Singular Images

24mm, 1.3 secs, f25, ISO100

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.

24mm, 0.4secs, f14, ISO100

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.

24mm, 2.5 secs, f25, ISO100

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.

    • I do, but I would much rather it was in person, we must see if we can make that happen one day. :)

      March 11, 2013
      • Oh yes!! That would be amazing! I’ll let you know if I ever get to where you are and finally explore outside the US! HAHA

        March 11, 2013
      • And I will let you know if I am going to be coming to the US, we are hoping to visit end of next year.

        March 11, 2013
      • Oh how fun! Yes please do :D

        March 11, 2013
  28. Thank you for the information! I’m relatively new here, so I didn’t realize that I could participate in nominating for a variety awards. Had I know that earlier, I would have nominated you for all of them! :)

    P.S. Also, could I ask you where you focused in the first three photos?

    March 11, 2013
    • No idea, sorry, I tend to you use spot focusing, so I would have focus on the rocks about a third of the way in and on a dark one so it would give me more colour. Does that make sense?

      March 11, 2013
  29. Love these! I really like the way the light seems to make the rocks glow. Beautiful! ~ Sheila

    March 11, 2013
  30. Very informative and one can learn a lot from you. Thanks a lot.

    March 12, 2013
  31. That last shot is great. Lovely light and textures make for an interesting image.

    March 12, 2013
  32. Reblogged this on Nature Photography and commented:
    Some beautiful coastline photos from Leanne Cole. Love the shading and tone in the fourth one.

    March 12, 2013
  33. Don’t know if you know this, but a post you did in February I read and couldn’t comment on. That put me off, so I changed my mind about following. I hope that doesn’t automatically happen with posts, but mine have been commented on a couple months after, so I guess not.

    March 12, 2013
  34. gorgeous… some of the textures in the rocks along the great ocean road are fantastic!

    March 15, 2013
  35. Beautiful work, Leanne!

    March 15, 2013
  36. Leanne, you do an amazing job, not only of photography, but interacting with people. You deserve all of your awards, and then some, so it’s good to see you getting so many. I notice that you said you might come to the United States next year. I hope you get to California. You know you have a place to stay if you come!!! :)

    March 20, 2013
    • Thank you so much Marsha, lovely of you to say. We are going to California if we come, my husbands brother lives near San Francisco. Is that close. :)

      March 20, 2013
