Maroubra Rock Pool Sunrise

This morning i went out to the Maroubra Rock Pool and Shelf. I absouletly love this place. This morning we were treated with a beautiful sunrise just before it hit the cloud cover. On a perfect morning the natural saturation of colours is amazing. I turned up about 5:30 and there were about 7 people already doing laps..... pretty keen! The thing with a lot of these rock pools is that there is usually a very intense orange light that can sometimes drown out your photos. There are a couple of things you can do........ Leave it (which sometimes is not a bad idea), in your photo editor, you can drop the temperature which can give a really nice finish to your photo, but this will sometimes lead to over saturated skys (blues), and then your going to have drop the blues out, or just drop out some of the oranges. Generally i just leave it or tweak out some of the oranges just a little.

I have known about the Maroubra rock pool for a while but havent shot their, im going to go back in the future and give it another crack.

Long Reef Sunrise this morning

I was up before dawn heading to Long Reef again to try and catch a different perspective. The forecast was for a cloudy morning and for once the forecast was right. I took a few shots but wasnt really feeling "it" for some reason. I think the overcast weather may have got to me too. There was a glimmer of hope with it turning out to be a nice day at first light, but as the sun rose, the clouds rolled in to a glum Sydney morning.

The second two shots were takwn with a Neutral Density Filter. A 9 stop ND Filter (NDX400) which you can check out HERE.

Neutral Density filters are a great way to limit light to achieve longer shutter speeds to blur water movement (or any other forms of movement). They are a great tool capturing images and setting a mood. ND filters can be used in a lot of different lighting conditions to create the desired effect. The Most common types of ND filters are ND2(1 stop) , ND4(2 stops) and ND8 (3 stops). I enjoy using my NDx400 which limits light by 9 stops and can create some great images that you could not otherwise produce with out. Click HERE for out full range of ND filters, or shoot me an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for any questions.

http://landscapephotographymagazine.com/

"Landscape Photography is a new online magazine for landscape photographers. The founders of the magazine say they would like to “always keep an open mind” and include “anything that has to do with landscape photography”, but stress that they “will never include images or articles about portrait, sports and such genre photography as then we will become just one more photo mag and this will never happen”. Interested readers are encouraged to visit the website and give feedback to the magazine editors on how the new online magazine could be improved."

"Landscape Photography Magazine is a means for photographers around the world to communicate, exchange ideas, images, views and learn from each other. Our aim is to spread the love of landscape photography and inspire all ages on every corner of this planet. We would love to hear your views, what you think so far and what you would like to see in the future.
