Story Bridge, Brisbane | Sunrise

I had an early start and needed to pick up some materials for work around Hendra so I headed in super early to Wilsons Outlook a the top of Bowen Terrace overlooking the Story Bridge. I set up my Nodal Ninja to take a series of panoramas, I especially like this one as the sky was just changing and the stars were still visible in the sky.

It took about 30 minutes for my fingers to thaw once I was back in the car.

I read a tutorial in a photographic magazine recently about using your iPhone and iPad to light up your subject so I just had to give it a go. I downloaded an app called “Soft Box Pro” which allows you to select colours and patterns to include in your image. I set up the iPhone to the front right just out of shot with a plain white screen to light the front of the camera. I then set up the iPad with black and orange stripes and moved it around the back of the camera during a long exposure. Pretty simply technique and I am very happy with the result.
