One of a series I took of the moon rise on 19th Nov 2021 right at the end of the longest lunar eclipse in 200 years. I'd pre-planned the spot the previous day to get the moon rising between the buildings. This one where the moon is sitting perfectly on top of a building like a hat was frankly nothing but a bit of a lucky fluke.
Taken with a Nikon P1000, 500mm zoom, f 5, 160, auto ISO 400.

Taken November 19th 2021. That day was the longest lunar eclipse for the last 200 years and won't be that long again for the next 400. As the moon rose in Perth it was actually coming out of eclipse but still had some colour to it.
I'd found the perfect spot the day before to ensure a view between the buildings when the moon was still as low as possible in the sky.
The camera I used was a Nikon P1000 at maximum zoom of 3,000 mm. Other specs, f 8, 1100, auto ISO 800.

I was waiting for the sunset at the North Mole in Fremantle when I saw the lights popping through the clouds, creating a beautiful scene. Thankfully I was set up and testing my new circular polariser my wife had given me for Christmas. I was in definitely in the right place at the right time.

Taken with a Canon 6D and 16-35 F4 lens set to 16mm.

Took this on the way to pick my daughter up from school. Driven past it hundreds of times but the clouds looked amazing that day. This is why I always take my camera bag with me now when I go anywhere.

With the days getting longer and longer, it's a very early start to get a morning shot of the city. This image was taken a little before 5am from the Mends Street stretch of the South Perth Foreshore. Exposure time was 75secs to smooth out the river, focal length of 16mm to squeeze the full profile of the city in the shot and aperture of f22 to keep the buildings sharp.

BOM App said low winds around 9kmh. Prefer less than 6kmh for best reflections, so chose Kings Park to take shot. Also height advantage there. This shot taken from behind the lookout. Also took shots from behind the memorial.

Another moment looking up on my way to work. I used a sky replacement with one of my sunrise images taken earlier in the year. The replacement left a halo which I was tempted to remove but thought better of. It's not to everyone's taste but nothing in life is!

I have been experimenting with a slow shutter speed panning technique, trying to create interesting shapes and textures as the waves crash around the surfers.
For this image I was standing on the beach and shooting with a 400mm lens at 115sec, using a Neutral Density filter to bring my shutter speed down.

Have only been into photography for just under a year and picked up a cheap Canon 50D which I have been doing my apprenticeship on, that's how I see it anyways, whilst saving for a bigger sensor camera. This was shot at the end of winter and I really struggled to make it work but have recently drawn a lot of inspiration from Fan Ho and Robert Burke's black and white photography. Despite it not being street photography it really worked and definitely added a bit more interest to the shot. The ocean was taken with a 120 second exposure and the sky was changed with a shot taken with a faster exposure. Not only have I enjoyed the whole photography aspect but the editing as well, to make a shot as it appears in your head is extremely rewarding and addictive. I love how the change of shutter speed can calm an otherwise raging ocean.

Shot was taken on a Canon 50D, Canon 17-40 L lens at 40mm, 100 ISO and a 120 Second exposure.

This is the first time I've attempted a water-drop collision inside a bubble before. While I did get many successful contained collisions, I love the collapsing bubble in this shot.

Canon 6d Mkii with 24-105 f4 L series at 60mm
f16, ISO 400, 1sec exposure.
Shot in a dark room with a single Speedlite overhead.
Pluto trigger water dropper

A roasting dish was filled with water and about a cup of milk and pink food coloring. Water dropper with blue water is connected to Pluto trigger, trigger is allo connected to speed light via cable, camera via IR Infra-red and phone via bluetooth. Waterdropper calibrated to drop a large drop, then a small drop. A bubble is blown in the drop-zone on the water durface.

Press Play in plto app - the trigger automatically opens the camera shutter and drops 2 precise water drops through the bubble surface. The flash is on a time delay and fires after the second drop has impacted on the recoil caused by the first water drop. As the recoil and splash debris hit the inside of the bubble it has began to collapse just as the flash fired.

I love this shot, this could be my all time favorite collision.

This photo was taken at one of the best locations perth has to offer south perth foreshore
never does this spot disappoint, day or night.
I was out shooting long exposure shots all night and this was by far my favourite of the night.
With a little bit of tweaking in lightroom this photo turned out great

We arrived at the lavender farm around 6.45pm. We were hoping for golden hour, but mother nature decided to grace us with complete cloud cover, we weren't going to let that stop us, as we had just traveled an hour and half to get there. It just ment a little more time post processing.

I import the images into light room and start the process.
I will generally do the basic correction first ie WB, expose etc,
Then I used a salty sailor presets as a base to work from. From LightRoom I then move into Photoshop. Here I will do clean up first, get rid of unwanted distractions if any. For this particular image I worked on my colour and background first to achieve that golden hour look. To do this was a lot of tweaking, dodge and burning, curves and masking. I Then added the sun flare to bring a bit of impact to the over all image.

I Then move to working on my model. I use a PS plug in Panel called Retouch pro. Well worth every penny &128076 it has cut my ending time in half. With the panel I do basic skin smoothing, just enough to blend the highlights and shadows together better, bright and shapen the eyes, dodge and burn, aswell as enhancing her clothes.

When I am finally happy I move the image back into LR and add my finishing touches including, a final tone and sharpening.

At the end of the day Photography is an art. The camera is my easel, editing is my painting &9786.

Fireworks have always been my favorite subject for photography and I keep looking for interesting foregrounds.

The tricky part was to capture the rides and fireworks together, showcasing the rotation of the rides and the beautiful colors of the fireworks. I was able to achieve this by using long exposure photography technique using 2 secs exposure time.

Location: South Beach Fremantle

I was doing an early morning shoot for Streetwise Magazine, published in Fremantle by Carmelo Amalfi. I knew local trainers used South Beach to exercise their horses, so I arrived very early and waited. I captured these two riders from the back so I wouldn't have to worry about getting model releases signed. My plan was to compress the foreground and blur the background, so I shot this with a Nikkor 70-200mm f4 wide open at 200mm. I bumped up the ISO to 1600 to get a fast shutter speed of 1640th of a second, so I had to remove some noise in post production, using Topaz DeNoise.
