Week 30/52 “Dump” – Selections

Yikes! I did it again. Fallen behind. Combination of shitty weather outside and just not prioritizing the blog or my instagram.

Happy to say I still shoot during my lunchtimes when the rain permits. Anyways, Word for week 30 (two weeks late) was “dump”. Wish I was able to play or explore the theme more but alas. B sides below!

Week 31 will be posted tomorrow to try and catch up.

Week 20/52 “Bus” – Selections

Wow another week done. The year is going light speed. It’s almost June. The sun sets here in Perth around 5pm which severely limits shooting time. I chose the image above because I like the layering of the foreground and background element by the three bald men. Plus the stories a viewer could make between the three characters in the frame.

As you can imagine I shot alot around bus stops and took the bus quite abit this week for the brief. (I wasn’t very creative with the whole theme)

I’ve definitely gotten more interesting characters I have taken a photo of in the past but you can only take what the universe dishes out to you in the realms of street photography.

Week 09/52 “Soft” – Selection

Top pick for my 09/52 last week for the theme soft. I really like the driver and passenger’s annoyed/angry expression in contrast to the soft afternoon light. Other explorations and images below. Amazing what “soft” light can do to an image. It gets addictive shooting in soft light. I am going to miss it once winter comes and the days get shorter.

Week 08/52 “Moving” – Selection

A number of different type of images resulted from shooting this week. From my usual geometric to something abit more lyrical. The shot of this week is one that started to grow on me. The combination of elements seems to just work. Interestingly enough most of the shots were taken from the pedestrian bridge where I shot my film project a couple of weeks back. Still amazed how many sort of images can be made in a 30m length location when one looks.

I feel three of the images this week (i seem to always do) are pretty much interchangeable for the top spot.

The project has highlighted some key areas to shoot. I’ve been shooting the pigeons quite abit and have started to come up with a series.

Played with panning aswell. Abit cliche I know but I just couldn’t help it.

Week 08 – Moving

Theme for this week’s project 52 is moving.  Bring on slow shutter speeds and low ISO. I’ll be using the A6000 again as my Ricoh has been shipped to Melbourne for repairs. Didn’t realise how much slower and awkward it is compared to the Ricoh. I am highly considering an X100t when the prices start dropping.… Continue reading Week 08 – Moving
