Notice: Undefined variable: read_more in /home/scottp12/public_html/wp-content/themes/traction/archive.php on line 34

This photo manipulation is called a stereographic projection, which takes a standard photograph and stretches it around in a circle creating a Globe or Planet like image!

Marysville was buzzing yesterday lunchtime with all the day-trippers buying lunch at the famous Marysville Bakery! This photograph was taken lying down looking up, in between the tall two Gum Trees. Using Camera Raw in Photoshop I was able to uncover some of the detail in the shadows, especially right in the foreground.

Uluru is the largest rock in the world and it is always interesting to compare the size – I don’t think I gave a fair representation of the size in this photograph, however the 2-3cm rock in the foreground is 2.1km from Uluru!

The Red Centre – Outback, Northern Territory, Australia


Notice: Undefined variable: read_more in /home/scottp12/public_html/wp-content/themes/traction/archive.php on line 34

At the end of last month I flew to Alice Springs and explored the surroundings of Central Australia over an extended weekend. It was an unbelievable trip and the experience of almost pure Outback was so unfamiliar/unique to me that I found it was amazing how Australia offers such a dynamic range of landscapes and culture from cities to the vast outback. I documented my trip visually as you’ll see as you scroll down – although some of these images are very revealing of Central Australia it is still nothing compared to being there, however with the use of panoramic photographs I hope it offers a better representation of the broad spacious lands that I experienced.

Early mornings in the Outback are cold, so cold that there is frost on the desert bushes (due to openness of the desert the heat from day escapes freely as the sun sets). Using a higher ISO I made the sunlight blow out the background and highlight this photograph creating whiter whites and drawing more attention to the foreground focal point – Grass shoot with frosty dew!
