This 1940's California Bungalow is being auctioned through one of Perth's leading Western Suburbs Real Estate agents that specialises in the Claremont area. This beautifully presented original home has been seamlessly and tastefully extended to suit a modern families lifestyle requirements.
I was lucky to experience a stunning Sunset and cloud formation that made shooting the exterior of the property easy. For the front photograph, a long exposure allowed me to capture the warm glow of the internal lights and fire an off camera flash into the foliage of the tree which threatened to dominate the sky.
This home is currently open for viewing and more details can be found here.

Recently i got down to photograph the South Fremantle Power Station. Wow - What a sensory overload. Wall to wall graffiti, every square inch of the ground covered in broken glass, spray cans everywhere...It was amazing.
I cant wait to go back. I was so in awe of the place, i found myself just watching and exploring rather than just taking photographs. I desperately need to go back soon and shoot the Heritage listed building again and focus on sections that i missed or take from another angle.
It wasn't until it was almost dark that my photography partner Leo and I discovered the staircase that took us to the upstairs section that opened up another range of stunning photo oportunites.
The photographs above have been processed using HDR (High Dynamic Range) overlaying three different exposures of the one setting to bring out such vibrant colours, intensity and contrast. After the RAW files have been HDR processed using photoshop CS5 the resulting 32bit images were then processed a second time using the Photomatix plugin filter which amplified the HDR result even more.
The final stage was to convert the image to 16bit and then use the dodge and burn tool to create focus points in each of the images.
I think this building would be very intimidating and powerful in Black & White as well. I need another trip down ASAP to re-shoot. For a personal project this has been really rewarding and challenging shoot. I still think I'm yet to get the best out of the building as far as graffiti and architectural photography goes. As its really is one of the best places to photograph in Perth or even Western Australia.
This trip has tripped a switch within me and I'm keen to explore some of the other unused heritage listed building througho
