“Photography:  Painting and Drawing with Light”






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.






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.






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!






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 – © Karen Robinson – May 2018
