I generally have a love-hate relationship with sunset photography. I love experiencing them in real life, but I really don't like sunset photos.

Two vintage radios found on opposite sides of the world

Two vintage radios found on opposite sides of the world

by Andrew Smith June 11, 2017

A few years ago I found this very rare vintage radio in Auckland New Zealand. I took a few cool shots of it and it's been used on a number of commercial projects. A few days ago I had a nice email from someone 12,000km's away in Colombia who found another one of these vintage radios! My friend Hernando took a pic of it, here it is below - totally cool. I love how social media allows us to connect with people from different backgrounds, cultures, and geographic locations. It made my day!

Travel Destinations | Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia

Travel Destinations | Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia

by Andrew Smith May 28, 2017

Bondi Beach is one of the most visited sites in Australia, it's located about 7 km east of the Sydney. It's definitely one of my favourite spots to visit and take photos. There are loads of things to do, including surf lessons. If you get bored of the beach there are loads of cafes and an eclectic array of shopping markets. If you are up for some exercise don't forget the coastal walks.

In simple terms split toning is the process of adding different colours to the shadows and the highlights of an image. It can be used to create more emotive colour palette or used to replicate various effects. Split toning is perfect for vintage film processing, advanced black and white techniques, and also controlling colour when desaturating.

Vintage beach processing.

I've added some slightly vintage processing to this shot of St Heliers Beach in Auckland New Zealand. This includes softening the sky colour and making sure the sand and timber colours were pushed towards a more burnt orange. It definitely reminds me of those long hot New Zealand summers at the beach.

Photographic Diary

by Andrew Smith April 14, 2017

I have been wanting to design a travel photography book for a while now. I've started putting together some new cover designs around the idea of Kilometres, or in this case just Kilo. I like that it can be interpreted in a number of ways. I love documenting the trips I take and then sharing them with family and friends. In many cases thousands of images usually just stay on our computers never to be viewed again.
