Still experimenting with the Canon 5D Mark IV. Yesterday I took it to Sorrento and Shelley Beach. I think the image looks silent.
Camera gear is important if you want to take photos, and over the years you change with what you are taking photos off, along with how. I thought it might be fun to take a look at what gear I think I need for what I do now. Let’s say all my gear was stolen and I had to start again, what would I get. I don’t think I would end up with as much.
The 12 Apostles would have to be one of the most photographed natural wonders in Australia. They are right up there with the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru. Over 2 million visitors a year, not bad for a country that only has 24 million people living in it. When you are there you will find loads of tourist buses arriving from Melbourne filled with overseas visitors who want to see the wonders of the Great Ocean Road and this spot is the main draw card.
When Pam and Mike first arrived in Melbourne I did spend some time with them showing them around the city. I took them to Docklands and we came back via the river. I do love showing people my city.
While at the Docklands we had lunch at Mama Rumaan, one of my new favourite restaurants down there, then afterwards when we walked out we noticed the wonderful reflections in the water. It was perfect for some long exposures.
It has been. I’ve been trying to work out what to report on and there really isn’t that much. I do have a couple of things.
Australian Photography Magazine
I’m really excited that one of my articles has been accepted and now published in this magazine. It is an article on architectural photography. This one is not an article you could read online and if you are interested then you need to buy the magazine I’m afraid. Here is a link to it.
Today I just have an image for you. It was taken last week and is of St Kilda Pier. I was down there with a friend at sunrise and we were going to make the trip out on the rocks to do some long exposures, but it had been raining and we weren’t sure how safe it would be to walk out on the rocks. I was going to go, and I had my camera around my neck, but thought I should put it in my bag, just in case I slipped. I decided to take a couple of quick shots first, then I saw the photos on the back of the camera and thought, I have to do a long exposure here.
This post is usually done on a Friday, but to be honest, I don’t really have any news. I’m trying to get some articles written and I’ve been away for a few days. I thought perhaps we could just look at what I’ve posted to Instagram for the last week. We will see what happens in the following week.
Here are my Instagram images. If you do follow me on Instagram then you will also know that with each post I give tips on taking photos or processing them.
