Shot of the Day #11

This photo of the Eastern Freeway – outbound from the Melbourne CBD was taken tonight around 2 hours ago. I love the streaming car-lights of freeways and whenever there’s an opportunity to get a shot of moving car-lights I’ll take it :P For beginners I think this type of long exposure is an awesome start to building enthusiasm for urban night photography.

Shot of the Day #10

This photo isn’t anything too fancy, however I really like this photograph because I managed to get a clear sharp focus on the insect and managed to capture the water droplets as well in the tiny depth of field :P ! I used my kit lens, 18mm-75mm, so it wasn’t a special macro lens. The other factor in this photograph is the clarity achieved from such a large original ( however, reduced the quality for the web), which wouldn’t have been possibly with a low pixel count, whereas 14.2 mega-pixels does help a lot when cropping down!

Shot of the Day #4

This was taken on the rocks at Mooloolaba, Queensland. I was experimenting with long exposures to create a dreamy effect with the crashing waves, however the photograph is lacking warmth and unfortunately in Mooloolaba the Sun sets in the opposite direction to the open seas, so the lighting was very cool.

Blue Moon – Melbourne, Victoria

Just saw the Blue Moon rise over the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria.

“A blue moon is a thirteenth full moon in a year. Most years have twelve full moons which occur approximately monthly, but in addition to those twelve full lunar cycles, each solar calendar year contains an excess of roughly eleven days compared to the lunar year of 12 lunations.” [Read the full Wikipedia article]
