Anytime Fitness Model Shoot

I’m a member of a Facebook group called Snap Happy South West which organise a variety of shoots for it’s members.  This one in particular captured my attention.  2 well chiseled models, a gym (Anytime Fitness Treendale) and a huge learning curve for me.  With all of the mirrors around the walls and all of the photographers you needed to be creative to come up with poses and shooting angles where you or other photographers didn’t appear in the reflections.  Many thanks to our models Nathan Whitton and Danae Cornford.

The first 4 B&W pics were taken with 2 speed lights on stands, 1 with a soft box and 1 with an umbrella (can see these in the reflection in one of the images)

Footy Photography SWFL

I was invited along to the Brunswick oval last weekend for some “footy photography”, thanks Ash!  I took along my birding lens, a Canon 300mm prime lens and using my Canon 5D Mkiii had a great time in the very muddy boundary area.  I was very happy with the action that I captured, although most of the game took place on the far side of the oval I was able to crop in on my images without loosing quality. Light was falling fast as the game didn’t start until 5pm, my last shots, taken early in the 2nd quarter were taken at 3200 ISO.  I kept my aperture on f4, my ISO and shutter speed fluctuated a lot according to where the play was i.e. in the shadows or in the light.
