Eldorado Dredge – Analog Photography

img002 copy

The Eldorado Dredge in Eldorado, Victoria was one of the biggest dredges to operate in the Southern Hemisphere.

I made this image of the buckets that did the digging by putting my arm through the mesh of the window. I used a a really shallow depth of field to keep the eye focused on the buckets themselves. I have found that this is a particularly effective effect when using film.

Light Reflection

Lights Reflections on a Wall

Lights Reflections on a Wall

Visiting Friends a couple of weeks ago I noticed theses lights that reflected their light onto the wall. I couldn’t leave without making an image. I find the way that the lights interact with each other causing the patterns to combine and interact with each other really fascinating.

Startrials over Lake Eppalock

I have made images like this one before and while this image is not that different from the others I wanted to try and so I could apply all the skill I have acquired on those attempts. For this one I wanted some detail in the lake so I travelled about a kilometre down the shore so that I could on top of a hill rather then the end of the boat ramp. I may have been helped here buy the intermittent cloud that was above me in this, this may also explain the red haze to the right of the city. I also bumped the ISO up to 800 to attempted to collect more light and thus more details in both the sky and the water.

All in all I am very happy with this image and hopefully on the next attempt I can do better agian.

This image of Lake Eppalock taking at night was made with an eight and half minute exposure. I wanted to try and replicate an image I had seen called “Harvest Moon over Puget Sound” seen by Michael Kenna. Unfortunately the longer exposure caused my battery to go flat before I could make a number of images that I could stack together, I have not yet had the desire to go back try again. I would like to try film as well and see if I can make the photograph with a single exposure.

Sunrise over the MCG

I have been a bit slack once again and have left off updating this blog for way to long.

So today I am sharing a photograph I made in Melbourne last week of the sun rising of the Melbourne Cricket Ground. I was really captured by the number of people that stopped to watch and pulled out their phones to take a quick pic before running of to work.

While on a camping trip the other week I spent the night camping next to Greens Lake north of Elmore in Victoria. I made this image in the morning before climbing back into my swag and going back to sleep.

Paddy’s River Falls

Paddy's Flat Falls, New South Wales, Australia

On a recent trip to Southern New South Wales I visited a place called Paddy’s Flat Falls. I spent quite a couple of days there trying to hide hide from the heat and photographing the Water Fall all while drinking copious amounts of coffee.
