Happy New Year!

Hello everyone and Happy New Year!

It has been a quiet year in photography for me, but I made sure to capture some fireworks last night. The colours and sounds were spectacular. I hope you enjoy!

Light trails at the Gertrude Street Projection Festival

Hi all,

Recently when I visited the Gertrude Street Projection Festival I had a great time with my tripod doing some light trails with the traffic. Trams were my favourite as they provide an amazing trail given their size and the lighting inside.

VW Beetle – All lit up!

Hi all,

Last weekend I visited the Gertrude Street Projection Festival. It is an annual festival where they use light in different ways to create works of art. A lot of fun! In this post I have included some of my favourite photos from the VW Beetle art work. A projector was shining different patterns onto the car.

Docklands Fireworks

Hi everyone,

I hope your weekend is going well. Until the end of August, Docklands have free Friday night fireworks that go for about 10 minutes from 7pm. I went along last Friday to take some photos.

It was a first time for me taking photos of fireworks, but I think they turned out pretty well!


DSC05987 DSC05990 DSC05992All of these were taken with my Sony RX100 on a tripod. The manual settings were:

ISO: 125    Aperture: f10     Shutter: 5 sec

Definitely worth photographing fireworks, quite fun!

Cheers, Andrew

Melbourne Royal Exhibition Building At Night

Hi all,

Last week on our way back from the Gertrude Street Projection Festival, my creativity was sparked when I saw the lighting on the Royal Exhibition Building. I just had to set the tripod up again and get some shots.

I was particularly pleased with the fountain shot below. The backlight created a beautiful glow effect on the water spray coming off the fountain:


ISO: 1600 Aperture: f3.5 Shutter: 1/13

DSC05932ISO: 1600 Aperture: f4.0 Shutter: 1/15

I have to say night photography and lights are quickly becoming a favourite of mine. I hope you enjoyed 🙂

If you’d like to see more photos as I post them, please follow my blog!!

Cheers, Andrew
