So, spring is here - lets see some climbing photos!

We have finally been able to take advantage of living at the red, and do some climbing. I even brought the photo gear a couple days. Most of these are using flash of some sort or another, just built a bit better hand held flash bracket, so I can use two or three speedlights now. Still dialing in the off camera stuff with on a rope, but it is pretty cool stuff to work with.

As I sit here tonight watching the snow slowly fall... I hate you.

As for the pics, I like what you are doing with depth of field. Its always my favorite technique to say "hey you! look over here!"

Nice looking work Wes. How about a picture of you with your new bracket in action?

Nice shots Wes.

So far this year I haven't been able to shoot as much as I wanted but a couple of my favorites have been rotating on the frontpage here.
My 7 year old laptop is near death so post-processing is extremely limited...just doing crop, contrast and saturation adjustments. I've got a couple more trips coming up so hopefully I can improve my techniques.

The Splitter pic was accidently underexposed by probably 4 or 5 stops, b&w was the only way it could be "saved"



This one was heavily cropped but I liked how it turned out.

Are you sure about that? I know I'm looking at a small image, but there's hardly any noise and the histogram is pretty heavy on the right. I'd be curious to see the original.

Don't get me wrong though; I think the B&W works really well with this shot.

I'll have to check the EXIF on the originals at home. I didn't host that pic on another site.

Thanks much for the kind words - love sports and nature, just wished they paid better!

The bracket isn't anything special, a manfrotto umbrella adapter with a super clamp holding a cheap umbrella adapter sideways, which then has two flash zebra shoe adapters holding two 580 EX II's. I was using a bigger version of this, but it was too bulky. Will try to get out with the new setup next week sometime.

Cool photos, dlinz! Hope some more people post up!

Thought Id add a few Ive taken over recent weeks (altho its now coming into Winter here Frown)


Please excuse my lazyness for not editing these photos yet (some could use a crop/adjustment) but I currently got tendonitits so can't use my mouse for long periods at the moment.


First up....

Jamie on Polly, International Terrorist at Ti Point, Auckland (5.12a/24)



Next are all from Froggatt Edge, Central North Island.

Cliff on a 28 (5.13a) I think its called 'Burn'







Then some of Ant and Chris on an easy slab at Froggatt (5.10 something, 19 nz scale)

Depth of field is sweet! How low an F?

I like this one!

Is that a dunny in the background? Laugh



I really just have these ones to contribute right now from a nice 5.7 at Red Rock. Have a few more to come though.

Decided to throw one of mine on here... It's at Rumney. I know next to nothing about photography, but I thought this was an alright picture.

Thanks much - that was at F2 on a 135mm lens (which is fast becoming my favorite climbing lens). Used high speed synch on the flash to allow a pretty fast shutter.

My guess is that you donít have that lens attached to a point and shoot camera? What camera do you use?

Great shots by the way. The DOF is outstanding!

Nice shots, Wes. I think they may be too contrasty or something for my taste. I can't quite place it. They're good though. 135mm f/2 Is a sweet lens. I hope Pentax decides to make something like that. If I could add one thing to their line up, it would be that.

I throw a few in from my month in Joshua Tree.


Some Random boulder in Josh. I'm sure it has a name and rating...


Spider Line - 5.11c

I Love this picture. The lighting is fantastic, really shows off the natural features of the rock. Keep up the good work!

Nice shots Chris!

I haven't shot much climbing lately (shots below are from a job in Yellowknife a few weeks ago, more on my blog) but I'm now in the UK & will be shooting all through Europe over the coming months so I'll have something climbing to post soon!

Alpine, Josh,
Nice work. I like the composition of the bouldering shot, and the drama of the helicopter shot.
