We’re Moving…

G’day all,
I’ve been busy over the last week, and as such the site will be moving to it’s new home RobBrooksPhotography.net I hope you’ll come over to the new site after I actually get it fully loaded and running.
But in the meantime, this is still where I’ll be uploading content. So until we actually move completely, please keep checking out my work and what i’ve been up to.

There is more to be uploaded in the coming week.

Cheers
Rob

Surf Photography: Remarkable Caves

Here’s a few recent shots from another of my favourite passtimes, surf photography. Although I’m reluctant to get out of bed very early, I tagged along with a couple of my mates from Eaglehawk Neck last Saturday afternoon to chill out and see what I could capture.

While the surf itself was nothing to write home about particularly, by all reports it was genuinely fun.  While I’m not producing outstanding images as those seen by another local surf photographer, Stuart Gibson here’s a small collection form the day.
This also highlighted my need for a longer telephoto lens…

More New Toys

Over the past month I’ve collected a few more bits and pieces to add to my gear-bag.

The most important addition being a new Canon EOS 40D dSLR body.  This is the bigger brother to my previous body, the 400D.  While i won’t bore you with technical specifications, they can all be found HERE, including a detailed revie, there are a number of differences which make is simply easier to use and can help produce better images.

The formalities were over and now was the time to relax and let some hair down. Some let down more hair than others.

HPS Annual Exhibition

Today in my lunch break I wandered down to the Waterside Pavillion in Mawson Place on the Hobart waterfront to have a browse around the Hobart Photographic Societies Annual Exhibition.

It is designed as a showcase for both established photogrpahers and also up-and-coming photographers to show off a small collection of their best work.  There is a great mix of different styles from sweeping landscapes, architecture through to intimate portraits.

So to have a look at some great local photography, head on down this week.  Entry is via gold coin donation.

Gone South

Here’s a couple of images from a recent weekend at Catamaran, near Southport and Cocle Creek in far South Tasmania.

The beach is basically private, with only two or three properties having access to it, abundant with fish, abalone, rock lobster and even Calamari squid.

Absolutely perfect location for a lazy day by, or on the water, in one of the most untouched parts of Tassie.

McGinniss Wedding Reception

Here are a few shots from the wedding reception that I shot for some good friends of mine.
The entire day was a great learning experience for me, and hopefully I’ve captured some important memories for them to look back on in the future.

NOTE: If any friends or family would like to purchase prints of any of the images from the day, just contact me @ brooksrl@telstra.com and I’ll be happy to discuss the options.

Prints will be sourced from my un-compressed, high-resolution original files. And are available in a number of different sizes, finishes and products.

First wedding shoot, pretty pleased

On the weekend just passed I had the pleasure/ challenge of shooting my first wedding for some friends of mine, although it was only the reception and some family portraits beforehand.
Given the constraints I had from time for shooting, the large amount of people and combinations that they wanted, and dealing with weather conditions (quite windy and late afternoon sun) I’m relatively happy with the raw results from the camera.
