Under the Bridge

Published February 13th, 2012

Finally got to walk around with my camera around my suburb. I have been really interested in a bridge near by and have been wanting to capture it. I was even thinking of using it for my final dissertation this year. There wasn't much activity though. Planning to go back and camp out and try to get it during sunrise!

Hitting the books

The final hoorah

Published February 7th, 2012

Final year of uni will be starting in 2 weeks, which means books, cutting board, models, insane amounts of caffeine and of course design. I am not really ready to go back yet either! Really enjoyed the holidays especially with the addition of a DSLR :) This dread gave my friend and I an idea of trying to document our final year through our new found hobby and love of photography (he also just got a dlsr). Hopefully we stick through it, and get some interesting results. I guess the challenge would be carrying a dslr around school lol

Departing Sydney - attempt on street photography

Published February 5th, 2012

Finally got to try my nifty fifty out in Sydney before i head back to perth :) Took a whole lot of shots but ended up with two I which I am more than pleased with. The fish markets in sydney is a great place especially during lunch time. Plenty of people, tourists so you dont stick out amongst the crowd (unless you wear a fluro outfit)

Street is something I definitely want to explore. There's just something about capturing an expression or composing a shot on the fly, waiting for that moment to just happen.
