Last night I visited a few bridges in Sydney to create some light trail images. The first couple I went to didn’t have great vantage points but I was able to lean my camera right off the edge of this bridge on High Street overlooking the freeway which actually feeds onto the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Harbour tunnel. This is looking north and on the left you can see the North Sydney CBD. 

The shot is composed of about 9 images- 6 for the trails and then 3 to create more depth using Luminance masks. It was an exciting little project and I hope to find some more spost like this within my city. 

Suggested Tutorial:

– Luminance Masks and HDR Video Tutorials A series of tutorials by Jimmy Mcintyre that will change your workflow forever. Powerful, informative and well priced- definitely worth a look.

Software Used:

– On1 Photosuite  the complete collection of photo editing software from OnOne

-NIK Collection

– Adobe Photoshop CC  used to layer, mask, make adjustments plus much much more. The Photoshop Photography plan allows you access to Photoshop and Lightroom for $9.99/month, definitely worth checking out.
