Recently a move from Cronulla to Adelaide has taken me away from the ocean. As a result I have rediscovered a passion for cycling. My desire to wear lycra has been rekindled and I have also become enthusiastic about shooting the cycling action I see around me. The Cycling Images website provides me with the opportunity to showcase some of these images that I have taken and will take as my period here in Adelaide evolves. The image above was shot with EOS 1DX DSLR using a Canon EF 8-15mm f4L fisheye lens at 1/400 shutter speed with an f-stop of f4.0 at ISO of 2000.

I first started shooting surfing back in the 70s. I took it up again in the mid 90s before digital and spent a number of years travelling and shooting surf action. The digital era ushered in a whole new way of shooting and processing which initially did not appeal to me. It was not long though before I emraced all that digital image making had to offer and never looked back. The image above was shot with EOS 1D MkIII DSLR in an Aquatech Waterhousing using a Canon EF 15mm f2.8 fisheye lens at 1/640 shutter speed with an f-stop of f5.0 at ISO of 200.

Oceanart was established to showcase the images that I have taken for the fine art photo Gallery my wife and I established in Cronulla.
The images are all of the ocean, waves, beaches with beautiful sunrises and sunsets depicting the beach lifestyle.
The Gallery is closed for the moment as we are travelling and collecting more images. The image above was shot with EOS 5D MkIII DSLR in an Aquatech Waterhousing using a Canon EF 8-15mm f4L fisheye lens at 1/1600 shutter speed with an f-stop of f4.0 at ISO of 400.

I just generally enjoy photography, both shooting images and the digital darkroom (Photoshop) as well. As an example I shot the image above whilst out shooting cycling in the Adelaide Hills. I was waiting for the bunch I was photographing to ride by. Standing by the side of the road, camera in hand this scene was just to beautiful to miss so I took a shot. The image was shot using a Canon 1DX DSLR, Canon EF 16-35mm f2.8L Mk II USM lens, focal length 16mm @ f4.0, shutter speed of 1/3200 and ISO 400. Image processed initially in Adobe Lightroom and finished in Adobe Photoshop.
