An encounter with a student rally protesting university cuts in Brisbane

Being on the street with a camera means that there is always a photo opportunity (if you look hard enough) - in this case I was able to capture an emergency rally against the governments proposed funding cuts to university education (you can read more about this at the Australian online). One of the great things about being a street photographer, is the ability to tell a story through photos.

Just a couple of Brisbane City street photos

sunlight and flowers

My random wednesday was cut a little short today, however I still did manage to get a couple of photos out on the street.  Its often very easy to find an excuse not to take a photo but one of the things I have learned in street photography over the years is that if you are not out taking photos then you are not learning and possibly missing a great moment that may have appeared right in front of you as you were walking.  As far back as I can remember, my approach has just to randomly walk (often with som eflexible idea in mind).

One to one macro with the Olympus 60mm lens

its a bugs world

This week was a focus on macro photography with the Olympus 60mm f/2.8 lens mounted on the Olympus OM-D E-M5.  The settings were full manual including full manual focus.  I used the 1:1 switch on the lens to ensure it was set at the full magnification of 1:1.  I don't usually shoot at this magnification but I was really just playing to make sure I really understood this lens before I took it underwater for a little fun.  All photos were taken handheld and with the FL-50R flash in IR mode (also hand held).
