I thought I would share some photos that I took a month or so back when I went down to check out the foreshore along the Mornington Peninsula for this weekends workshop. It was good to go down before to check out the lighting, but more importantly I realised that going there in the afternoon at twilight would be pointless because there are far too many people around. It is also hard to work out places to go because there is so much traffic on the roads.
I took this shot down near where the two heads of the bay meet, there is a narrow gap for ships to enter or leave. It is near Point Nepean. Just looked on Google maps to help me remember the name and because Point Nepean is a Armed Forces base, think Navy, it doesn’t say what it is called. So funny, there are photographs of it, but they can’t name it.
I don’t know that I think this shot is that interesting, it may have been better if we were looking at the morning sun as opposed to the late afternoon sun.
Again the sun was against me. Most of the place was in shadow because of the trees hanging around it. Would be nice to go back when the sun is somewhere else, possibly early morning.
This is part of the foreshore in Rye. You can see how many people are on the pier and it wasn’t even that warm. There is always something about the beach that draws people to it, not sure about it myself, but I do enjoy photographing it, without the people that is.
Nothing special about this image, it really was a point and click kind of image. Of course with a DSLR it is never really one of those. I would have had the camera on A, or aperture priority. I used a f stop of f22 and the shutter speed was 1/13 of a second with an ISO rating of 100. I would have used the tripod. I can take photos at the slow a shutter speed, but the conditions have to be right, with the environment and with me.
Tomorrow I will be packing up and heading down to Rosebud, where the house is that we are staying in. Looking forward to coming home with a stack of photos to edit and show you.
