Just a few shots taken late Monday along Nobbys Breakwall.
I was playing around with a Hoya NDX400 neutral density filter….it’s almost as dark as welding glass!
The Bogey Hole is a popular swimming spot in Newcastle, located beneath a headland and providing a spectacular vantage point to view the ocean. It was carved out in 1819 for the personal use of Major James Morisset who was the commandant of the penal colony.
It’s a steep path down from the top of the hill.
The existing steps and handrails are a bit dilapidated, and Newcastle Council has approved a restoration programme.
It’s a great place to catch the sun in the morning.
On 12th December 2011, a storm approaches Bar Beach, NSW from the south.
This video was a test of a technique and was composited from a series of still images. A neutral density filter and polarising filter were both used in order to allow 4 second exposures, hopefully capturing some lightning in the process.
This technique would work most effectively when it’s even darker, so the lens can be opened up a bit and longer exposures used.
Just a shot I took earlier this month at Newcastle Baths….
A first test of the video capabilities of the Canon 7D. The time lapse was created using the Twixtor plug-in for After Effects, and the video was composited in Sony Vegas
