a lack of drama, but you have to deal with what the weather is when you travel. The thing about Uluru (formerly known as Ayers Rock) is that the colour s constantly changing during the day. These phots promise a small sample of the colour changes.
