“Painting and Drawing with Light”

INTRODUCTION

The photography club I belong to asked its members to produce some images using the photographic technique of ‘Intentional Camera Movement‘ also known as ICM. In intentional camera movement, I am required to move the camera during its exposure in the hope of acquiring an image that appears creative or artistic in effect. It can take a bit of doing but is quite liberating as it frees you up to do something out of the norm for photography.

So this photography adventure took hubby and me to one of our coastal beaches in Melbourne, Victoria – Australia, the famous Brighton Beach.  On this part of the beach looking over Port Phillip Bay, famous colourful Bathing Boxes can be admired.  The sea was beautifully calm and the sky a pretty blue with dark clouds looming in the far distance.  I managed to create two ICM images – one of the Bathing Boxes and the other looking out over the ocean.  Fortunately, the beach wasn’t crowded and I was able to photograph this iconic location without having to dodge people on the beach or in the ocean.  A beautiful sunny day and a wonderful way to spent time at the seaside!

CONCLUSION

Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative. Being out-and-about experiencing the wonders of the world and the creatures it inhabits is a real privilege for sure. It really does rejuvenate the body and soul.

INTRODUCTION

It’s summertime now in Melbourne – Australia and time to capture some beautiful sunrise shots at Brighton Beach. We arrived at the beach early morning to find a couple of people undertaking their daily exercise routine and a number of keen photographers seeking to capture a beach sunrise.

Above Photography:  After taking the photograph below, I turned around and sighted this above beach view.  It was just beautiful and the warm early morning sunrise poured orange into the clouds above and across the wide-open sandy beach.  Way in the distance the Melbourne City skyline was in sight and looking out over Port Phillip Bay.  Not a person in sight except for the occasional seagull.

Below Photograph:  While thinking about my approach for the morning I sighted this scene below.  As the ‘blue hour’ started to drift into the sunrise, the street lights lit up the sandy beach and one of the Brighton Beach Bathing Boxes.  The view took in clouds hanging lowly in the sky with the Port Phillip Bay shoreline gently meeting the sandy beach. The lighting was gorgeous and something different for a beach photograph for me!
