Water People 04.12.2012

I had a really good time shooting these ten photos down at Bondi Beach this morning. I hope it shows.

The water was immaculate, warm and clear. The sun was out baking without a cloud of hindrance in the sky. Wind – there was none. Waves – none of those either. Well I guess I few knee cappers.

It’s days like these that are torturous to be working 200 metres from the water’s edge. I’m glad I got up early for a 1 hour swim already. I do love my job.

Today’s focus is on the people who love the ocean from 19 month old Jet to Henry Crouch – the people that are down there daily that I see on my morning travels. These are happy people.

    Hi Eug,

    firstly let me say if theres one email I always look at every morning its yours, always “always” first class images, great stuff.

    However, I have noticed over the last two days, the foreground blur you have been adding has a rather crisp edge and is somewhat noticable, I only noticed yesterday in the first shot and the shot of Little Sam…and a few again today…just wanted to make you aware of what I see as a viewer of all things photographic.

    Cheers mate
    Rob

      Thanks Rob. Yeah just playing with depth of field, but it’s nothing new. Being doing it for about 5 years like this!

    • Yuri said |

      i agree. here’s my 2 cents:
      Blurring works very fine in general and i love the Phil picture for instance. But on Amber and Arlen, the difference are so crisp, it looks too photoshoped, to the point Arlen’s face looks like it was copy/pasted there on top of the landscape.

  • Jessica said |

    This morning was amazing do you have any more shots ! ! !

  • snappystreet said |

    Amazing! I grew up at the beach (Coffs Harbour) and miss it daily.

    Living in the Inner West means I very rarely get to head down (damn city life!) so I thoroughly enjoy your photographs daily. You have such an amazing eye for capturing all the ocean has to offer!
