Shot of the Day #66

In March I was photographing down at South Bank Promenade, Melbourne on a Saturday night, when the weather was still pleasant enough to have dinner by the Yarra River. As always there were the street performers – Fire Twirlers, and as I found out, also a perfect photo opportunity to experiment with slow shutter speeds! Later in Photoshop I grayscaled the crowd and masked the performer into the spotlight.

Shot of the Day #65

Sorting through the remains of the photographs I took on my Red Centre Trip – I found three photographs unstitched. This photo stitch is of the remarkable Kata Tjuta/Olgas sandstone formations, located not far from the younger rock Uluru/Ayers Rock. Using my polariser I partially picked up some of the detail in the reflections, and then later in Photoshop uncovered the shadows with adjustment layers and layer masking (screenshot below).

Shot of the Day #64

This spider was very patient with me while I tried to focus on his thin web. I was using a Canon 30D with a Macro 1:2.8 Lens, so you can get an idea of the size of the spider (very small). You may also be interested in my photograph of a BEE here!
