Jamie Paterson – Images of Inspiration, Captivation, and Fascination

How Sweet it is!

When you get to capture this before heading into work.   On Saturday morning I had to be at work by 0600, so I got up a little earlier and headed out to Matilda Bay to check it out.  It wasn’t the greatest sunrise but for about 3 or 4 minutes there was a really intense golden yellow being pushed out from the sun, it set the mood for a fantastic Saturday.  Firstly work went well and then I got to meet a great bunch of people in the afternoon.   Hope you enjoy.

Thanks

Jamie Paterson

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy the 1Ds MkIII as much as I do. Before I answer the lens question, what are you going to use it for? I predominately use the 50mm F1.2, probably 90% of the time, otherwise I will use the 27-70mm lens, its a really versatile lens and I know others are getting great results out of it.

    Yo Jamie,
    Thanks for your reply. Basically I bought my 1ds for landscape but shoot weddings on sRAW as well. Ive only had 2 session shooting landscape with this camera and both times the sky was boring but still got ok shots. I used my 24-70 f2.8 and I really would like to shoot with a prime. I have a 100mm f2.8 and 50mm f1.4 which I love but now back into landscape Im thinking of 20mm f 2.8 as its cheap and should be sharp. The other option would be 24mm f1.4 which costs heaps. I use a polariser and gradient, is it my imagination or do filters stuff the quaility of your image ?

    cheers Steve

    Hi Steve,

    Cheap filters can have an affect on your photos however, if you look at Dylan’s work and Kirk’s work its sensationaly using affordable lenses. I use Singh Ray filters (be warned not cheap) and many others use Lee Filters.

    I’m not a big fan of really wide lenses for landscapes, prefer my 50mm, however people like Christian are using the 24mm for single shot images and the 50mm for stiching. Its all down to personal choice and $$$$$$.

    Dylan,

    Sorry I didn’t see your comment, it is Matilda Bay literally right out the front of UWA, probably the closest I’ll ever get to UWA. hehe.

    Hi again Jamie,
    Looked at the other guys sites and their work is brilliant.
    Is there many guys shooting landscape on digital or are they using the 6×17 film format.
    I have the slide in cokin filter system, would the glass lee’s be better ?

    Hi Steve

    They are all using digital. Kirk is using Cokin’s and Neal (Spool) and Christian both use Lee Resin filters. I believe the Lee filters should be better than the Cokin.

    Hi Jamie,
    Thanks for your advice the other day on filters. Im yet to get my 1Ds working on a nice landscape but sure the time will come. Today I went and bought a Lee filter system and one of the guys was saying that Christian Fletcher is using a 1Ds and a 50mm lens ??????? would this be true ? and how hard is it to stich images together ????
    Oh, and when are you looking to shoot another nice sunrise ? its a bit cloudy ?

    Hope to talk soon, Cheers, Steve.

    Hi Steve,

    Christian is quite open about the fact that he uses a 1Ds MkII and a 50mm lens for his stitching. In fact I use my 50mm f1.2 for almost everything as well. Stitching in certain circumstances can be extremely tricky. I guess the best way to learn about stitching is to have a go.

    I’m not sure when I’ll take my next landscape it depends on what Mother Nature throws at us. 🙂 If I feel a day is going to be a good day then I will duck out somewhere, until then I just impatiently wait around.

    Hi Jamie,
    I got up at 5am this morning to do a landscape shot. I didn’t expect anything fantastic to happen but thought finding a the right place first would be good and the fact I had just spent a lot of cash on filters fueled my desire to shoot.

    I did a jetty shot with my 50mm 1.4 and now having a go at stitching.
    I find it hard to get the whole image in focus even running it at f22 ?
    Keen as mustad to nail one, might see you out there one morning, thanks.

    Hi Jamie,
    I;m heading up north for a few weeks. I’m taking some soft ND grads, do you think I should take some hards ?

  30. This is such a great shot… the colours and the smoothness of the water.

    I’d like to add your link to my blog if that’s OK..

    Looking forward to more shots…

  32. Hi Jamie,

    been looking at some of your photos, really great work and can see the growth over the last six months. This is a beautiful shot. I actually went down there this morning after seeing your shot, but it was nothing like it. Still nice and glassy tho and a flash of colour for a short stint
