Melbourne is being hit with dark clouds. many want the sunny days, but mother nature has dark clouds not going anywhere. To nature lover and many photographer’s, cloudy days are not bad for photography. Seascapes turn out to be good.
In Melbourne, i love taking photos at the time when the city is deserted. its fun as you will see a few photographers getting real creative before they snap it. Its been a while and now that the lockdown is lifted i will spare the time and kill it snapping some photos at night. some of my before lockdown photos i took.
I like to keep it short but hope you give it a go. My favorite shooting mode is the bulb, taking long exposures. This was my first long exposure photo I took. Thanks to the DSLR camera’s today they come with all this high-end tech. if you have not tried it and own a DSLR. Please give it a try.
There are so many free online tutorials about long exposure shooting specifically for the DSLR you own. as i said if you have not tried it, its fun and you will like your photo.
I went way to early to see the sunrise at St Kilda beach, it did not happen. the clouds where to heavy blocking the sun. am happy i got to see the daybreak powering through the darkness. it was awesome. Sunrise there is always another day. Experience.
Many after the sunsets chillout along the Yara river to experience the view. Its an attraction to many photographers among myself. Day or night its a perfect location to play with your camera.
It was the day before the lockdown and the spot i wanted to be was in St Kilda beach watching the sunset. it was like walking yourself in a jail when the sun will rise. what a lesson from Covid 19. these photos will always remind me of the tough lockdowns in Melbourne.
We can only pray to you all and you are not alone. we know the pain, hardship that Covid 19 has brought up us on this planet earth. many have fallen and still are. we in Australia see what is happening around the world. my prayers to you in America, India, Europe, South America, Asia and Africa fighting this invincible human enemy. Our prayers with you all that you see the light at the end of the tunnel. Rest in Peace the fallen.
