While I was busy capturing light, I noticed that there were some really good clouds in the sky.
Sydney doesn’t do fluffy white clouds too often, so I really clicked away.
And there was more of the same the following day!
I was happy.
To get us all thinking about photography, the first week concentrated on light and how to capture it. When you think about it, photography is just about capturing light as it reflects off various subjects. It’s how we capture that light that makes things interesting, and in an age where everyone seems so snap-happy, making ‘interesting’ images getting more difficult to do. Well, I guess we can only try.
As an exercise, we went a few doors down to the Paddington Reservoir to look around, and eventually snap a few photos. Last year I had a go at a few shots there myself, but this time around the light conditions were very different. It was midday and very bright. That made for some interesting shadows.
But what I liked the most was how the bright light reflected off surfaces, like water.
Well, that was a really long blog break! It’s three weeks into 2015 and I hope you have been enjoying these very warm days. We’ve been on the Central Coast post-Christmas, but frankly I haven’t taken out my camera a whole lot. The only photos I have for you are these from a brief visit to the village of Patonga.
The Hawkesbury was a good place to be if you were a fisherman as there was a really warm current for a week or so after New Year’s Day.
Although Umina Beach was packed, there weren’t too many people swimming here. Probably a good thing since we heard through the grapevine that someone caught a bull shark just off the wharf!
I’ll be starting a photography course next week, so there will hopefully be more photos to post in the near future.
