I couldn’t help but watch the people lining the shore and the jetty, and notice all the individual memories being written as so many people gathered in a common place to leisurely live their lives. Everyone coming together to enjoy the water and the sun, but each group’s experience independent from the rest. People together, but apart, and soon to go separate ways and never to know if anyone happens upon the same place as any of those beach-goers again.Read More
It’s all a part of life’s flux, the growing pains,
the stiffening ache – perhaps just the body’s lullaby.
Stop trying to move while curled and cocooned
Just rest before becoming a butterfly.
I know these aren’t all photos of forests, ferns or leaves but those are all shades of green and these photos are all indeed green. These photos were taken in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, and I find myself always finding new things to photograph there despite it being one of my main places to go…Read More
This is a spot I have visited several times to take photos, but I have never seen it this green! It honestly feels like a secret fantasy world, even more so when it’s overrun with greenery, and only enhanced further by the fact that it kind of is a bit of a secret, off the beaten track sort of place. I think it’s beautiful how untouched it is.Read More
A gallery of recent film photos I took at sunset at Henley beach, plus some thoughts on the creative process behind them.
Whenever I take my camera to the beach I always feel the need to hold back from taking an entire roll of the same photo, but it seems that even if I feel like I’m doing that, I never actually am.Read More
I find myself often revisiting places to take photos. I used to be hesitant in doing this because.. if I’ve already been there taking photos, there can’t be any photos left to take, right? But I actually have found that this is a great exercise for improving my photography, since I’m driven to look past…Read More
This is a series of film photographs of ragged and unruly nature landscapes as inspired by the photographer: Dave Rothschild. I have been intrigued by his work for quite some time now and decided when I finally loaded a black and white roll of film into my camera, to give it a go!Read More
Recently in the last few weeks while taking photos, I’ve been experimenting with editing them in black and white, or greyscale, which is something a bit different for me. I usually keep my nature photos in colour, because black and white can make some parts of a busy nature scene slightly indistinguishable, but I think…Read More
I recently went to the beach armed with my camera and tripod to try and capture the ocean in a different way, and here is a gallery of a couple of my favourite pictures! I took them using a long exposure so it really captured a beautiful movement and I love how the waves look like clouds. I’ll definitely be doing this again.Read More
This is a photo series of sorts, but I’m more going to simply call it a project. It’s an experiment, really, exploring a different style of photography that is slightly out of my comfort zone, creating self portraits of myself that are, as the name suggests, ‘not always whole’.Read More
