A close up of a eucalypt at Bendeela Recreation Reserve. I was on a Len Metcalf photography workshop in Kangaroo. For me the grey shape running through centre of the image makes it. See more images here: Portfolio

On a Kangaroo Valley workshop with Len Metcalf we had a morning shoot at Beehive Point. The group was enjoying the location so much that we decided to stay till lunch time and continue shooting. This shot was taken late morning. I noticed these trees with straight trunks and small branches twisting in all directions. I spent some time just looking for a composition that worked with the light background and dark branches. I think this works well. I had to focus stack several images to get the right hand branch and upright branches in focus.

Blown Grass

Blown Grass

At Bendeela Recreation Reserve I found it a challenge to find a photograph, particularly as it was windy. I knelt down in a patch of tall grass-like plants and shot up to the sky with a shallow depth of field and utilising the wind to create additional blur. I think it’s important to also have part of the image, in this case, in focus. See more images here: Portfolio.
