Composition using Framing Leading lines - It was the last day of our holiday down in Augusta. Before we packed up, I woke up early and drove out to see if I could capture a better image of the Leeuwin Lighthouse.

Sunset Long Exposure Seascapes - In this landscape photography vlog, the kids and I drive down to Wyadup Bay and explore the rocks and coastline for the afternoon. Just south of the bay we discovered an interesting cove surrounded by rocks that were covered in green moss.

With the setting sun moving behind the cloud the light was fading fast, so I quickly set the Fuji X-T2 up on the trip with the Fujinon 10-24mm lens. On the front I had the Lee Filter mount with the 105m Lee Filter polariser to cut through any glare of the wet rocks and the surface of the water as well as the 0.9 soft graduated Lee Filter to reduce the light out in the sky so I had a more evenly exposed image. With an f-stop of f14 on ISO 200, this gave me a shutter speed of 1/4 of a second, just perfect to capture the waves as they crashed of the effervescent green rocks in the foreground the anchored the image well.

Making the most of the remaining light, I moved around to the centre of cove and captured two more image one with a 1/4 catching the waves crashing over the rocks again and then another image at 1 second, this time capturing the patterns of the foam as the water drained back out to sea.

Using the Fuji X-T2 for landscape photography is an enjoyable experience. It’s weight and size makes it easy to carry over hills and large boulders, the tilt (flip) screen makes it easier to view the image on the screen and and physical dials makes reading and adjusting the setting simple, quick and a joy. The X-T2 makes the whole experience of being out and capturing landscape images more enjoyable which is a big part of why I love landscape photography.

Waterfall Long Exposure Timing Shutter Speed - In this landscape photography vlog, I am back in Australia and exploring the beautiful Leeuwin coastline to try and find Quinninup Falls, north-west of Margaret River.

I started hiking north up the coast and was met with an abundance of wildlife and wildflowers, clearly spring is in full swing. I arrived at the Quinninup Falls just after sunrise not that it mattered because the sky was covered in a thick blanket of cloud so I wasn’t going to see the sunrise today. However I was spoilt with endless gorgeous views of this magnificent rugged coastline

Just as I entered the valley the rain set in. I explored the area for possible compositions while waiting for a break in the weather. Once the rain eased off, I set up my camera gear and adjusted my settings to ensure my shutter speed was between 1/4 and 1/2 a second. I have found this exposure time ideal for capturing waterfalls of this size. The achieve this I had the IOS at 100 and aperture at f16, on the 17-35 lens at a focal length of 20mm. To help get too these settings I had the 0.9 ND soft graduated filter from Lee Filters mounted on the front to darken down the sky. Along with the Lee Filter 105mm landscape circular polariser to take the glare of the wet rocks and foliage as well as the surface of the water.

Iceland Drone Footage DJI Mavic Pro - I hope you don’t mind but I've taken a break this week from the normal landscape photography vlog format and put together a montage of drone footage I captured while travelling around Iceland.

Now if you’ve been watching my videos, you’ll know that I like to experiment with the content I create as well as use different music in the background.

I must confess, I have a fairly wide ranging taste in music and I don’t expect that this week’s music will be to everyone’s liking. It was a song I heard before I left on my Iceland trip and it was stuck in my head while I was travelling around. It was always my intention to edit together a series of footage like this to music as summary of the wonderful time I had exploring this incredible landscape and unique country.

The is called Expanding by Johan Borjesson.

It was heaps of fun going through the drone footage from the Magic Pro to put this together.
