“Photography:  Painting and Drawing with Light”

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION

On this day, one beautiful spring morning, I decided to visit the region of Wallan, Victoria – Australia.  During the year, my hubby and I regularly drive past these fields on our way to visit our daughter and her family.  During September magnificent Canola fields of bright yellow stretch out across the landscape as far as the eye can see.  I have always wanted to see if I could photograph them while they looked their best!  The morning light was beautiful and we were able to drive to a location where mountains could be included in the composition along with a scattering of clouds set against pretty blue skies.  A mini photography adventure

 

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 CC.  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!

 

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

Spending time with my daughter taking photographs of our local Wallan region – is such a joy.  She enjoys taking photographs of birds and other forms of wildlife, while I enjoy taking photographs of the landscape.  On this particular day on our way home from our latest photography adventure, my daughter spotted a tree laden with Crested Pigeons.  It was late afternoon on a very cool winter’s day, and the sun was on the left hand side of us.  The lighting was perfect, soft and mystical as it sweep across the open fields; with the clouds gently laying down shadows, thus adding more interest to the scene.  It truly looked like a painting, just so beautiful.  As we got out of the car to take our photographs, the Crested Pigeons took flight.  I was able to capture this shot (featured above) where their bodies were bathed in sunlight which helped highlight their escape!  For me, this is a magical photo, and one that will remind me of my time with my daughter doing what we both love to do…

 

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 about my camera and lense; and also 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.  NB:  The rest of the photographs I took on the this day will be featured in a blog to follow soon.

 

CONCLUSION

Being out and about experiencing the natural wonders of the world really does rejuvenate the body and soul.  Photography is just another way I can improve my sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative!  It definitely works for me and once more we finished up our day in high spirits.  NB:  Please click here to visit my ‘Photography – About’ page where you will be able to find blog links and photographs about other photographic adventures…

Happy photography all!
