Andrea Green Photography New Website & Blog

Filed under: Landscapes — andreagreenphotography @ 9:34 am

Hi Everyone,

Sorry that I have not been posting for such a long time I have been flat out getting ready to launch my new website YEAH.

Then I can’t believe I got the dreaded flu that’s been going around. I’m not having a great winter, I never get much of anything and this winter I was not well in June and then now I have been the sickest I’ve ever been in my life and seriously I am SO not joking. I don’t know how far spread this flu is but I know that in Western Australia a lot of people are getting hit with it. The worst thing is that it is the full blown flu that knocks you for 6, and when I say 6 I think I mean 100. It is so bad it’s just not funny, then to top it off I ended up with bronchitis which a lot of people are getting from this flu. I’ve never been so sick and I now appreciate the fact that I am usually so healthy. Bronchitis is quite frightening, not being able to breathe properly is not a nice thing and it takes forever to go away. So in total I have been unwell for about 3 weeks. At least now I am just about back to my normal old self, woohoo.

So I would recommend dosing up on vitamin c, eat healthy, keep yourself warm, try to relax so you keep your stress levels down and give yourself a break! Just my suggestion for keeping flu free.

Anyway to get on with what I am really wanting to tell everyone, my new website and blog has been launched so please come on over and check it out. I will keep this blog for the time being until I can get everything changed over and then I will end up shutting it down.

My web address is http://www.andreagreenphotography.com and the new blog link is http://www.andreagreenphotography.com/home/blog/

Hope to see you all there to check out my new baby, maternity and landscape  posts that are coming.

Cheers

Andrea

Easter Dwellingup

This photo was taken down in Dwellingup as well.

This is a spot where we love to go camping. The camp ground is on a river and it has a section that we call the rapids. They’re aren’t really big rapids or anything like that but the kids think it’s fun to go down “The Rapids.” It depends on whether there is a lot of water or not as to what photo’s you can get there, if the water is flowing heaps and the water level is high you get shots like this one, if the water is low you can get lot’s of little waterfall type shots.

It’s really cool to have the variety and you don’t know what your going to get until you get there. It’s a surprise every time.

Woodman Point Sunset 2nd Edition

I posted a shot of Woodman Point quite a while ago and I thought it was awesome. Somehow I overlooked this one which I think is heaps better so I thought why not post it, so here it is.

The Pinnacles Funny Face

There are so many cool looking Pinnacles. You have ones that just look like big rocks, some like dinosaurs and some like my funny face Pinnacle. It’s so much fun looking at all of the different shapes, sizes, faces and all sorts, you can just keep shooting and shooting and you just don’t get bored.

I love this photo, I think it looks like a really cool one eyed face.

Frangipani

I don’t really do macro photography and I’m not a real flowery kind of person but I like to have a go at different things, I’m always up for a challenge and I love meeting new people and getting fresh ideas and inspiration. Anyway I had a go at some flowers and here’s one of the shots I took of a neighbours frangipani. I actually really like frangipani’s which is one of the few flowers that I do really like.

Fortescue Falls Karijini

These photos were taken at Fortescue Falls in Karijini National Park. We camped near here and so we went down everyday to the falls as well as to another area not far away which is called Fern Pool. These are all in Dales Gorge, which so far is my favourite gorge at Karijini, although I did miss one so next time we’ll see if it stays my favourite.

I can’t decide between the crops of this photo so I thought I’d post the original shot and then a crop from the top to get rid of the trees and also one that has still kept the aspect ration but it means that it comes in pretty tight on the sides of the waterfall.

Let me know what you think looks best, I can’t decide. I’m thinking the crop from the top so I keep the whole waterfall but I’m not sure if it looks too wide.

Karijini Panoramic

I haven’t really done any panoramic shots and actually finished putting them together and showed anyone yet so here goes. This was taken up in Karijini Western Australia. It’s such an amazing place and I can’t wait to go up there again and actually get in a huge amount of shooting. When I went last time I really didn’t have a lot of opportunity to be able to take my camera so next time look out.

I think that next time I’d like to have a go with a panoramic the same as this but maybe use my 85mm so that I can get in a bit more of the background. Once you see it come together it gives you a bit more perspective.

What do you think?

Karijini

Filed under: Landscapes — Tags: , — andreagreenphotography @ 3:05 pm

A couple of people I know have been to Karijini National Park recently  which is about 1400 kilometers from Perth and it made me realize that I haven’t posted any of my photos from the trip that I did there last October.

My husband had to go up North for a week for work and it was school holidays so I decided that seeings how he was away and I’d been wanting to go to Karijini  for ages, bugger it I’d go on a road trip. It was a last minute thing that I decided to do a couple of weeks before hand and it just so happened that a great friend of mine was on holidays so I asked her if she wanted to come, she said yes so off we went.

It was a pretty huge trip to do as I had to drive that far, plus I had my two kids in the back of the car together and I’d never been so far away with out my husband but you know what, it was absolutely amazing. Ok so I had to drive the whole way myself bar one hour and set everything up at the camp when we got there after driving so far, plus as it turned out I was getting crook, but there was no stopping me. I was determined to make the most of it.

I knew when I went that I probably wouldn’t be able to do a lot of photography but I didn’t mind because I just wanted to see the place and get an idea of what I could do for the next trip. My husband called it my reconnaissance mission which I thought sounded pretty cool.

It was pretty difficult trying to carry camera gear, plus water and food for the day for myself and the kids but the kids were great and they were able to carry some things which took some of the weight off of me, but it was still a hard slog and it makes you realize that those men of ours certainly do come in handy.

Anyway it was an amazing trip. I think I would be a bit reluctant to go without my hubby again, but hey I did it and certainly would never regret it and the kids and I had the most amazing adventure so what more can you ask for. I even managed to take a few shots that I think turned out pretty good.

Here’s one of the photos that I got in Dales Gorge, my favourite place up there so far. This was just a tiny part of  a really great spot in the gorge that had all of these little waterfalls. Hope you like it.

Another shot from Matilda Bay

This is another shot from Matilda Bay. I wanted to get something in the foreground but there isn’t a lot to choose from so I decided to try it out with one of the trees on the foreshore. I think it turned out pretty good.

Let me know what you think.

Cottesloe Silhouette

This photo was taken at the top of the groin on the left side of Cottesloe Beach Perth WA. I was looking at all of the guys on their stand up paddle boards thinking “how do they do that?” It always amazes me, they must have really good balance. Anyway while I was having a look this image struck me so here it is. I like how you can see all the ships on the horizon, they look so tiny but really they are huge.

Hope you enjoy.
