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.

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!

The sky in the Outback is always a rich deep blue and the sunsets are just as stunning – The black silhouettes of the harsh outback lands and a painterly mirage of clouds backlit by the falling Sun. There was a slight breeze while I was photographing the sunset and I had in mind that I would want to later lift the vibrant colours of the clouds in Camera Raw with an HDR effect, so instead of the three+ exposures I opted for raw. The screenshot below shows my adjustments in Camera Raw!

I attempted a ‘HDR’ like image in Photoshop’s Camera Raw and it turned out to be very handy in manipulating my photograph into a better quality image than I would have produced if I used Photomatix (in my opinion)! If you look closely at the screenshots of my before and after the level of noise is very minimal in the shadows in particular and I would have a massive amount of noise after processing a raw in Photomatix!

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!
