Stormy Morning at Southbank, Brisbane

I had an early meeting in the city and managed to get to South Bank super early for a coffee and to take some photos. 

I headed down to the Brisbane River to get this shot looking back over towards the city. It was overcast with some light rain but the sun still poked through the clouds every now and then. I used an ND400 filter to get a long exposure to calm the water and smooth out the clouds.

While I was photographing the city there were many runners and walkers getting about. One guy in particular ran past and then ran back to compliment me on my "pro" camera and proceeded to ask if I could take his photo on his iPhone with the city as a backdrop, Sure ok, I accepted and he struck a pose.

Does this happen very often to other photographers out there?

Hunt and Shoot

Todays hunt and shoot was great fun; a little slow to start with, only taking two images in the first hour, but I managed to finish on time.  These are the full set in order, not happy with the third image but I only had one chance.

The idea of the hunt and shoot is to follow a list of prompts to capture an images that suits each one.  This particular event we were only allowed to take one shot per subject and each file number had to be consecutive meaning that we could not delete or take another if the image didn't turn out.

Caboolture Swap Meet

Headed out nice and early to the Caboolture Swap Meet, it was an interesting morning with a lot of things to look at and a lot of interesting sights and people.  I'm not very comfortable yet with street photography but I quite enjoyed getting the camera out this morning.

3/52 A Horse

I spent an hour at a friend’s house photographing her horses during the week, I think this image was one of my favourites from the shoot.  The light wasn’t great as it was getting late in the evening and some of the action shots aren’t as sharp as I would have liked but I think I managed to get some good shots.
