On Wednesday the 26th of July we were lucky enough to get the opportunity to shoot the mammoth 333-meter long super-carrier, USS Ronald Reagan.
The Port of Brisbane Corporation commissioned this shoot to memorialise the largest US military ship docking in Brisbane in over 2 years.
We liaised with the US embassy, Port of Brisbane Corporation and air traffic control in order to make this shoot happen.
We were given clearance to operate in airspace surrounding the giant ship except directly above it. It turns out there will always be some restrictions in place around a nuclear-powered warship.
Below are some of the shots that were captured of the immense vessel.
Delivering a client a great set of images takes more than just having a skilled photographer with the right equipment.
The final and one of the most important steps in the process of delivering stunning images to our clients, is the post processing of the raw images.
Post processing can make a great image even better, however, when deadlines are tight sometimes waiting for idyllic conditions to shoot a great image is not always an option.
When this is the case, extra time spent processing the raw image files can make all the difference between a photo looking okay or fantastic.
Below is the before and after of an image shot on a hazy evening from Newstead back towards the city.
