Full of Pastels

NIKON Z 7 + NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR @ 200 mm, 1/25 sec at f/9, ISO 450

Taken whilst visiting relatives in South Australia back in March. All of the native Nikkor Z lenses have been fantastic. Game changers even. I now have six (6) of them with another on order

This was shot with the “lowly” Nikon Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR all in one ultrazoom lens. Handheld at 1/25 sec at 200mm with the full moon just rising quickly above the horizon just on sunset

Shooting in twilight just after sunset you can get some beautiful pastels in the sky

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

Beam Me Up – Vivid Sydney 2022

Beam Me Up

NIKON Z 7 + NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S @ 55 mm, 15 sec at f/9, ISO 64

I wanted to redo the “beam shots” version of the Opera House I’d taken before Vivid opened. So I returned to the scene and this time I adjusted my position like I wished I had after shooting last time

Here I’m situated again in the middle of the four projection booths. But instead of shooting at the same height as the projector front elements I’ve dropped to floor level. So the camera is position just above the floor and about 1m below the level of the projectors. Thus instead of the beams coming in from the side and over the projection itself I’ve got the beams coming down from above

To me this results in a much better composition and it doesn’t introduce as much haze over the projections on the sails

Corpo Celesti

NIKON Z 7 + NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S @ 42 mm, 1/13 sec at f/8, ISO 64

Along the Wulugul Walk at Barangaroo you will find Corpo Celesti

Here you can walk amongst these large bright inflatable planets of our solar system

“As one of the most important events in our history, the lunar landing showed that if you can look at your planet from afar, perhaps you will find more similarities than differences? Are we able to see the big picture and sense our collective responsibility to save our Earth, and our kind?” – light artists Daniele Davino, Daniele Spanò and Luca Brinchi
