My Editing Work Flow


 

I thought i would share with you my work flow, or my selection process, these images were taken late 2015 and I have only ever shared one, Like most photographers i am emotionally attached to my images, the sites, the sounds, the feelings of the day so sometimes it makes it really hard to choose my best, I usually do a quick view, quite often stopping at the one that jumps out without looking at the rest, excited much?! I always upload as soon as i get in, the few times I haven’t somehow they have been lost, Mystery! Although not happened lately, but that’s another story. Time frame here about two hours, walking, looking, smiling, shooting, sitting and watching and of course playing around with the water. Having a right ol giggle with the beach to myself, who knows i may be posted as someone else’s random, looking like a nutter, waves crashing in and lifting up the tripod. I remember when i first started I just about shared everything, a little tougher on myself these days and need to get harsher and if i only get one image on the day, that is satisfying enough, it’s more than a shoot, its my way of life, what brings me peace and joy. Photography makes me travel, travel makes me photograph, I love the randoms I meet , my 10 minute friendships, funny how strangers can share so much, Or the really quiet days just focusing on what i see while everything else just melts away, heaven.

All images from shoot, minus a few, Most of the time i will try a pano shoot for each location. I import into Lightroom and copy as dng on an external drive under year, category, location, star rate, add keywords, create a collection under year and category, then colour the ones I want to edit.

And of course colour, sometimes even imaging things i would like to encounter on the beach. A little photoshop fun.


Sealink, Cape Jervis to Kangaroo Island


Sealink Ferry, Cape Jervis to Kangaroo Island,

What a smooth and easy journey from Cape Jervis to Penneshaw.

Greeted by really friendly people, happy to hear about my travel plans even offering suggestions.

A wonderful experience, can’t wait to do it all again.

Took this with a couple of hours to spare before heading back to Adelaide, my feet too sore from going further.

Take 2

Looks like I need to wait for a king tide to get the image I want.

It was hypnotic watching and waiting for the tide that really never came in.

Such is life.

Lake Daylesford, Victoria


Solo adventure this morning..I woke up at 4am, a couple of snuggles with my blanket before I decided to get up, packed my gear and off I went to Lake Daylesford.

New iPhone meant i had to listen to the same song over and over so my gps would work, U2 “You can’t leave where you are if you haven’t left” mmmm.

I have to say it was really creepy, my gps decided to take me through Rockbank, a quick stop for my egg and bacon Mcmuffin, can’t remember the last time I had one.

About 10 minutes before i arrived to Daylesford a Kangaroo decided to jump out in front of the car, sticking to 80km I slammed on the brakes, waited for the bang! He was to the left of me by then and he just kept hopping away into the darkness, I mean really we live in a massive country!!!

So when you see those signs about roos take them seriously, no mucking around in Australia!

It was still dark when I arrived, I couldn’t see the path and quite frankly a little scarred of the boogy  man, it didn’t take long for first light, wondered down and around for about 500 meters and there was the jetty, annoyed they have that horrible fencing, do they not consider photographers come out to play and not  don’t feel like cloning it out.

Met a few people today, mostly holiday makers, a little chat, I really love how people always share other locations close by.

Definitely will be back at some stage, a different season perhaps.

Another off my list, until second round 😉

Some Geese on the side of the road was the icing, they were waiting and when they realised I was stopping for them over the road they went, very sweet.

On the way home I noticed my petrol was real low, meh, I just made it. Spur of the moment trips, i never check!

I could do with a few hours sleep right about now, signing off, have a great weekend.

The Boathouse


Did I mention I have absolutely no balance?

A little fun with this pano, funny enough it’s how i feel when water is moving around me.

Lenny at Cambells Cove


Meet Lenny,
what a lovely bloke, stopped of to have a chat while he was painting and invited me in to see what he has done with the place, “I have a girlfriend, she tries to pretty it up for me but I won’t let her” Very nice of him to invite me in allow me to photograph his second home.

A lovely morning out with my girls.
