“Photography:  Painting and Drawing with Light”

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION

During a photography adventure back in November 2019, we spent some time within the Grampians National Park region, Victoria – Australia.  The weather was mostly overcast and dull but I persevered in trying to make the best of our time by concentrating on photographing misty, moody scenes.  It’s a beautiful Australia bush region, rugged mountain ranges feature strongly but challenging to photograph at times.  Some walking involved and can be across difficult terrain especially for a couple of oldies like my hubby and me! So much to see and we will need to return at another time perhaps when the weather is sunny and warm…

 

 

 

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!

INTRODUCTION

The aim of this travel and photography adventure, which my husband and I did on two separate occasions, was to capture the essence of the rugged natural beauty of Werribee Gorge. It is situated within the Werribee Gorge State Park, Victoria – Australia and displays 500 million years of geological history! The wild and rugged landscape of 575 hectare park protects native flora and fauna, offers spectacular views, and has great opportunities for bushwalking and rock climbing” (Parks Victoria 2017).  Our first occasion visiting this region involved embarking on a long walk through open woodlands with rocks covered in Lichen, and walking through the picturesque Ironbark Gorge showing off panoramic views of the gorge and beyond (Parks Victoria 2017). The second occasion worked out to be perfect day for a long bush walk, sunny with cool temperatures throughout the day.  We decided to take the river walk this time which provided excellent views along the gorge rim, steep in some places of the track but we managed to walk most of the track, up until the path ran out.

 

 

 

 

 

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 Lense. For some of the shots, I used the camera hand-held, and for others, I used the camera mounted on a tripod with a remote timer.  Each photography adventure helps me learn more and more about my camera and lense; and hopefully helps me becoming a better photographer. I also used my Samsung Galaxy S6 mobile phone for quick spontaneous photographs and gain GPS location readings.
