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.
