Photos #217-244

 exposure: 1/125sec f/stop: 5.6 iso: 100

I did this in the studio and it was a fun and messy shoot. Using my macro lens, I love how the liquid is so sharp. This is pre-focused and I'm using red cordial for this.

 exposure: 1/500sec f/stop:25 iso: 100

I used one of old speakers for this shot. This was also a messy shot with the corn starch that I used was going everywhere. I tried different types of music to get the corn starch to pretty much dance but the best song that made it go off was the drum song by the temper trap.

The Sydney International Food Festival was at Hyde Park. I found this stall quite amusing because of what they're called.

 exposure: 1/3sec f/stop: 2.8 iso: 100

There's an annual photo contest in Hyde Park showcasing works of upcoming photographers and the one of the Harbour Bridge during the dust storm was my favorite out of the bunch.

 exposure: 1/250sec f/stop: 3.2 iso: 100

I was location scouting at Newtown looking for graffiti walls that would be suitable for an upcoming shoot for a competition I was going to enter. I didn't end up using this wall but I thought it looked pretty cool.

'Life is fleeting' It sure is television. So make the most of the time you have.

 exposure: 1/8sec f/stop: 5.6 iso: 800

Adiano Zumbo has one of the best tasting macarons and this raspberry fruit tart with pistachio is just as good. If this cafe was closer to me, I would go here a lot.

The Harbour Bridge is one of the most photographed structures in Australia. Tonight is different though, because the City of Sydney is honoring Mary Mackillop on the pillars of the bridge as she becomes the first Australian saint.

I was working for Verandah Bar this night and I have to say it was awesome. Riding around in a hummerzine taking photos of the passengers that we were picking up and dropping off at the club. 

 exposure: 1/15sec f/stop: 11 iso: 100

I did a similar photo like this in my previous post but I didn't like it as much as I like this one. 

  exposure: 1/640sec f/stop: 2.8 iso: 400

Just a simple shot of some flowers that were in my garden. I like the bokeh and color of the background.

  exposure: 1/125sec f/stop: 2.8 iso: 100

One word. Shiny.

  exposure: 1/4000sec f/stop: 2.8 iso: 100

David LaChappelle was at Circular Quay on this day. If you don't know who he is, he's an American photographer who does a lot of fashion and fine art photography with a very unique style. He's promoting the Nokia N8 mobile by using it as his main camera. This is just one of the three setups he had during the shoot but I have to say his lighting and ideas are a major inspiration. 

  exposure: 1/30sec f/stop: 2.8 iso: 100 

I love these places in the city with random artworks. Nothing beats the bird cages at Angel Place which was my first photo of the 319 project. 

 exposure: 1/13sec f/stop: 2.8 iso: 400  

A mango sundae at Mizuya on George St. They have pretty good lunch deals at this place and they're food is delicious!

  exposure: 1/400sec f/stop: 11 iso: 100 

These burgers are so nice! I was at Bondi Beach with Marione just for these burgers. They taste great, they're healthy, its a decent size (bigger than Macdonalds burgers) and for that day only it was free! 

  exposure: 1/25sec f/stop: 2.8 iso: 200

I don't remember what shop this was but I simply thought the boxes looked cool.

  exposure: 1/4000sec f/stop: 2.8 iso: 200

This was a random site for me as I walked around the city. A woman with a pug carrying it like a baby with a shirt on. 

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

Starbucks. A nice chill out spot where I drink coffee, read, talk and sometimes do nothing.

  exposure: 1/80sec f/stop: 2.8 iso: 800

If you don't know who this is, its Cameron from Modern Family. Its a weird shot of him when you look closely at his facial expression. He's just having lunch with his girlfriend at QVB and I'm on the level above taking this stalker photo.

 exposure: 1/500sec f/stop: 4 iso: 100 

Sculptures at the beach is an annual event where various artists showcase they're sculptures. I especially liked  this one because it just stood out from the rest to me. I don't really have anything artistic to say about it other than I like the expression on his face.

  exposure: 1/320sec f/stop: 4.5 iso: 100

I remember taking a photo of something similar to this sculpture last year but nonetheless I like the shadows on the door.

  exposure: 1/125sec f/stop: 2.8 iso: 200

Martin Place. A place where a lot of people in suits work, in their cubicles in tall buildings. I can't wait to do a shoot with office workers.

  exposure: 1/60sec f/stop: 6.3 iso: 100

A photo of a reunion of people from Catherine Mcauley. I think the class was 1997 but out of I think around 300 students, only 30 came. This was such a hassle to cover for this event as it was in Prospect and I had to drive all the way to the city to print out the photos in the lab and drive back to Prospect to sell them. 

  exposure: 1.3sec f/stop: 13 iso: 100

I love motion blur shots. I know its dangerous but I sometimes take a few shots of things whilst I'm driving.

 exposure: 1/20sec f/stop: 2.8 iso: 1600

Congratulations to the happy couple taking their first dance as husband and wife. It was a pleasure shooting for them and it was Marione's first all day wedding shoot so congrats to her too. Proud of you.

I was trying out some lightning photos on this day and I have to say it takes a lot of patience and luck to get it right. I took so many photos that but I didn't like 99% because I either didn't like the composition of it or there wasn't enough lightning or the photo was too blurry. I was using my monopod because I didn't pack my tripod this day.


  1. Photo 4: Is that me walking?
    Photo 7: When are we going Zumbo again?
    Photo 13: I like the effect of the strobe on the guy in the picture. I can't wait till we upgrade our lighting system.
    Photo 17: That was a cool shop, I may go in there to get props for shoots - whatcha think?
    Photo 18: HAHA! Gangster with a pug baby
    Photo 20: HAHA both their faces
    Photo 27: AMAZING!
