A macro shot of a flower that Em received for her birthday. Because I only get a chance to shoot at night, this shot was lit by flashing a 430EX against a foam core board at close range. I used a Canon 100mm macro and some Kenko extension tubes.
This is the front wheel from my road bike.
I am participating in the MS Sydney to Gong ride in November this year and I need a profile shot for my page so I began playing around with various shots of the bike.
I finally got a lighting kit this week and this was my first real chance to play around with it.
Standard one strobe setup here with my 430EX shot at 1/4 power into a white umbrella at about 1.5m from AJ, 45 degrees left.
As you can see, still toying with the high key image look...

Happy Mothers Day to all those Mum's out there!
The whole family headed to the banks of the Nepean river for a picnic today to celebrate Mothers day. This shot is of Sienna enjoying and ice cream; technically not the best shot ever taken but it makes me smile every time I look at this shot. Notice the bites taken out of the middle of the cone before she has finished eating the top... so cute :) She certainly loves her food.
The kids were well behaved all day (even Chelsea after a sleepless night) but made up for it in the car on the way home... hmmmm.

Rouse Hill Park stables taken at sunrise.
Got up early again this morning to get this shot (and many others that will never see the light of day...)
I arrived at the park well before sunrise and surprisingly the gates were wide open. Since i had some time to spare I thought I would kill time by attempting some light painting on the 4x4. The shots didn't work very well as I only brought an LED headlamp and the beam was too concentrated to cover a wide area.
The above shot was taken about 10 mins after sunrise. There was enough sunlight to light the stable and leave the foreground a little darker.
Got up EARLY this morning to get to Circular Quay before work.
I set my alarm for 4:30am as I had to leave the house by 5am; however after my alarm went off, I decided to lay in bed for another 2 mins. Bad idea. Opened my eyes and the clock said 4:53am.
I still managed to shower, shave, brush teeth and get dressed in 7 mins. Record.
The clouds were quite low this morning, which meant that there would only be a short amount of time for the sun to be shining. This was one of the last shots that I took before it started to rain...
