:Flash as fill, 6 images that tell a story. Establishing, close, and medium shots. The trip was to Towra, with my family…here are some more pics, equally as important, but didn’t make the final cut. We had no good bites in the shallows of Towra, whilst sheltering from the winds. Actually we didnt have much fishing luck all day, but great to get out, all the same.
Such a shame to see so much rubbish on the shore of Towra, but as this part of the beach can only really be entered by boat, it doesnt seem to really get looked after. I suppose most of the rubbish comes from careless boat people and littering from people on the other side of the bay.
Shooting Micah on Botany Bay, a little bit of location portraiture for those people looking at my blog. I do take your standard images too. For this shoot I bought 25m of rope to hang from the beautiful trees at Ramsgate. I must of looked strange carrying a ladder, and climbing it, to throw the rope over it, with my shoe attached. Thank-you to the man who stopped to help. I was trying to explain to him, that I wasn’t planning on doing something stupid, but he couldn’t speak English. He worked it out and was a great help.

Being out when the sun sets like this is always stunning, Botany Bay (even), is no exception.
On Thursday (at tech) we looked into photo merge. Between LR and photoshop you have some pretty smart programming. This is my first attempt, so there are areas to work on. I have about 50 images (joined) here, maybe I could of used less,maybe more in the outer corners, next time. Jim, (my teacher) recommended these tips:
1)Focus on your subject that you want focused, then turn to manual focus. 2) Take your image 3) move up and down your subject, either side to side , or up and down, taking images,MAKING SURE you overlap by 30%. 3) Import to LR, apply lens correction, white balance if needed 4) Resize your images ( or else it will take for ever in the alignment ) and open up in photoshop either through LR:photo, edit in, merge in LR as panorama, or import under Merge to Panorama which is somewhere in Photo shop, file,merge as panorama. 4) follow the pop upsThe program does the rest. Have fun.
