“Man re-arranging hats…”



This wasn’t a planned photography adventure but a welcome change from my usual creative endeavours!  On my way to meeting up with a friend for lunch within the heart of Melbourne CBD, Victoria – Australia, I had a little bit of time on my hands before meeting up and I decided to take some street photography style shots.  I only had my iPhone with me on this day but it was for me a better choice of photography equipment.  Most people these days use mobile phones for photography and don’t become distracted by another in a crowd using one.  So it meant people just went about their daily business unconcerned about me taking photographs.  I found it very interesting and provided me with a new photography challenge trying to work out what worked and what didn’t…


“Mother and daughter making a big decision…”




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


“Man with a suitcase…”




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!


“Shadow city walkers…”


“Lunchtime in a big city…”




Being out-and-about doing Street Photography in a big city is challenging but very interesting and a wonderful way to be creative!

Happy photography all – © Karen Robinson – September 2019
