“Photography:  Painting and Drawing with Light”





Another photography adventure day with the Craigieburn Camera Club!  Hubby and I with other club members went about fulfilling the required photography task which was to find a composition to photograph that was inclusive of the following: music, reflections, people, angles and movement.  Federation Square, Melbourne – Australia was the Club’s choice of locations. Due to the fact it was a weekend and lots of community events where underway while we were there – it wasn’t hard to find things to photograph, but being creative demanded extra attention from us as photographers.  It was also hot which made it even more challenging!  But our afternoon finished up with us all joining up together to have dinner at one of Federation Square’s Cafes.  Here we got to cool down with a much-needed cold drink, exchange stories about our experiences during the afternoon and just enjoy each others company.  It was a great way to end the day…





During this 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. I handheld the camera or mounted it on a Wimberley WH-200 Gimbal Tripod Head II with quick release base. 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 then 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 world through the lens of my camera with my hubby and this time with other club members was an enjoyable undertaking! Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative!

    • Hi Claudia, I must admit I didn’t enjoy all the crowds, so you are right, looking through the lens for simplicity and clarity helped me enjoy the process overall. Some thirty years ago, Melbourne City was nothing like it is now – and now so busy and our population growth has exploded! Thank you for commenting and taking a look at the photographs Claudia…warm regards Karen

      • I know how you feel, I am very uncomfortable in crowds and I find that the camera (I take a lot of photos for references for art, and also, I like taking photos for their own sake, too) can help me step back out of things and absorb them at my own pace. It is interesting, if you have lived in a place a long time, how the changes creep up on you until you step back and remind yourself how things used to be.
