Brisbane Zombie Walk 2012 - Part 2

Brisbane Zombie Walk

After posting the first part of this series I was asked a few questions about the settings that I used on my camera and how I post processed the photos.  I shot exclusively in Aperture Priority mode and shot with the lens wide open most times (even when shooting into the sun).  I did want to have some over exposed effects coming into the photos and I wanted to shoot without flash as well. There were a couple of times where I did stop down a little but it was fairly rare.  I also controlled my focus point and used centre weighted metering and rarely went above iso 200 or 400.

There was so much happening this weekend in Brisbane it was hard to decide what to photograph.  Sunday was the annual Brisbane Zombie Walk which is now affiliated with the Brain Foundation of Australia.  It always makes for an awesome event with the many different characters that can be seen in this walk.  It was a great event to photograph and it was great to meet up with some fellow photography friends on the way.  For more information about the Zombie Walk please have a look at http://www.brisbanezombiewalk.com

One rare rainy day in Brisabne

A rainy day in Brisbane

It has been quite a while since we have had rain in Brisbane and yesterday looked like the best chance of actually getting wet.  Unfortunately there was not much rain in it but I had about 30minutes to spare during the day and decided to get out and take a couple of photos and also play with the camera in the rain.  Here are a couple of pics from around Brisabne taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 with the Panasonic 12-35mm lens and the Olympus 60mm Macro lens.

Confidence and style on the streets

Its easy to have excuses for not getting out there and shooting with your camera - especially the things that you enjoy shooting.  Photography, like most things takes practice to master and while I have not posted here for a couple of weeks I always ensure that I spend a little time shooting and continuing to learn.  With a new camera, such as the Olympus OM-D E-M5 it takes a lot of time to master and fully understand it before using it for professional work and then you often just choose fairly simple assignments to shoot.

Playing with an Olympus 75mm f1.8 lens on the streets and beyond

Shooting the streets of Brisbane

I unexpectedly received my Olympus 75mm f/1.8 lens this morning and couldn’t wait to find something to shoot with it.  I had ordered this quite some time ago, however this lens has been quite difficult to come across (especially in Australia).  I had briefly shot with this lens back in June while shooting on the streets in Malaysia with Robin Wong (see his reviews at http://robinwong.blogspot.com) and was super impressed with it at this time.

More recently, with so many different types of cameras and lenses to choose from, it can be quite confusing for any street photographer (or in fact any photographer) to choose the right camera and lens combination that works for them.  I believe that each person develops their own style of shooting and this includes finding a camera and lens combination that feels comfortable as well as performs to their expectations.  All working cameras can take a photograph, but it takes practice, skill, expertise and a little patience to capture a particular moment or memory.

A theme of commonality

is that a phone I see

I had to walk through Brisbane city today so decided to pack my camera and take a few photos on the street.  I didn't get more than about 100m from the bus stop when I realised that there was something common about all the people around me.  It seemed as though so many of the people on the street today were actively using their mobile phones as they went about their business - in fact I hadn't really noticed how consumed so many of us have become with mobile technology.

Random Brisbane Street Photography

Its all about the flowers

I have had a few emails over the last few weeks asking if I actually shot on the streets of Brisbane and if I had any photos to share.  Now I have no excuse for the lack of posts about my street shoots in Brisbane.  I could blame it on a re-design of the site but for some reason I find it easier to post images and write stories when I am mega busy and traveling.  While at home I seem to find excuses not to post as often.  I promise to make a little more effort to post some local street pics considering I live in Brisbane and usually head out for a little shutter
