More from my recent trip up north:

 

Dylan Lees Photography - Trails of Fire #2

 

Dylan Lees Photography - Cedar Waxwing Pair

 

Dylan Lees Photography - Pine Trunks

 

Dylan Lees Photography - Portrait of a Raccoon

 

More pictures can be found at my website than I'm going to post here, but I'll probably do a few more of my favorites.

 

I've also entered in the One Life photography contest, so if anyone else is part of that you can put in a vote for (or 'collect', as it's called) my portfolio after following the link in my signature. If you don't want to, that's fine as well.

Do you care If I crop this and use it as a desktop background? That's a really awesome shot!

I love my 480mm

 

 

 

My process is really simple for doing these type of portraits. I relax and just look for people in good lighting areas as I feel the light is 90% of the shot. The next thing I do shoot a bunch of shots as people are always moving and changing their facial expressions and angles. I will set the white balance for shade, plus a level of red to add warmth. I shoot with a 480mm lens so I keep my iso at 800 to keep the shutter speed at 1/400 at about F5.6 to F4.0. I don't use photo shop now but just use the jpegs out of the camera as I think they look better.

I read about this guy doing wedding portraits. He stated not using the raw files but only the jpegs out of the camera, un tweaked. He then explained how he always edged the white balance to get him some natural warmth. I though he was crazy and could not believe how I could live with-out my raw data and photo shop. I was not sure how to consistently warm up the white balance in every light? In the end though he was right. 

Now I know why he is one of the most in-demand wedding photographers in America.

An interesting view, although I disagree with it. It probably works better for portrait work than the kind of photography I typically engage in, however - modern cameras are already optimized quite well for human subjects. I view taking a straight out-of-the-camera JPEG much the same as using an automated development process instead of artistically developing the film yourself. You lose a lot of potential to bring out your vision of the final print.

Stay in Australia.

 

Rent a place around Katoomba/Blackheath and spend the time trolling around the Blue Mountains.
