“Photography:  Painting and Drawing with Light”


“Stairwell: The Lost Ones Contemporary Art Gallery Ballarat “



This photography adventure was not going to be about taking photographs, so I thought beforehand, it was going to be about visiting and exploring the Ballarat International Foto Biennale.  A short drive to Ballarat, Victoria – Australia with hubby lead to walking from one location to another viewing many artists photography works.  During this outing, it required us to walk up many flights of stairs, all historical and interesting.  I was inspired to take a set of photographs of them as the lighting within these stairwells was just so beautiful. In taking these photographs I found the light and shade helping to create forms of abstraction. Once again – it was with my iPhone but so enjoyable and easy – an on the go creative endeavour…


“Stairwell: Ballarat Town Hall”




During this photography adventure – I only used my Apple iPhone 8 Plus mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.


“Stairwell: Ballarat Regent Cinemas”




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 above only, the best of what I took during this photography adventure!
