INTRODUCTION

Prints are available for sale and all monies will go to Amber Community, a not-for-profit organisation.  So please pass this on to people interested in purchasing to support this great cause – thank you…

Please find here images of the – 42 Archival Limited Edition Fine Art Prints. You will find them at my ‘Photographic Portraits of Nature by ©Karen Robinson’ solo exhibition at the Broadmeadows Town Hall, Victoria – Australia.  It’s running from 28th November 2022 through to 5th February 2023 – 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday at 10 Dimboola Road Broadmeadows (closed for Xmas/New Year from 22nd December and reopening 3rd January 2023).

Ultimately the best option for viewing prints is to go and look at the exhibition in person. It’s the best way to see and appreciate the quality of the prints. Looking at prints online does not help to convey the true colours/pixel quality and the overall feeling of the print.

For Print Sales please be in direct contact with me – Karen Robinson via email at ido_karenrobinson@aapt.net.au – All monies raised from the sale of prints at this exhibition will be donated in full to Amber Community Organisation (formerly known as Road Trauma Support Services Victoria) for an ‘Expressive Arts Creative Writing Program’ for volunteers who have been impacted by road trauma.

In memory of my son Ben James Robinson who was killed in a single-vehicle car crash on the 5th of November 2009 at the age of 25 years old.

LAUNCH NIGHT Solo Exhibition

‘Photographic Portraits of Nature’ by ©Karen Robinson’

My solo exhibition launched last night (1st December 2022) titled Photographic Portraits of Nature which consists of 42 Archival Limited Fine Art Prints officially opened last night!  All our hard work and efforts resulted in a successful outcome and one that couldn’t have been achieved without the help and support of many people:  Hume City Council, Carmen Reid and her team, Northern Star Weekly Newspaper, Amber Community Organisation, my dear family, and those who were able to attend being friends, past work colleagues, neighbours and supporting Hume Council members. I also need to thank those who were unable to come to the night – a big thank you also for your ongoing support and encouragement along the way.

Below is the speech that I delivered at the Launch of  Photographic Portraits of Nature.

To all of you — sincerely thank you. 

 

  • Thank you, Carmen Reid – Hume Galleries Curator & Community Development Officer, Arts and Culture Hume City Council, Melbourne – Australia for the work that you have done on behalf of Hume City Council in opening this event tonight. And for the work you and your team did in putting together this solo exhibition for me.  A wonderful job and greatly appreciated by me and my family.  
  • I want to express my sincere gratitude to Hume City Councilfor giving me this incredible opportunity to showcase my photography work here at this grand Town Hall of Broadmeadows.
  • Thank you to Northern Star Weekly for featuring the story in their paper today -especially when it was expected to be in the paper sometime later.  It was very good of them to have brought forward the publication of the article.
  • Thank you to members of Amber Community Organisation – CEO Bernadette Nugent and Gillian Scaduto for coming across town to support the Robinson Family here tonight. And I can see other faces from the organisation as well thank you!
  • To my dear family, my husband Mark, daughter and our beautiful little granddaughter – thank you for your ongoing support, encouragement, and endless help – I am a fortunate woman to have you in my life.
  • But not to be forgotten – all of you who have kindly taken time out to attend here tonight – sincerely thank you and I hope you enjoy being here and viewing the photographic portraits of nature. Please consider purchasing prints either framed or unframed as all monies raised by their sale will be going directly to Amber Community(formerly known as Road Trauma Support Services Victoria). My family and I have been involved with this incredible organisation for over ten years now helping to raise awareness about road safety in the hope it will help prevent road trauma. All monies raised here from the sale of prints will be going towards an Expressive Arts Creative Writing Program at Amber Community for those who have been impacted by road trauma – in memory of our son, my daughter’s brother Ben.
  • Before I sign off here tonight – Just a little about the exhibition and myself. These portraits of nature shown here tonight have been a small selection chosen from a much larger collection of prints.  My hubby and I and along with my daughter and granddaughter over the years have been on many photography adventures within Victoria.  It has been a wonderful way for me to be creative, and nurture my relationships with my family and has helped to maintain a healthy sense of well-being. 
  • It’s been an incredible journey with photography and again I must say a big thank you to Hume City Council for the opportunity to share with you here tonight.  From the bottom of my heart … thank you one and all…Karen Robinson

Please Note: The exhibition will be running from now up until the 5th of February 2023. Opening hours of the Town Hall Broadmeadows are 9am to 5pm (but will be closed from 22nd December to 3rd January for Xmas & New Year). For Print sales – please contact me directly via email: ido_karenrobinson@aapt.net.au and I will respond ASAP. All monies raised from these sales will be donated by the Robinson Family in full to the Amber Community Organisation to help run an Expressive Arts Creative Writing Program for volunteers who have been impacted by road trauma in memory of Ben Robinson.

