This year’s ironman started an hour or so later than 2012 which meant there was better light to capture the start. More pics here.
A selection of my images from the F1. More here.
Selected images from the Australian Barista Championship. Getting interesting images from a 10-15 minute routine is challenging, and it’s non-stop for 3-4 hours. Not as easy as it looks – definitely in the category of “sports” photography! More here.
At last, a soccer match that’s not in the mid afternoon sun. Here are some photos from Round 24 at AAMI Park
It’s that time of the year again and I’m covering the Australian Grand Prix for the third time. Day One sees no F1 cars on the track but there’s a bit of behind the scenes preparation including the driver portraits. Here are some behind the scenes. You can see the images here and on Corbis.
Shot yesterday’s A-League match with the 1D C (which is apparently a 1D X with video) and a 400mm. Very happy with the result. Images are different to the Nikon D4 – the JPEGs don’t have as much detail or latitude to tweak as the D4 but the RAW files seem to have more dynamic [...]
I didn’t realise there was so much interest in the Canon 200-400mm f4 lens as Nikon has had one for years and it’s already in its second generation. I borrowed the lens from CPS (Canon Professional Services) when I was shooting the Australian Open two weeks ago and can confirm Joshua Holko’s review from his [...]
I shot my third Australian Open for Cal Sport Media. My images also wound up on their partners’ sites: Associated Press AP, Belga News Agency, ZUMApress, Newscom, Newspix, and Sipa Press. Looking forward to 2014.
The Canon 1D X can shoot at 12 frames per second (fps) and the Nikon D4 at 10 fps with complete auto focus. They can both shoot a bit faster with no auto focus after the first frame but that’s not much use in most sports situations. At the Australian Open last week I shot [...]
Shooting my third Australian Open. Here are some highlights and a recap of the first eleven days. Enjoy! Day 11 Day 10 Day 9 Day 8 Day 7 Day 6 Day 5 Day 4 Day 3 Day 2 Day 1
I missed shooting this event in 2012 but am back for this year. It’s a lovely warm up tournament for the players and the photographers. Here’s a link to the images: http://sydlow.photoshelter.com/gallery/AAMI-Classic-2013/G0000aUGGLlLihQI/
Last month I shot the Melbourne Victory women’s team over 3 sessions. You can check them out here: And here’s a behind the scenes setup shot of the 3-lights setup in a small changing room at their training ground:
What a mouthful. This post is about how to connect cameras wirelessly to an iPad so images can be edited and captioned, and uploaded live to services on the Internet live during an event. For most agency and wire service photographers, the typical setup is to ingest images from their cameras’ memory cards via a [...]
Warm up at soccer matches aren’t the most interesting of things to photograph. Here’s a go at doing something creative. Some slow shutter speed zoom and pan blurs:
Photos from the first home round for the Melbourne Victory in the W-League competition. More photos on MFootball.
Melbourne Victory just posted this on YouTube:
A selection of images from this season opener. Live images worked well with images used by @gomvfc and @melbfootball – More images on MFootball and Melbourne Victory.
You can’t always shoot with a tilt-shift lens but you can now create the effect pretty convincingly with Photoshop CS6. Here are a few photos from last year with the effect applied:
It’s pre-season for the A-League and Melbourne Victory have started their training matches. These matches are at the grounds of semi-professional teams from the Victorian Premier League. The grounds are lit well enough for playing but for photography it’s a challenge. To stop the motion it’s best to shoot at 1/000th of a second. At [...]
International rugby doesn’t come to Melbourne very often, but it’s good when it does! More photos here.
Good to shoot some action. Lots of options shooting rugby – tight, loose and everything else in between. Here are a couple of shots:
