Its rare when you come away from a shoot with more than a 1 or 2 shots you are happy with, but even more rare when you get heaps you are over the moon with!
Yesterday down at Mt Henry bridge was one of those days and there are still more to come I haven’t looked at yet!
Every now and then people come out of the blue and do cool things and this last night and this morning was one of those moments.
Jamie Paterson sent me a text last night telling me I should get down to this location as he had seen a cool composition and wanted to see what I would do with it.
So I set out and was not disappointed!
This was a 4 image stitch which led onto a morning of gold down the river a bit.
Thanks very much for the heads up Jamie….this mornings shoot set me up for a great day. I’ll have to think of something cool to repay the favour!
So, I guess the subliminal message is to get out there and do something nice for someone…just coz!
I have just received a new backpack for my Phantom 4 Drone thanks to Kym Peacock from DJI and Saul Frank from Camera Electronic.
Not to mention Reece Tripi for picking it up for me.
The backpack is certainly a step up from the previous model which was available for the Phantom 3. The previous model had a similar shape, something like a Ninja Turtle backpack, but the inner section was made of Poly Styrene foam.
As is with the Phantom 4, the new backpack has had some major improvements from the 3 version. The outer pack is now made from quality fabric rather than the harder shell that the 3 backpack had.
The inner support is where the real gold is. It is all made from a silky material and soft foam inner with velcro tab supports every where it is needed.
It has the capacity to carry spare batteries, the charging kit, my new lume cubes (I will be reviewing these soon) and the holders for the cubes.
So, internally the drone itself, the controller and the iPad all have their own sections to keep them snug and safe.
And finally the other upgrade from the 3 backpack is the comfort straps and adjustment as you would expect these days with any back pack, which is a considerable upgrade from the Phantom 3 backpack.
All in all, a solid edition to my Phantom 4 kit and thoroughly recommended for any Phantom 4 owner.
Contact Saul at Camera Electronic for more details.
I am getting good at juggling the Nikon and the Drone controls…in fact I now have a double Rapid strap so that I can carry a wide angle lens on one back and a zoom on the other and still fly the drone!
So, I shot this one before launching the drone yesterday!
On the way to work this morning I noticed a large car carrier coming into port so I set out to the South mole and set the Phantom 4 up for a quick fly.
No doubt about the aerial views you can achieve with these drones.
We had a fair bit of rain Down South yesterday and rather than do the normal couch lizard gig I decided to head out to Boranup again following the rain so that I was there just after it subsided.
The result was lots of water droplets to capture the light in the backlit shots and a lot of colour in the trees as the water brought out the colour nicely.
I spent a very relaxing 2 hours walking the ridge line in the forrest and simply taking in the beauty and taking photos.
A very nice way to spend a rainy day!
Good morning everyone!
I decided to head out to Quindalup jetty this morning and managed to capture some colour before the clouds and the rain set in.
A 5 image stitch and pretty happy with the result.
I shot this a couple of weeks ago with my mate Murf.
This is a 20 image double layer stitch!
I recently had the privilege of meeting the artist behind the amazing art work appearing on the Eastern and Western wall of East West designs.
His name is Graeme Richards from Alfresco Designs…www.alfrescodesigns.com
He tells me that he is a graphic artist from Christchurch in NZ with no real formal Art training…but by the look of what he can create I think he doesn’t need any training in any case!
Stunning work and amazing talent…and well worth a look.
Graeme is putting the finishing touches on the Eastern wall and I think he has really captured the vision of a ‘beach theme’ with this side of the building.
If you would like to see it for yourself the location is on the Southern side of South Terrace in South Fremantle and the name of the business is East West designs.
Another beautiful sunrise this morning for those who managed to get out of bed in time!
This time over the Attadale park land looking over the city.
The golden light only lasted a few minutes before the cloud cover won the battle with the light, but I managed to capture this before it did!
