Saw this beauty on Cuba Street in Wellington. I think it’s a Morris pick up, but am happy to be corrected if anyone knows what make it is.
This is a staircase on the side of a 1970’s concrete building in Wellington, New Zealand. The whole building is a brilliant example of brutalist architecture.
I spent ages working on this image, trying to find the correct balance of shadow and light, and the right amount of detail within the shadow. I suspect it will be an image I return to again and again tweaking and changing, as my mood takes me.
A small group of us ventured into Pukekura Park in New Plymouth, whilst the TSB Festival of Lights was taking place, so that we could incorporate them into an evenings Astro Photography. I used 2 different set ups as I still cannot decide which I prefer for my Astro images, the first shot was with a Fuji X-E2 and an 18mm lens, and the second shot was with a Canon 5DMK3 and a 24mm lens.
Both sets of images were stacked in Starstax software.

I recently shot Sarah Haden, a 14 year old teen from Taranaki, who won the title of Miss Teen Taranaki 2015 earlier in the year. She wanted a fresh shoot wearing her winners tiara, before she had to return it at the of the year. Having already had some cutesy shots taken earlier in the year, she was looking for something a bit different, and a bit edgier than before. Hopefully we managed to do this.
Both shots, Canon 5D MK3, 70-200 f2.8, speedlight mounted in a softbox to camera left just out of shot, triggered manually.
