1. Was outside in beautiful Autumn sunlight shooting a few clips for a video project when I saw this beautiful scene.

    Thanks Patricia! 

     
  9. This lamp, named ‘The Paperclip’, was designed by an RMIT student, Rebecca Crooke.
    Here are some studio shots I took of it. 

     
  10. first trial of night photography.

    I took this just before the new year. I was staying with some very close family friends on the Murray River, which divides Victoria and New South Wales, and also reaches into a third state: South Australia.
    It was a peaceful, clear night, and I was excited to have only a very little moon, that hadn’t yet risen, so ensure it was dark enough to capture the stars.
    The brightest ‘star’, reflected in the water, is actually a planet. 

    Hopefully I will master the technique eventually. 

     
  11. Went to Rye, in the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. It was a nice weekend, and the weather was pretty kind (a bit chilly at night).
    I stayed with Steve’s family, right on the beach in their caravan. A short walk away was a lookout, which we walked to at the end of the day for golden hour. Its a pretty peaceful place.

  12. This series, called CANVAS, is something I really enjoyed doing.
    The final series uses tight crops of the face to draw in the viewer to observe textures and colours as well as the shape and form of the face.

    The series itself uses unique and out of place substances and items on the human face to challenge the ideas of changing ones appearance for the sake of beauty, expression and individuality. The term ‘the face is a canvas’ has inspired this collection of images.

    I aim to expand on this series over time.

  13. I ignore this blog quite a lot.
    I’m going to try and make more of an effort to make this more ‘blog-like’,  with more extensive captions and stories behind my images. Perhaps some inspiration, behind the scenes, and sketches. 

     
  14. I was experimenting the other day with a 27.5mm extension tube with my 50mm lens. The extension tube creates a longer distance between the lens and the sensor, allowing the camera to get closer to the subjects (effectively creating a macro lens).
    I am going to experiment with this a little more today (and with a tripod too). Its beautiful and sunny outside in Victoria today, so I’m going to go exploring now, will post some more later.

  15. Trip to Cairns, November 2013

    I travelled to Queensland, Australia in the middle of November with my boyfriend Steve. After cold weeks in Melbourne, the warm weather was welcomed, despite the clouds and a few storms. It was lovely.

    We spend four nights on the Gold Coast, QLD, where we spent most of our time re-living our childhood going to theme parks. We swam with the Dolphins (Steve’s birthday present to me), which was an amazing experience to see the loving creatures up close, and observe (underwater) the tricks they do in their daily shows.

    These photos are all from the Great Barrier Reef off Cairns. They are taken from two separate days. One day we went to Green Island, sailing with a small tour group on a yacht. 
    The second trip was on a much bigger boat, and we spent around four hours snorkelling in the water, seeing so much beauty.
