The Process of Constant Improvement

Sunday – It was good to get out of Sydney for a couple of days and head down the coast to Gerroa to celebrate my older brother Brett’s birthday.   Gerroa is about 1.5-2 hours drive south of Sydney.  Brett and his partner Raylene had rented a unit on the beach for a couple of weeks – the view was pretty good, uninterrupted views east out to ocean, looking south down the full length of Seven Mile Beach with Shoalhaven Heads, Culburra and Jervis Bay in the distance and then west out over the escarpment to the setting sun.  

I had originally planned to test some new video equipment but just wasn’t ready in time – you quickly realise that although it’s quick to take a shot – if it doesn’t excite and stand out then it’s just another snap shot.  

To give you the idea following are a couple of panoramas – one a fair bit of camera setup and post production work (couple of hours work) and the other just taken with my i-phone using Microsofts Photosynth (a few minutes).

You ask is it worth the time and energy?  If you like it – then of course it is.  By doing lots of work you get better – you develop your own style – this  “Process of Constant Improvement”.   

 That reminds me – I need to do some more fashion and lingerie shots.

 A series of around 27 images (3 layers multiple exposures by 9 frames to create panorama) and Photoshop post production.  Size (500mb)  

Taken with my I-phone and Microsoft Photosynth application (size .1 Mb)
