Whenever you see a group of photographers together they all start talking gear. It just seems to be something that people who share a passion do. So podcast episode 015 is my conversation about the gear I use.
Often when people contact me for One on Ones Photography Lessons the area they want to photograph is along the river with the bridges. The Yarra River, that goes through the city, has many bridges going over it. While they aren’t massive big expanses like some bridges around the world, we do have some interesting ones. I thought it might be interesting to take a look at the bridges. I haven’t got photos of all of them, but I do have the interesting ones.
The bridges are as follows:
- Bolte Bridge
- Webb Bridge
- Seafarers Bridge
- Sandridge Bridge
- Evan Walker Bridge
- Princes Bridge
I have photographed them many times, so there are quite a few photos of each one.
I’m busy trying to finish everything off before I leave tomorrow. I hope you are having a good weekend.
As per usual I’ve had a few photos up on Instagram this week and will put them into a gallery for you, but first I wanted to tell you about a tutorial I wrote for Digital Photography School. Here is the link:
It is one of those tutorials that you might look at and say you don’t want to do, but for those of you who want to learn more about post processing this is a great one. You will learn how to use layers, layer masks, how to copy a layer mask and how to put more than one image together. Try it, see what you can do and then see how you can use the skills on other images.
Give it a try and see how you go.
I’ve been experimenting with the Samyang 12mm Fisheye a lot this week and I know I put up a heap of photos the other day, but there are some in this next selection that haven’t been here before.
The lens has to go back to the company soon, it has been incredible to play around with. I might have to consider adding one to my kit sometime.
I will leave you with the gallery.
The other night I went into the city to take some photos of the Bolte Bridge. I had wanted to do the sunset there. I met my friend Chris and we made our way to the base of it. On the way I put the Samyang 12mm fisheye on and took lots of photos with it.
I have been writing a review on the lens and that has been a great excuse to get out and try it out. It is such an interesting way of seeing the world. I think you will again.
Here is a gallery of images. I hope your weekend is going well. Here it has been raining on and off all day, also been very cold. Apparently summer isn’t quite ready to arrive yet, I’m complaining mind you.
It is more week 19 and some of this week, but I’m sure you will forgive me for the confusion. It has been an interesting week on Instagram and some of the photos I’ve posted have been by far some of my favourites. Most were taken in the last week, but a couple are old ones that I’ve just worked on now.
Anyway enough from me, I hope you like them too.
