Photos #113-132

exposure: 1/250sec f/stop: 3.5 iso: 125

I took this shot while I was waiting for the bus outside my house. I just thought it was an interesting shot with all the ants on the apple.

exposure: 1/500sec f/stop: 1.7 iso: 100

I had my 50mm with me today and I thought I would take some photos of plants in my garden.Though its not a macro lens, I like the detail that it captured when I opened up the photo on my computer and I like the smooth bokeh (out of focus blur) in the background.

exposure: 0.6sec f/stop: 2.8 iso: 400

I was at the Vivid festival in Sydney this night and for something a bit different from attending the other days. It had a light show about the first settlement in Australia. It was a great show which was made even better with the good use of the lights on the ships, the people that were acting in the story and a lot of props that were used. I also had a good view of the whole event which made it even better.

exposure: 1/30sec f/stop: 3.5 iso: 320

The photo I took is of my Tamron lens whilst I was cleaning it. I like the shape and different colored lights coming out of it.

exposure: 1/2500 f/stop: 1.7 iso: 100

I was out in the city again. I love my city by the way. Theres always something interesting to take a photo of and this night was no exception. There were barrels of fire around circular quay and I must say I did hang around them for quite a long time because they were so warm. So I took quite a few shots of fire this night but I like this shot in particular cause of the shape that took place.

I was at Bondi Junction tonight at Max Brennars with my sister. She treated me to some waffles and as always they tasted great. Thanks sister.

 This was at my little studio at my house and today we had a little photo shoot with Michelle who was the model for our friend Cathy who was putting a makeup portfolio together. It was a small shoot but a very successful one. Good work everyone!

It may not look big here but this pool is huge! There were so many cars waiting for it to move but the truck was moving so slowly and for obvious reasons but congrats to the owners of a new pool. I hope that pool is heated.

exposure: 1/15sec f/stop: 2.8 iso: 800

I was at world square in the city and there were three people busking performing cover songs and I must say, they are amazing! The way they performed and sang the songs were great. I ended up staying there for about 40mins listening to their performance. 

exposure: 20sec f/stop: 9 iso: 100

After I finished working on the time lapse of the opera house I took photos of circular quay and the surrounding area. It was a really cold night but it was great to go out and take some photos.

During the days I attended Vivid Sydney, I always saw the spotlight buildings in the distance but finally I actually walked over and checked them out for myself. This was the last night of Vivid Sydney and although it wasn't as good as last year, at least it was different.

exposure: 1/160sec f/stop: 11 iso: 200

I love using the red gel on my flash. Its the gel that stands out the most. This is a shot of my hallway and I tried to give it a sort of eerie look to it. I should probably put more effort into it next time =P

This photo was from an exhibition called Supanova which was held at Sydney Olympic Park at the Dome. For those that don't know what Supanova is, it is a convention where people can dress up as their favorite characters from games, movies, shows and comics and socialize and partake in the activities. It was my first time there along with Marione and I thank her for bringing me along cause it was a great experience to actually check out the effort that these people put into their costumes. Also had the chance to see Eliza Dushku (from Buffy & Bring it On), Charisma Carpenter (Buffy), Todd Winslow (Police Academy) who is a really funny guy, Summer Glau (Terminator series), the original Hulk and some other people that I forgot. Overall, great first time experience attending this event.

exposure: 5sec f/stop: 29 iso: 100

Even though I took the ferris wheel photo at the Easter Show, I always wanted to take a photo of the ferris wheel which is in front of the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Center which is also next to Tumbalong Park. I like the star shape it made with this exposure and it was easy to take this photo compared to the Easter show because there weren't as many people walking around.

exposure: 1/100sec f/stop: 7.1 iso: 100

Took this photo in the studio with the off camera flash (love this system). I'm not too keen on self portraits at the moment because I want to see if I can make that my next challenge for the 365 day photo project and of course a lot more thought would have to go into it but if I do it, that would be a great accomplishment for myself.

exposure: 1/320sec f/stop: 11 iso: 100

I was location scouting today for possible new places to shoot at and I really love this place. It has a lot of open space, near the water and close to public transport. I also had the chance to take my filters out today and try them out and I must say it makes a big difference. Also love this shot because of the reflections too.

exposure: 1/320sec f/stop: 11 iso: 100

 The photo was taken in my relatives garden. They have these brush like plants (I have no idea what its called) that looked great with the setting sun. So I took a photo and edited it a bit decreasing the hue just a bit in photoshop and this is the final image.

exposure: 1/60sec f/stop: 3.2 iso: 100

I was at home today and used these crutches to help me move around the house. I injured my foot somehow and it forced me to not go to the event I was supposed to shoot at. It was disappointing because this happened before but what can you do. So I was in front of my computer for pretty much the whole day and I was playing around with my camera and flash and took this photo.

 exposure: 1/60sec f/stop: 3.2 iso: 100

I'm stuck at home again and I long to go out but its such a struggle when you have a really sore foot. There was an event that I wanted to shoot at this morning but because of the previous reason I couldn't. Theres nothing worse than a missed opportunity.
