      Thanks Chris. All the flower shots were in daylight but underexposed and light with a headlamp that you’d use for cycling or hiking. They have made a video not out yet that I’ve seen, they have a one minute wrap up one so far but should have a 6 …

      So walking throught the Botanic Gardens, I managed to find a whole series of flowers differnet colours to play with. In this case the lighting was natural with the sun hitting the leaf. So now I had two images I was happy with. Both colour and …

      So by now the pressure was building to have four shots and really needed to be heading back by ten in order to print and mount by mid day. So walking around the water front I found a palm and managed this one. Hmmm now we're getting something …

      Another attempt down by the water were some sculptures that I had a go at light painting, agian, nothing really excting, but now starting to get into an idea, times running out and still not really any images I was really happy with.

      Saturday night I got back to the room about ten and down loaded the imaged from the day to see if there was anything there that I could use as part of my four images and build on that. Unfortunately there was nothing there that grabed me as …

      I headed out to the coast to try adn find a location for sunset, looking for some options. As I got to the coast the clouds gathered, unfortuantely not the light and fluffy ones I prefered for sunset. As I was pushed for time rather than wast it I …

      Another spot I stopped off at was a series of cascades as the weather was somewhat warm 41 Deg C and 71% humidity, Not the most pleasant of temperatures to work in, the Cascades were full off people swimming, in this case I was looking for  grey …

      Trying to get four unique images each with a different colour, the idea was to have four images there were unique but would stand together as an overall theme which was the main brief while capturing the colours of Australia, So any colour that …

      From there I set off to try and capture a series of images with different colours in each with a dominate colour, to match the brief, With only 24 hours I was trying to work on the maps to see where a good sunset location would be as well as sun …

      Almost looks like a sci-fi image of a plant accreting or the distraction of one. Always fun playing with lighting and the effects you can get, even adding gels the white balancing to change the rest of the image can add great effects. Great work as …
