Week 33 - HMQS Gayundah

    Newer Older

    Week 33 of the Landscape 52 Project

    This is my entry for the Strobist boot camp III, Assignment 3 competition. HMQS Gayundah was a flat-iron gunboat operated by the Queensland Maritime Defence Force and later the Royal Australian Navy (as HMAS Gayundah). She entered service in 1884 and was decommissioned and sold in 1921 where it was used as a sand and gravel barge and was later run aground at Woody Point, Redcliffe to serve as a break-wall in 1958.

    The related blog post has a video from the shoot and also a look into the lighting setup used. Check it out @ The Photo Journey

      What an amazing wreck! All those rust tones are fantastic.

      Gorgeous Scott...what a difference it makes having it all lit up like that. Great work,although I must say I really like the sky colour in the ambient shot.

      Steven Fudge Thanks mate. I was hoping for a few more clouds and morning light. Maybe next time

      Maria Haak Yeah was a great way to push my landscape images with the use of a strobe. Something i will do more of.

      .avina. Thanks mate. Nearly started to packup my gear then realised I needed a setup shot considering everyone likes them.

      kostolany244 Yeah I guess that is possible. I will be going back for a star trail shoot so I will give it a go.

      Allison Achauer I was amazed when I checked the exposure the great range of rust tones. Considering it was pitch black and I had never seen it before I was very excited.

      ~Zephyrus~ Thanks May. After seeing your shot earlier this year I knew I had to make a visit to the wreck

      awateatanga Thanks came out better then I had imagined.

      foxpony~CS Art photography Only lights were to the front side of the wreck. Rear light is only ambient. Flash did give it nice separation however.

      Not sure what to say about my voice/accent. lol I guess you dont hear many Australians.

      carrie knose lol hope my voice wasn't a disappointment. Really paid off getting up at 4am for the shoot.

      Tremendous results ... well worth the effort to get there and set up I'd say.
