In the From the Vault series, I feature an older image which hasn’t been seen here before and I talk about the capture and processing and hopefully highlight why this image is special to me.
The feature image in From the Vault this week is from a Coffs Harbour Sunrise series. These images were taken on a family holiday up at Coffs Harbour in October 2006. I woke early and headed out to the jetty at Coffs Harbour before dawn and what started as a fairly drab and grey early morning, turned into something special as the clouds started to part and allow the sun to reveal some brilliant colours.
Continue reading to see a few other shots from the set and read more about the photos.
The feature image above was taken with my Canon 350D and stock 18-55mm lens (I didn’t have my Sigma at this stage). The lens was set at 22mm, f/22, and the shot was 1/3s exposure @ ISO100. Processing included contrast and saturation adjustments only.
The next image in the set is from on the wharf itself. It’s such a beautiful location for photography.
This image was taken at 35mm focal length, f/29 and was a 1.6s exposure @ ISO100. The RAW was processed in Raw Shooter Premium to give a boost to the saturation, add shadow contrast, reduce highlight contrast, adjust white balance (to give the blue hues) and cropped slightly top and bottom for a more panoramic view.
The last in the set is of the wharf/jetty itself and was processed to give a misty/foggy feel.
This image was at 22mm focal length, f/22, 1/2s exposure @ ISO100. Processing included crop top and bottom (mostly bottom) for a panoramic effect, and mainly contrast adjustments to give the old style foggy feel. A film grain style filter was applied in photoshop as well to add some noise.
Thanks for looking and allowing me to share with you.
