Yesterday night I took part in a group lesson for beginner photographers where we walked around the city exploring different settings of our cameras. The focus was on learning about movement and other things involved with long exposure. Here are some of the results.
The city of Melbourne has so many faces. The narrow, graffiti painted streets is something you’d normally avoid, but for photography class it was perfect.
I learned that in photography the creative part of making a picture is about balancing the essential: shutter speed, aperture and the ISO. Just these three settings give so many options for creative expression and presentation of ideas.
I hope to share more night photos soon during my trip to the 12 apostles end of January. Apparently, as told by our instructor, in astro photography a 4 hour photograph can capture star light movements! Looking forward to try this out.
