The old boat shed on the Swan River. Another iconic landmark shot that every photographer who goes to Perth will have a stab at. I like the way this turned out but it wasn’t easy. Those boards leading to the shed were slippery, wobbly, and not all there. I wanted a long exposure to get the movement of the clouds so the camera had to be rock steady for 30 seconds but even with the tripod as solid as I could get it, just standing behind the camera caused movement because the walkway is so unstable. The only way around it was to set everything up how I wanted it then use the timer delay on the camera to open the shutter in 20 seconds time (the longest delay) and slowly walk back far enough that I wasn’t affecting the camera. With the slipperiness of the boards, the odd gap here and there and the tripod balanced on the narrow slats, it wasn’t hard to imagine it all ending in tears.

Note: Both paper and canvas prints come rolled in acid free tissue paper inside a heavy-duty mailing tube (signature is required upon delivery).

The standard sized paper prints - A2, A1 and AO - are designed to fit off-the-shelf frame sizes but for custom framing (like the panorama prints which aren't standard sizes), I'd recommend taking them to a professional framer.

The canvas prints are much harder to do yourself so should also be taken to a framer. All the canvas prints have a mirror wrap edge (sometimes called gallery wrap) which means the image appears to continue around the side of the frame but it's actually a copy of the image, as if the image were held against a mirror. This way none of the image is 'lost' around the side, it just looks that way.

If you have any questions about the prints, the images or anything else, I'm always available through the contacts page.

Andrew.
