Haven’t taken many photos this week – a lot happening personally…

North Head

I don’t take many landscape photos these days but thought this scene was quite beautiful. Taken at North Head, a short walk from Manly, just after 7am. 🙂

Photography lesson 2: try a black & white/monochrome conversion

When conditions may not be perfect for shooting say a landscape shot – high noon or overcast/dull weather for instance, try converting your shot in to black & white or monochrome – often you’ll be surprised at the result! The shot below I was about to pass by until I converted it to black & white using Adobe’s Lightroom software and it brought out the moody atmosphere of the afternoon as the clouds were rolling in to Melbourne.

Photography lesson 1: wait for the light

I went to Kirribilli in North Sydney this evening to take a few Harbour Bridge/Opera House/Cityscape shots and just as I was about to pack up and leave this beautiful blue cast came across the sky and allowed me to capture the shot below. Lesson learned – wait at least 30-45mins after the sun has dipped below the horizon before you pack up and leave a site!
