“Photography:  Painting and Drawing with Light”

 

 

INTRODUCTION

Another photograph pulled out of my 2018 Lightroom Catalogue archive!  An image that captured a dark and stormy day at the beautiful coastal ocean beach of Kilcunda, Victoria – Australia.  Far in the distance, you can spot two beach walkers with their dogs enjoying the isolation of this vast sandy beach scene.  The unusual lighting comes from the sun on the left of the image that had momentarily broken through the clouds, thus illuminating the sand and surf within the centre of the image.

I had developed this photograph previously, back in Feb 2018 but upon reviewing it just recently, I felt it I hadn’t done a good job.  Now, with a lot more experience as a photographer behind me, developing images within Lightroom Classic I decided it was worth giving it another go!  To my surprise and pleasure, I was able to improve the quality and mood of the image overall. and now feel it tells the story of the moment captured much better…

INTRODUCTION

Out of my Lightroom Catalogue archives once again! One day I will get back to photographing this beautiful part of Victoria, Australia, around the Lake Eildon region. This photograph was taken from the lakeside, near Bonnie Doon as the sun rose, on a cold July morning back in 2019. It was such a beautiful morning with not a soul to be seen or heard. The lake itself was relatively still, but it was the peculiar cloud formation that became the star of this image! 

Camera Settings:

  • Exposure 1/90 sec at f/13
  • Focal Length 34mm
  • ISO 100
  • Camera Make Sony
  • Model ILCE-7M2
  • Lens FE 24-240mm F3.5-6.3OSS

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this photography adventure – 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. Recently I had purchased a Right Angle L Plate Bracket for my camera so that I could turn it to do portraits or landscape photographs more easily which worked a treat.  I also purchased a BH-40 Ballhead for my tripod and once more, it made taking my photographs not just easier but much more enjoyable. I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.

THE PHOTOGRAPHS

On my return home, I downloaded all the photographs into Adobe Lightroom Classic.  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 here above and below, the best of what I took during this photography adventure!

 

CONCLUSION

Being out-and-about experiencing the natural wonders of the world and the creatures it inhabits – 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!
