Lady Barron Creek, Falls & Forest

Postby Mickeymoo » Mon 25 May, 2009 10:47 pm

Gday all, I went for a little wander on sunday to Lady Barron Falls, there was some good water flowing, a little chilly on the legs after a few hours of standing in it :D and there was plenty of fungi on the forest floor to keep me busy, and it was nice and overcast which was a bonus. Here are a few that I got.

Cheers,
Michael.

Nice set Michael!

For those toadies- what sort of lighting did you use, if I may ask?

Nice pics, but last time I was there the water wasn't so blurry :lol: :lol:

It was all natural lighting on the fungi shot, it was amlost a perfect natural set up for the photo, the angle which I wanted to shoot from had nice diffuse light from the right hand side, I was quite lucky with that one, setting were from memory ISO 50, f/16 and 45 seconds.

Wow. The depth and clarity is outstanding. It's easy to feel like you are actually there. :)

You've done exceptionally well to not get any background ferns blurring due to the long shutter speed. Whenever I'm out there always seems to be just a puff of breeze that ruins it.

Great shots!

Yeah it was unusually calm down in the stream, even up closer to the falls where there is usually a lot of cool air pooling and causing turbulence, I was quite lucky to get minimal foilage movement, and also trying to avoid using any foilage as a central part of the compositions helps a bit.

A nice set of waterfalls Michael. My favourites are the shorter exposures, 3-10 sec.

Cheers, Lex

Hi Michael. As part of the update of the Wiki I added a link to this topic in the List of Waterfalls.
