More from the rocks at Lorne today. I didn’t get up early again, but have some of the images from yesterday mornings session. I thought I would show some images that aren’t HDR images. They are single images that have been processed in Photoshop. I also got quite a few requests to share how I did the images.
You should recognise this from yesterday, though this is just one image, the second image in the bracketed shots.
I have put the exif information under the image, so you can see what it was shot at. I use aperture priority when I shoot most of the time. I also had the camera on a tripod and I was using a Neutral Density Filter. I knew I would have to use whatever I could to slow down the shutter speed.
I mentioned yesterday that I did some with waves, you can’t see them that well, but they are there in the distance. The processing with HDR lost the waves, so it made sense to do it as a single image.
As the sun came up, it was getting harder to get that soft water blur, so I upped the aperture, or rather closed it down to f25, and I added my polariser on the lens as well.
This image was taken in practically the same place as the previous one. I do love the way the light hits the rocks and the wet rock look. The textures in the rocks are so amazing as well.
I hope this has answered the questions that people wanted to know about how I photographed these images. I hope you will all go out and try it yourself, if you can, if you are inclined to and if you love water images. Good Luck.
