“The journey, not the destination matters” ~ T.S. Eliot
One of my favourite places to find beautiful light is in the car. I love turning around in my seat and taking a few sneaky photos while we’re driving.
Some days I just want to get my photo fix in the easiest way possible. There are so many beautiful places around here but photographically speaking, this one really ticks all the boxes and really is my happy place when I’m in a photography rut. We spent twenty minutes the other week watching the sun dip behind the horizon at the local jetty.
I wanted to extend a big thank you to everyone who has purchased my workshop and supported me. I’m really overwhelmed by the positive feedback I’ve received and all the incredible new people I have met on this journey. The workshop group is going strong and the last couple of weeks we have been working on an exercise aimed at identifying ‘holes’ in our portfolios – conditions such as light, perspective, subject matter, etc that we tend to avoid and then stepping out of our comfort zones to try new things. There were a few things – midday sun, low light/high ISO, shooting inside, and getting in the frame – that seemed to come up most. I was really blown away by the way the group tackled the challenge and the number of beautiful images that were made as a result. I’m posting a couple of my own below. I challenged myself to photograph in my lounge room which has very dark and very flat lighting. Then I went outside in the harsh sun and played around with shadows. I’ve posted a few more from the group members. I wish I could’ve posted them all but with so many in the album to choose from I could only pick a handful.
