Tasmania Revisit

17 Oct 2011 at 8:17pm

Going back over previous trips is like being there all over again. I have been accused of having a camera up to my eye in every waking moment and I guess that is true. Am I missing out on the experience of being there or am I experiencing more than those who are kicking back and watching it all pass by. As a photographer a moment lost is a missed opportunity. If I leave my camera home and the light is out of this world, I might as well been out of this world as well. I have missed it. My purpose for being on this earth seems to be to record my experiences, it must be because every other pursuit or hobby just can’t match it. I remember the feeling I got surfing, the thrill of speeding along a crystal clear wall of water. That was pretty special. How could taking photos be better than that? For me it is and when I look back to places I have been, everything comes back and I relieve the moment again. I am the luckiest guy on the planet!

Bay of Fires, Tasmania

I had two beers tonight, quickly, on an empty stomach. Now I’m not a big drinker and it sort of gave me a bit of arrogance and ego not normally associated with someone so humble!! I told my wife I was going to create something pretty damned amazing, the like of which the world had never seen before. I failed!! She told me in no uncertain terms “Nice Stocker”

Bugger, it just goes to show alcohol and editing should not be mixed. I think listening to System of a Down didn’t help either.

One theory I put to the test though is that heavy metal music makes you think about the devil, death and dying. Well have a look at this photo. Bright, light and out of sight! Busted!!! Heavy metal music turns you into a soft marshmallow capable of nothing more hard than a cup of tea and sponge cake! So all you metal mothers out there listen to some Rick Astley if you want to produce images the devil would be proud of!

Shot on the most fantastical Phase One P65+ and 45mm Phase lens. Focus stacked for mintness!

Black and White Cradle Mountain

Just messing around with some black and white. Silver Efex to the rescue. Hard to tell on my laptop if it has the right contrast in the right place. Will know when I get home to my beautiful Eizo monitor. There is a reason we buy these monitors. They show you things a little apple screen can’t. Well worth the investment. Speak to Ben and Trevo at Team digital about the latest models.

Lake Pedder

We have hired a massive motorhome to do the trip around Tassie. This was the view from our campsite on the first night. Hows that for a free stop over. You would pay a fortune for a view like that anywhere else in the world. I have to finish this image when I get home on the big computer. My laptop just doesn’t cut it. In fact most of my best stuff I won’t be able to do till I get home. It just takes too long to work on the lappie!
