After the Gold Coast it was off to Bundaberg…getting up was hard as most nights we’d stay up late drinking and talking and getting anywhere a good photo can be taken means riding or walking down the road.
Our last morning at the Gold Coast…had a fair bit of rain while we were there so I didn’t get out as often as I would have liked
Just across from our hotel on the Gold Coast.
I’ve long been a fan of the Lonely Spec (ok, I’ve been a fan since like December, that’s long enough in internet time) and have had a great deal of fun reading through their awesome and inspiring posts on astro photography. I was even inspired so far as to buy a fisheye lens and have a go myself…With limited success as I can’t really find any dark skies in Sydney but should I ever find myself in the Aussie outback I’m now prepared! It also has some fantastic info on how to de-fish a fisheye photo which is brilliant for when you want a nice wide photo with little distortion.
More recently I’ve been looking at a new website the crew at Lonely Spec have been working on, The Photon Collective which is still growing but already has some awesome stuff including this little tutorial on Levitation Photography.
Before I humiliate myself in public I decided to have a go in the privacy on my own home. I’m pretty happy with the results so far and can’t wait to try some more stuff and maybe offer more tips that weren’t covered in The Photon Collective’s tutorial.
Taken at the Gold Coast when on holiday with my family 🙂
Once again, no sun
Kyeemagh again…days where the clouds block the horizon suck!
