“Photography:  Painting and Drawing with Light”






Our time at Port FairyGriffiths Island, Victoria – Australia was spent walking around Griffiths Island which is part of the Port Fairy Coastal Reserve. We experienced: picturesque beach scenes; sighted the Port Fairy Lighthouse and wide ocean views; natural vegetation where we spotted playful small wallabies; coastal water birds; and lots of fresh air!  This photography adventure was an add-on to our visit to Warrnambool during our attendance at the 64th Convention & Inter-Club Photographic Exhibition 2018.  We should have spent more time at this historic fishing port, but our need to get back home and rest up, after a long weekend away was needed!  Maybe one day we will be back…






During this seascape 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 of 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 to help 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 and this process also helps me establish what I need to address during my next photographic adventure.   Please find both above and below, the best of what I took on this day and for information on camera settings, just click on the individual image to find said.






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!

Happy photography all!
