This photography adventure back in May this year involved visiting the Docklands Waterfront, city of Melbourne, Victoria – Australia with the Craigieburn Camera Club. Our goal was to gain a better understanding and experience of night photography. It was a lovely evening, not too cold and a sprinkle of rain had wet the pavement surfaces just enough to help reflect colourful neon lighting which shone from surrounding city buildings. Strolling through the city’s water’s edge during the night in a group felt most safe, and such a pleasure to be able to take night photographs without worrying about our safety…
PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED
During this cityscape photography exercise – 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 these photographs I used the camera mounted on a tripod with a remote and my camera settings involved using a low ISO with a slow shutter speed. I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.
On my return home, I downloaded all the photographs into Adobe Lightroom Classic CC. I developed a small selection of photographs. During the process of developing them I was able to see what I needed to address during my next photographic adventure. Please find both above and below, the best of what I took during this photography adventure.
Being out-and-about experiencing the natural wonders of the world really does rejuvenate the body and soul. Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative!
