Sample Work for Photography Course.

The course is titled “Take Your DSLR Off Auto” and I thought it would fit nicely with where my photographic skills are. It turns out to be very relevant to my current skill set and will propel my image making skills to the next level.

Photography Course. Notes and Set work.

I have enrolled at the Adelaide College of the Arts to learn how to get better value from my digital camera, beyond learning what all the settings do to the images I capture I want to know how to frame and create more interesting and rewarding images.

When I look at the prints from past masters who spent a lifetime learning the craft and creating images it seems that there is a lot to learn. But a friend  has advised that being creative is about trying stuff and keeping the parts you like or you think may appeal.

So I have to actually get out there and use the camera and stop fussing about the shutter speed, fstop and ISO settings.

This sample image is from a bike workshop where people go to rebuild and restore old bikes and help others learn how to service their own bikes.

The frame in the foreground is a project I worked on last year in August after my own commuter bike was stolen from outside work in Adelaide.

France Visit September 2011

I decided on short notice to visit Nicole, Sam, Antonin and Amelia in St Michel which is a suburb of Angouleme about 3 hours by TGV South of Paris.

Sam met me at the Angouleme train station and drove me their home in St Michel, we walked in and surprised Nicole who had no idea I was coming. It was great to see her and the family after nearly 10 months since their visit to Australia last year.

Here is a photo of Tins with his pet guinea pig.
