I wasn’t 100% happy with my photo from the other day so I decided to make another trip out to the Japanese Gardens and try a different shot. Much happier with this result.
Today was very warm and humid, so I knew as soon as it started to cool down we would get some good clouds forming. Luckily my hunch paid off so I took a trip out to the Toowoomba Japanese Gardens to capture the sunset. Here’s the result.
Jazz is a co-worker of mine and she had never had professional portrait photos done before. She wanted a few shots done to give to her mother so we set up a shoot and took it from there. I’m only going to share 3 shots from this session.
Sometimes a short drive out of town is just what the doctor ordered so you can clear your head and just relax. I decided to make a beeline for this little relatively unused rail station that I had come across a few weeks earlier. I thought it could make a good scene for a sunset shot. What do you think?
I was approached by a fellow friend photographer to be involved in an art-nude shoot recently as well as another photographer. As anyone who follows my work will know most of my photography is based around landscape work and portrait/studio sessions. This was something new to me and I jumped at the challenge to try something different and see if my skills in other areas could translate well to this area. I’m fairly pleased with my results but others should probably be the judge of that. We also shot a few gothic-inspired photos in an old rundown shed we came across and I’ll lead with those photos. Any nudity in this is implied and not actually shown but I still think it should be labelled not safe for work.
In a bid to get out there and push myself to do something interesting and different from my normal style of photography I’ve decided to start a personal project that I’ve named cool people, cool walls. I have been contemplating doing something like this for a while now but I decided to set it in to action the other day when I came across an interesting wall in the city.
Here’s a couple of photos from my first shoot that was organised on very short notice. Thank you to Rachel, Jemma and Terence for agreeing to come along and be models for the afternoon and Angela Hocking | Photographer for tagging along to join in the fun.
I am looking for people in Toowoomba or SE Queensland who would be interested in participating in this project so if you come across this post then feel free to give me a shout through the About page or through Facebook
More photos after the break.
I’ve been out of it the past couple of days with the flu. In hindsight I would’ve got a flu shot but oh well. This was my first time out of the house in a few days. Just a quick run up to Picnic Point to grab a quick photo and clear my head a bit. I liked the way the dusk light was just illuminating the top of the Range slightly while leaving the rear in shadow. Took the shot as a long exposure to get the light trails from the cars going up and down the range.
