PhotoProject :: when just a 50mm lens won’t do

IMG_0980-1-2 I was out walking, enjoying the late summer evening. Just to keep my self challenge I just had my Cannon Rebel with only it prime lens, a 50mm. Just using the one prime lens (not a zoom) means you have to do a bit more searching and moving around to get a well composed or interesting shot. In theory it sharpens up some sloppy habits and makes you think about the image more. Well This scene looking up the Yarra valley in the distance begged for a wide angle panorama to take in Mt Dandenong. So, easy just take a series of three and stitch them with autostitch.

I guess this kind of defeats the purpose of only carrying the one lens, but then again I did get the panoramic view I dany pano pano-001

waiting for a bite

waiting for a bite, originally uploaded by imageo.

This was captured in one those fleeting moments as the suns sets, using a high ISO setting so luckily I avoided the digital noise that often is associated with extending the tonal range on such a contrasty RAW file. OR was it improved techniques in Lightroom 4,1 Beta?

Happy Family


The My Family cartoon stickers are very popular on the rear windows of cars at the moment. This is the biggest single collection I have spotted so far, BUT the saddest collection was reported recently on twitter, it just had mum, two kids and a dog with a faint outline where the dad had once been.

Taken with my Android Cameraphone. Having a camera on your phone and with you all the time, means there is no excuse not to record those little things that enrich life.
