Digital Photography School Assignment: New Beginnings

Here is this weeks DPS assignment picture for the “Machinery” assignment. It is, of course, the chain (and back end of the chainstay) on a BMX bike.

2009 UCI BMX World Championships – Elite Group Champions

I hung around the double step down at the end of the first straight taking pictures on the elite race day at the BMX World Championships. It was kind of fortunate that I chose to snap the leader on the way through each of which went on to be the 2009 World Champion in their group. Check out what I caught of the new junior and senior elite world BMX champions for 2009. Continue reading →

DPS Assignment – A Mistake

OK, plenty of mistakes in my catalogue, but not really anything good. I like this one though that came about when messing around with exposure levels and auto bracketing. I was shooting the sunset over Melbourne from my balcony.

It is a mistake because it is too dark, grainy and perhaps too silhouetted, plus there is lens flare. But I like it for the color, the definition of the clouds, the details such as the cranes and the landmarks I can identify by their silhouettes!

DPS Assignment – B&W Portrait (resubmission)

OK, I decided to do a bit more post processing for the DPS Assignment. I wanted to up the contrast with the black and white and lighten the image. This also took the cloud texture out and made the background almost entirely white. I also added a vignette which I have never done before and am not too sure about, but it is what it is.
