Photoshoot from King’s Park

I was excited when a friend at work organised a sunrise photoshoot this week.    We all met in King’s Park on a chilly morning by the war memorial.

This image is from a 4 image stitch at 2 second exposure, and then tone mapped using HDR techniques.

It was funny because we spent most of early part of the shoot with our back to the war memorial.  But once the early morning twilight light was gone and the sun was nearly risen, the city didn’t have the same atmosphere anymore, so we turned around and shot other things instead.   Here is the war memorial (before the flags went up and it was opened).

I finally found some time to play around with the shots I took at sunrise a few weeks ago.  These are my first attempts at shooting the Matilda Bay Boat House, and the first time playing around with HDR too!

Unfortunately, even though I had a tripod and used it for shooting the Old Swan Brewery, by the time I got to the Boat House, I couldn’t be bothered taking it out of the car, and so had this HDR image is a bit blurry from hand holding.    I played around with various tone mappings, but haven’t found one that I’m comfortable with.  Also, I’m not quite happy with the composition on this one either.   I do have some panorama shots that I’ll stitch together soon.

So, in the end, nowhere as good as Kirk Hille’s amazing images, but I do hope to get close one day!!
