Como Jetty

22 04 2008


 Decided to take some more photos at sunset after the gym today , didnt have enough time to scope out any place far but decided to check out Como and the jetty . Was a popluar place today there were 3 other photographers out there shoting the jetty as well as a bunch of walkers and people fishing .
Really like this location as it was close to where we used to stay when we came down to Perth from the farm and me and my brother used to play down near the jetty . Got a bit of Paralex distortion as I dont have a Panorama head yet (until my Nodal Ninja is ordered , waiting for the US site to credit my credit card the money back so I can order it from the Australia site ) and couldnt decied to crop it out or not . In the end I decided to leave the bottom half there as I liked the compostion . Was a 7 Stitch Panorama with 3 layers ,

Loving my Canon F/1.4 50mm lens , the sharpness of its amazing compared to the standard kit lens , the only thing is have to be a bit more distant back 🙂

I also bought a Arctic Butterfly today to give my senor a clean as it has built up a fair bit of dust over the last year . So going to cleaning it later on tonight , hopefully its not that complicated .


South Perth

Havent Been out photographing much for the last few days as been busy at work and missed some really great weather and lighting .
Was just going throught some old shots tonight and found this one I never got a round to stitching up . It is a 4 stitch panorama of the South Perth Fore Shore at Sunset , took this one last year in June . Well have 3 days off work now so hopefully will get out some more to shoot . Have to take a drive about to find some good locations might try and find some paddocks and fields just out of Perth .

In other news will finally be able to make it to one of Christians Courses , Have rostered my self off work for the 9th , 10th and 11th of May and booked accommodation . Planning to head down there either thursday afternoon or Friday morning . Planning to take some photos as well while im down there . Just have to scout out the location of the place I want to shoot and put them in my GPS so I dont get lost 🙂

I have also sold some of my work 🙂 I was showing one of my fellow co workers some of my photography the other day as he was purchasing his first DSLR and I was advising him of the type of camera I had and others on the market . The next day I came in to work and he had showen my photos to just about every on in the office and they where really impressed . Had a couple coworkers wanting to buy my and Matilda Bay Boat House and My Stormy Perth shot as prints . So going to head down to the printer tomorrow and get them printed up . To my suprise that afternoon I was called into the marketing managers office and they had just seen my photos as well and where intrested in purchasing some or hiring me to take photos of locations to use with advertising 🙂 They even mentioned I might be able to travel about on our net work to take shots of various locations we fly too . Just curious as this is my first real sales , how much to people out there normally markup there prints ? And what price to people put on the shots for use as stock images for advertising ?
