A Bali wedding

I’ve been so busy that I don’t get many chances to just play around on the net anymore. I’ve got 4 weddings to edit before my December, month long trip to Vietnam.

Below are a few images from a Bali wedding I photographed last month.

RB Photowalk organised by Adrian

After missing a few RB meets, either being too busy or too sleepy to get out of bed, I managed to go along to today’s one. Albeit an hour late, I managed to get there before we all moved along from the meet point.

I didn’t take many [different] pics but these are mine for the day. I don’t shoot macro, so I sorta stuck with portraits.

Erin & Mick

I photographed this wedding last Saturday of Erin & Mick. Caroline Gorka followed me around for the day, but unfortunately I haven’t had the time to look at her photos yet. I don’t usually edit photos this quickly for a wedding, but I’ve got to clear my backlog as I’m leaving for a wedding in Bali next week.. YAY!

Anyway…Erin and Mick were a great couple, easy to get along with and very fun loving. I tried my best to bring these qualities in them out in the photos. The location of the wedding was the zoo, so we got to wander around the zoo all by ourselves for about 35min (yep, another rushed location shoot) before ending up at a really really lovely Japanese themed cherry blossom garden. We timed it right so that the lighting from the setting sun was int…

Perth - 3 E-Shoots in 3 Days...

Whilst in Perth to shoot Jess & Luke’s wedding (I’ll put it up sometime soon), I managed to fit three e-shoots while I was there – yes, it was a very busy week! The three couples; Kat & Marcus, Michelle & Bern and Jasmina & Darren were wonderful and we managed to get some great shots from a variety of locations around Perth.

For the techies out there, the South Perth foreshore and Hyde Park shoot were with natural/ambient light, and the beach shoot was a mix of ambient and flash light.

Mel & Geoff - A wedding at Point Cook

This turned out to be a wonderful wedding with a very unique backdrop and perfect lighting conditions that greatly favoured photography. We not only had a Tiger Moth plane as a backdrop, but also a warm sunset and rainbow as well – how lucky was that!?

My second photographer for the day was Daniel, and he did a wonderful job in capturing the candid moments with a longer lens. As such, a number of these following images are his and I’d like to thank him for helping out during the day.

These are my favourites:

Circus Shoot...

This is a short gig I did today for a local circus act of acrobatics/jugglers. They needed some images for advertising materials.

First set of pics were shot using a SB800 to the right. Only have one flash available as I left my other PW at the last wedding I shot.

Then turned the flash off, jacked up the ISO, and did some jumping photos. This is the first time I’ve found a legitimate use for 9FPS in RAW.

Fun shoot!!

An engagement shoot from this afternoon.

An engagement shoot I did with Fiona and Steve today at the RBG in Melbourne.

Autumn colours combined with soft sunset light.. made for really lovely saturated colours and great lighting conditions.

Tried shooting into the sun in a few of these to get some cool light glare effects. All edited in Lightroom for colour, contrast and vignetting.
