Street photography

Street photography captures people and places within the public domain. It's always interesting to observe the surroundings and try to take a photo at just the right moment. 

Yesterday we went to the State library to see the World Press Photo 17 exhibition and Beauty in Difference: the street photography of Jon Lewis. We were quite inspired by this style of photography so spent the next hour or 2 snapping away in the streets of Sydney and in Hyde Park. A lot of photos were taken but we've decided to post a grid that focusses more on places than people.

Here are our two takes on street photography.....

Vivid


Last night we went to Vivid, which is a festival of light, music and ideas.

Canon ran a photography walk where we were are able to borrow a Canon 80D and be shown a few tips on how to get some good shots of Sydney's iconic Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

 The lights were amazing and we were taken to some less crowded areas around the harbour to play around with long exposures, double exposures, and slow shutter speeds, using our tripods. We were completely out of our comfort zone as neither of us has done very much night photography,  but with a small group and a patient instructor we both got some photos we were really happy with.

Here are our two take of Vivid....

At the zoo

Yesterday we went to the zoo. It was a glorious autumn day in Sydney so it was lovely to wander around looking at all the animals. It's such a beautiful location and many of the animals and birds were in fine form.

Here are our two takes from Taronga zoo...

Bradley's Head to Chowder Bay walk

We had a wonderful walk yesterday, we went from Bradley's Head to Chowder Bay in Mosman. It was a very humid and damp day, lots of puddles and brow mopping but it was lovely to be so close to the harbour and marvel yet again at the beauty of Sydney as we chatted along the way.
