This image was shot in Altona. I was trying to get a sunset shot from a location which allowed good access to a creek. This I think I achieved. It depicts a train travelling from left to right towards Melbourne and while its a bright point within the image I actually think it helps to move the viewer through the image itself. I used both a Polarising filter and a magenta filter which allowed for a better quality of light. Its is an image that I am happy with overall.
Is it a natural triptych ? I don't know, it does remind me of one though. This is a study of light and shadow. It is, as is usual for me, very dark, but still something which works well with in the space(s). Interestingly the reflection becomes somewhat surreal as it does not seem to match the positive image. All in all I am happy with this shot.
8 second daylight exposure of a stream in the Dandynong Ranges State Forest. Let me just say that the Dandynong ranges is perhaps the most annoying place I have ever been to take photographs. Signage is crap, I spent 2 hours driving around it circles (and getting car sick at the same time) before I finally managed to get where I wanted to go. "Sherbrook Falls". I don't know who decided on the name, but dude, a 2 foot drop and a trickle of water over a single rock does not represent a "Water Fall". It got to the stage that I wanted to punch some poor bastard in the face I was that annoyed. Not really the best state of mind in which to take photographs... at least not my style of photographs. This is one of the few exceptions of the trip.
The first of a series of light experiments over time. The idea here was to capture a ferris wheel over a two hour period highlighting how light might change the image from the obvious to the abstract. There a 1 and a half second exposure was enough to capture the spinning of the wheel while leaving the clouds realitively still. A ND Grad 8 filter was used to help with light.
Perhaps the easiest to recognise as a ferris wheel of the four images, this the most complex in terms of lighting. Shot as the ferris wheel was slowing down, there was enough light to create movement from the structure while leaving the carriages almost still, creating a rather interesting image.
This is the third of a series looking at light on a single object over time. Titled "Light Show" it highlights both abstractness and surrealism. The line like colour hides its true image giving it a sense of blacklighting and sets this image apart from the others giving it its own distinctive spin on form and colour.
This is the fourth of a series looking at light on a single object over time. Titled "Tron" for its likeness to the film it highlights both abstractness and intertextuality. The solid blue sets this image apart from the others giving it its own distinctive spin on form and colour.
This is a image I really like. I used a filter to enhance the colour and it ended up giving a rather spectacular sunset view. The other thing I like about this image is the fact that I managed to have a good depth of light within the the silhouette of the building and the figures walking.
An interesting image. It is phallic in its nature, but the really interesting thing for me is the way the wooden sculpture plays off the colour of the background. I also like the idea of the smaller polls in the background which both break up the solid background colour and give some level of depth to the photograph.