INTRODUCTION

While out-and-about with my hubby on our photography adventures, we encounter some of the best parts of the day, that being sunrise and sunset.  It is during these moments that we realise how fortunate we are to be able to see the beauty of the landscape. To feel the fresh air brush against our skin, wether it be freezing cold in winter or scorching hot in summer, it helps us appreciate our planet earth. There is a spiritual wonderment when gazing into the sky as the sun rises and sets, thus signalling the birth of a new day, and the closure of another; how this event is fleeting and full of beautiful colour, changing with every minute until the brightness of a new day shifts into play or darkness takes over for the night.  Here below are a series of photographs I have taken over the last year or so that capture those moments…

 

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this landscape 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 and also handheld when needed. 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 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!

 

 

 

 

CONCLUSION

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!

INTRODUCTION

With the Craigieburn Camera Club, hubby and I visited the region of Maldon, Victoria – Australia. I took the opportunity to photograph a number of trains and carriages located within the railway yard of the historic Maldon Railway Station set on the Victorian Goldfields of old! It originally opened on 16th June 1884 and closed to passenger services on 6th January 1941.  It is now opened for tourist services over a short 1km section of the line out of Maldon.  The weather on this day was unpredictable, one moment we had sunshine and the next we had rain, so a little challenging photography wise which limited our time spent photographing at this location.  But we did have a lovely lunch and coffee at one of the local Maldon cafes, and we also did a bit of sightseeing around the region’s best know tourist haunts.  Hubby and I had a lovely day, despite the weather conditions – always good to get out-and-about enjoying our photography adventures

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this landscape 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 all these photographs I used the camera mounted on a tripod.  I also used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.

Some of the photographs of the trains and carriages I felt would do better being developed as black and white images.  It also gave me a chance to experiment and be more creative.  Two of the photographs I left in colour and mainly because they looked better left as taken but also due to the fact they were both taken on my mobile phone and the quality wasn’t there to produce a fine black and white version.

 

 

 

THE PHOTOGRAPHS

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!

INTRODUCTION

On our way back home from Warrnambool May this year, we stopped off at Tower Hill Wildlife Reserve, Illowa, Victoria – Australia. A beautiful view from the roadside helped us to appreciate the 4km wide crater lake. The wildlife reserve sits inside the extinct volcano formed some 30,000 years ago and is considered a haven for wildlife as the tiny crater-bound ecosystem provides a natural habitat for many animals. While the day was overcast, the weather was kind and I was able to take a small selection of landscape photographs. Sadly we could only stay for a short time, but it is a location we hope to return to sometime in the near future.

NB:  Below is one of the many emus which can be seen while walking and driving through the wildlife reserve.  They are big and not too afraid of humans which can be a bit scary.  This particular emu must have thought we had food for it, but that big beak and those giant claw-like feet sure made us realise that there birds need to be respected and we kept our distance!

INTRODUCTION

One grey cold autumn day in May this year, hubby and I travelled to Mount Macedon, Victoria – Australia for another photography adventure.  This region is best known for its19th century gardens and associated collection of extravagant large homes.  On this day, we just concentrated on the Gardens Of Tieve Tara – a truly beautiful and picturesque garden consisting of 7.5 acres of lush grounds, sweeping lawns, a whimsical playground, lakes, geese and fountains (Tieve Tara 2018).  As a hobbyist photographer, these gardens during autumn provided me with an incredible variety of opportunities to capture the magic of autumn; there was so much beautiful vibrant colour and variations of textures to enjoy!  We had a lovely time walking about and photographing these gardens, and will definitely be back in years to come to visit other wonderful gardens within the region of Mount Macedon.

INTRODUCTION

While at the 64th Convention & Interclub Photographic Exhibition in May 2018, hubby and I took some timeout to visit a scenic area of the Hopkins River, Warrnambool, Victoria (Australia). The Hopkins River estuary is approximately 9 kilometres long and culturally significant. It marks the tribal border of the Kirrae Whurrong, Gunditjmara and Tiap Whurrong peoples; once a place for gatherings and trade. Now provides a premier fishing experience for both local and visiting anglers. On this day during the late afternoon, the weather was beautiful and a lovely way for hubby and I to chill-out together. I was particularly happy to be able to photograph a pair of Australian Pelicans that were drifting happily alongside of the jetty.

INTRODUCTION

Hubby and I stopped at Red Rock (Alvie, Victoria – Australia) during one of our photography adventures last month. It wasn’t planned, but thankfully we did take the opportunity to divert from our journey to Warrnambool. May rains had worked its magic and turned this summer dry landscape into lush green rolling pastures.  We experienced magnificent 360-degree views from atop of Red Rock which over looks Lake Corangamite and Lake Colac. Spectacular complex volcanic sites, formed by eruptions some 10’s of thousands of years ago with the last eruption 8000 years ago. These can be seen across the surrounding topography of volcanic plain and the 25,000-hectare Lake Corangamite. We spent some time here taking photographs and just enjoying the breathtaking views from every angle, on a glorious Autumn day.

 

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT USED

During this landscape 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 all these photographs 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.
