Kane is a remarkable photographer and I enjoy following his photographs on Flickr, while receiving awesome inspiration and learning fresh techniques :) .
Kane’s Autobiography (from Flickr profile):
My name is Kane Gledhill, I am 27 years old.
I live in Brisbane, QLD, Australia.
I’ve been a keen photographer for over 15 years; I picked up my first SLR camera when I was still in school, back when I lived in New Zealand. It was a Vivitar v2000 and it cost me $300.00 cash! I’ve probably put 100’s of rolls of film through this little gem, I’d never sell.
This was taken in George Town – Penang, Malaysia. A small incense stand on the corner of a road selling the sweet scented incense sticks. I corrected the exposure using levels and vignetted the edges to draw more attention to the centre of the photograph.
I love low pressure sodium lights, they produce such an interesting light and is the one common thing across nearly all night urban-photography making for a great subject.This was taken on the streets of Batu Ferringhi, Penang near the main night markets. I used the smaller aperture to create a more sparkly effect of the light source and to encapsulate all the surroundings with a greater depth of field. I really like the lens flare produce, some people hate it, but in this case here I think it adds greater emphasis to the subject.

This photo was taken in Batu Ferringhi in the late-afternoon sun with the warm light illuminating the right side of the horse and owner, and creating a softer tone. On the beaches of Penang there are heaps of water-sports available: Jet Skiing, Paragliding, Banana Rides, etc; or you could ride along the beach on horse back. So this pair (in the photo) were nearly always waiting at the front gate of my hotel :) .
