Busselton Jetty

27 06 2008

Just board at home so went through some old shots of mine . Been trying to find some I took of a sunset about a year ago but havent had any luck as of yet 😦 . Found this shot I took of the Jetty at Busselton . Was from when I went down to Dunsbrough for Christian Fletchers course about 2 months ago . Bit of a different angle from the others . Tried a few things out from Scott Kelbys photoshop book , liked the effect on the shot , and think it would look pretty good on Metallic print .

Might try and head out to for a shot tommorrow morning and mabye on Sunday as well . Been wanting to get some shots of the Martime Museam plus been wanting to head to some farming paddocks to get some shots with this great cloud cover about . If any one else is intreset let me know 🙂

In other news I ordered a Wacom tablet from the otherday just have to wait for it to arrive .

I like this photo, but I feel it might be a little over done… but I also like to get carried away in PS every now and then.
I still don’t know how to get the blues like that though. Christian seems to do it for some of the waves in his photos.

Very moody shot Kirk, Not being a long exposure I really like the section where the suns rays are shinning off the surf.

Yeah nice shot Kirk, I like the moody sky and how it almost lacks colour. I’m confused as to how I feel about what you’ve done to the water. Although its “unnatural”, I really like the look of it. Maybe its because I don’t know how to do it and I’m simply jealous.

Thanks Dylan ,
Yeah I some times go a bit overboard with processing as well lol .
Helps with the practice of new methods in photoshop but , This was a pretty dull photo to begin with and just seeing what i could get out of it . Will bring the water edit down a bit but thanks 🙂

28 06 2008

Thanks Neal , there was actually no light there was all photoshoped in . Worked okay but might and try to bring the processing of the water down a bit to make it look a bit more natural

28 06 2008
kirkhille

Thanks Luke ,
Yeah Im still unsure about the water as well , i was going for a high contrast image with dull grey skys and brigh foreground might have over done it a bit but still liked the feel to the image

28 06 2008

Thanks mel ,
Not mush to it made a layer of the water and increase the levels saturation of the blues and cyan and put a glasian blur over it . Then put a another layer of the water unedited over it and reduced the opactancy down

28 06 2008
dylanfox

Are you making a selection of the water? I prefer to just use a layer mask and If I want to do something to that same area you can drag that same mask on to the new layer. (if that makes sense)

I really like the look of this image but maybe if the blues were down just a touch….

Keep them coming mate.

28 06 2008
kirkhille

yeah some times do a layer mask but I chop and change my prossecing all the time lol . Was just a quickish edit with this one to try some new techs from scott kelbys book

Hi Kirk,

I remember when I did the course with Christian that he said he regretted getting a small tablet, so yeah I saved up for the larger one.

Hi James,

I would like to head down Saturday evening as that will give us plenty of time to check the place out before setting up for a shot. No point in turning up Saturday morning when its pitch black and we haven’t scoped the place out. 🙂

Jamie Paterson

jamiepatersonphotography

I would be cool with a shot at the falls. I can get a shot at the beach anytime and let’s face it the sunsets are that strong at the moment.

I have the out laws staying with me for the weekend so I’d be very appreciative if we could set a day and time early. 🙂

Luke Austin

Ahh shit! Did you guys end up at mettams? That is literally about 65 metres from me. I could have put a few faces to the names.
How did the shoot go? I woke up at 6 am walked out front, checked it out and ended up going back to sleep.

5 07 2008
kirkhille

Yeah went down to mettams this morning but it was just me and Jamie , Neal decided to sleep in lol 🙂

kirkhille

Hey Neal ,

Might take a drive out today to try and sus out some new locations

5 07 2008
Luke Austin

Yeh I should have. Didn’t realise you were though. I might be keen on Kalamunda tomorrow, not sure if I have to work tomorrow yet though. I will know by this afternoon and let you know.

5 07 2008
spoolphotography

Yeah had one of those nights when I could not sleep and spent most of it watching the hrs tick by on the bedside clock till next thing I know I am waking up and its freakin 6.45am. Last check of the clock was something like 2.30am. I am goof for the falls, but as Jamie has said he wants to scout before tuning up, maybe we can check out somewhere on the River for the morning shoot ?

Some suggestions

Pelican Point – well east of it.
Rossmoyne waters.
Fremantle fishing boat harbor – where the commercial boats pen.
Mosman Bay – around the jetty
Burswood – near the old boat house that is a wreck right now

just suggestions.

5 07 2008
kirkhille

5 07 2008
