Western Australian Wild Flowers

September 1st, 2011 at 4:06pm

While out and about last weekend looking over countless flowers one can become ( well me anyway ) totally confused with how to photograph these flowers. Now no one does anything completely without relying somewhat on what they have seen heard or felt as inspiration, and for the life of me I was going through countless files in my head on how to shot photograph these flowers with some sort of new approach to a degree …

Lucky for me just a week before I was shooting I saw an image of a photographer “Jon Paul” (one of my favorites) who has a amazing gallery in the USA. His use of in camera movement experimentation at a location in Lake Tahoe I thought needed none but somehow his interpretation was just perfect. WHile I am no way saying this picture of mine is perfect, it does somehow some up how I felt looking at these flowers by the end of the weekend … Now not a complete in camera movement image as there is actually 3 images here plus a 3 image stitch for size and resolution purposes … But you get the idea ….

  1. Amazing.. I love the effect mate.. reminds me of Peter Lik’s latest work.. or the work of the impressionists.. love it :)

  2. Cheers Paul … i think i know the image you are taking about … Man would be nice a get a cool mil for an image ….

  3. We can but dream Neal.. and work out way towards it :)

  4. I think the answer lies in teaming with a full time manager agent …

  5. And a whole team of people doing most of the other work for you.. got to say though.. I love his work, always have, practically grew up in his Noosa gallery :)

  6. I really love his older work … stuff I was seeing in the late 90′s … but I have to say the stuff I saw in his galleries late last year left me a little wondering what had happened … He is the single biggest reason I take my photography as seriously as I do though … When i saw his work back in the 90′s it just blew my mind …

  7. Would have been the same period for me, I’ve not actually been in one of his galleries for about 6 years now.

  8. I was lucky to visit a few of his in Hawaii last year … was an interesting experience to see how he has progressed from the gallery I saw 14 years earlier in Port Douglas …

  9. Really like this one Neal! Does remind me of the million dollar shot! Just need to hipe it up heaps and you’ll be sorted!!

  10. Cheers Steven … Yeah not always an easy thing LOL ….

  11. Awesome effect! Wildflower season is my fave time of the year :)
