FINAL RESULT

Untitled_Panorama1

My images were taken in Williams town, approximately 30 altogether, in groups of around 6. The first 3 images were taken from one group, and the final 2, from another group. I selected my images, opened them together in photoshop, opened photo merge, selected the existing photos, and stitched them together. After the images were merged into one image, I cropped and straightened, adjusted the colour a little, and saved the initial photoshop image as a jpeg. Everything previous to the final image, were the steps i basically followed.

CAMERA & CAPTURE – LENS PROPERTIES ( 3/11 )

DSC_0123

 

24mm. ISO – 800. f 3.8. 1/60 This image was taken quite close to the subject to get in what was required. Head and shoulders. Its out of proportion, there is too much back ground.

 

DSC_0125

 

50 mm. ISO 800. f 4.8. 1/60.

Again, I needed to be quite close to the subject, the amount of back ground, opposed to the subject, is in proportion, though for a portrait, I could not get close enough, at 50mm.

 

DSC_0127

 

130 mm. ISO 800. f 5.6. 1/60.

I like the end result at 130mm. I was able to be a non imposing distance away from the subject, as well as being able to get what was required into the image.

Final image – URBAN LANDSCAPE. ISO- 200. f 4. 1/3000 sec.

This image was taken at Docklands at around 4pm. The sun is still out, it is still nice and clear here, there are bright reflections from above in the water, and in the buildings glass to the right of the image. Due to the light not being so strong at this time of day, there is also a lot of contrast and shadow, though the all over image is still very clear.

What i thought made this an imposing urban image, was the glass building on the right, in perspective to everything else in the image, its a very large structure, although the image is quite busy, with the building, the cranes, and bridge in the background, the lighting on the main focus- the moored boats in the river, and the clear blue sky make it quite tranquil.

Screen shot before I straightened,cropped and sharpened the image.

My image is of Urban landscape, from Southbank of the Yarra, city backdrop and bridge. This image was taken at approximately 3 pm on a very clear day. There is contrast, and i like the waters reflection. The task was to capture an imposing natural or urban landscape image, here i think that i have achieved a little of both with the urban being the structure of the bridge and stacked buildings behind, along with the Yarra, and the greenery along the banks. The image was shot at ISO 200 / f 11 / @ 1/500 sec, postproduction of the image was very minimal, I cropped out a small gap left in front of the post in the far left hand side of the image, straightened a fraction and sharped the image a little.

Camera & Capture – Sport shoot ( 8 / 11)

IMG_3914

IMG_3917

PART 1 – Sports shoot: Above are my two inspirational images, I have chosen to do my sport shoot on yoga. I think the use of black and white in these two images make them more striking, it really highlights the subjects shape. I don’t see any challenges in getting these photographs shot. The top image is of a masculine person posing in the dark, with soft lighting, highlighting the pose. The second image if shown in colour would definitely not have had the same effect, but looks quite simple with the contrasting colours of the sky behind the silhouette of the subject, posing on a simple, clean stretch of grass.

Photographers equipment list: Having chosen to do my shoot on yoga, I will set my equipment up at the back of the classroom, then the front. The equipment i will be using is my tripod, camera, zoom lens and speed light, as the lighting in the room is quite dark.

My images – My daughter Jess, has done gymnastics, and found the poses a bit of fun. I shot these in my spare room, and used various effects on them.

Camera & Capture – Night shoot / city scape – 7/11

  • Photo 1 – ISO 200 / f8 / 0.5 sec. Photo 2 – ISO 200 / f8 / 0.5 sec. Photo 3 – ISO 200 / f18 / 6.0 sec. Photo 4 – ISO 200 / f8 / 13.0 sec. Photo 5 – ISO 200 / f8 / 20.0 sec. Photo 6 – ISO 200 / f 5.6 / 5.0 sec.
  • My night shoot was done in Williams town, from across Port Phillip bay, of the city scape, with the images being taken between 5 – 6 pm. Unfortunately the weather turned a little, it became quite dull and cloudy, with no direct sun light and lots of wind, which caused a bit of blur in many of the photos i took on this occasion. As it became darker the artificial lighting across the city come out nicely. I used a tripod and most shots were long exposures, using the cameras timer.
