I took these images at the beach on Thursday. Some of it is really ugly. The chair has become a bit of a photographic study, but I’m a biggy for beach textures. I shot the night before and didn’t check the ISO which was set too 1000, and thought it strange the camera was metering at a fairly fast shutter speed in the gloom and rain.: I was really time pressed, but still the study turned out interesting for me. I always try and stick to the native ISO, but Ive got to say, I dont mind a bit of grain and I used to push process in film to create more grain. In some circumstances its nice. I was really surprised that before editing, the images picked up in strong sepia tones, but still, I opted mainly for the B&W. I suppose the different  colour rendition is partly from the jacked up ISO as well as  lighting conditions, it just renders differently.The 70-200 lens did a nicer job than my wide angle, and the chair has stayed in the same place despite the tides.

Screen Shot 2013-05-22 at 5.18.12 PMIts great to blog for archival, and its pretty groovy to get your work published….pretty much what Im aiming for, after I finish my studies, so prior too completion is great. This is a screen capture of the ABC web. I took the image of Darren Jew at his exhibition. He creates absolutely majestic under water images, google him, well worth the look. A really lovely man and I believe he takes groups out on these underwater adventures in Tonga. Imagine that hey, that’s another dream this year, to get the housing on the camera. I would really love to get into an underwater documentary. Saving those pennies for the housing. Thanks for the link Darren.
