Harbour Bridge from Neutral Bay

Here is my favourite shot from the quick shoot at Kurraba Point Reserve Neutral Bay. It was taken at 10:30pm. I will have to make another trip to this location just after sunset to get the glow in the sky.

Hand held with slow shutter speed. Makes for an interesting mood.

Light painting

During the period between Christmas and new years, the local reject shop was selling some cool LED lights and glow sticks. I purchased a few different types with the intention of getting into light painting with long exposures over the next couple of weeks. Many months ago we did some light painting with steel wool and the results were interesting (still need to get a bit more experience with the best angles etc).

Last night while at Yellow Rock Lookout taking some after sunset shots I decided to give one of the led lights a try. Here are the results of the experiments:

Here are the images of the steel wool shots taken in August 2010:

Photo a Day

2011 is now here and it is time for me to start with a photographic project that many have tried, but few have completed. It is Photo a Day, take at least one photo a day for one (month to start with) and upload to your favorite photo sharing site.
