“Photography:  Painting and Drawing with Light”







The decision I took to take up amateur photography more seriously, at the beginning of this year, has proven to be profound.  It has been an incredible creative endeavour which in turn, has had a positive influence on my sense of wellbeing.  The inclusion of my hubby’s company while I photographed various locations around the state of Victoria, Australia has been such a lovely way of spending time together. Learning to master my new camera and lens, and then learning the ins-and-outs of Lightroom 6 – has also been an enjoyable challenge.







During the latter part of 2017 – I used a compact system camera, a Sony A7 Mark II – Full Frame with a Sony A FE24-240mm F3.5-6.3 OSS Lens. For some of the shots, I used the camera hand-held, and for others, I used the camera mounted on a tripod with a remote timer.  I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.







After each photography adventure, I downloaded all the photographs into Adobe Lightroom 6.  From this point I selected only those images I felt worthy of development and below are my photographic favourites for 2017!
